Jose Mourinho's Manchester United resume their UEFA Champions League journey on Wednesday when they travel to face LaLiga side Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in the first leg of their first knockout round tie. The two teams have never met before in an European competition, but both have quite a bit of experience in continental football. Sevilla have won five of their thirteen meetings against English sides, while Manchester United have won just thirteen out of fifty matches against Spanish opposition.
Sevilla had to fight hard to qualify from the group stage but they pulled it off eventually as they finished second behind Liverpool in Group E with 2 wins, 3 draws and just one defeat. They have recorded three consecutive wins in all competitions before this clash, but they are fifth in LaLiga and only the top four get to play Champions League football again next season. Sebastien Corchia is injured but Simon Kjaer has returned to training and might get a spot on the bench for this match. Nolito and Joaquin Correa are injury doubts for the home side.
Manchester United finished at the top of Group A with five wins out of six and just three goals conceded, but they did record a surprising defeat at Basel in the penultimate group match. Since then the Red Devils recorded three Premier League defeats and now their second place behind runaway leaders Manchester City is in serious danger. Last week Man United recorded a 2-0 victory at Huddersfield in the FA Cup. Marouane Fellaini is injured, while Ander Herrera, Marcus Rashford and Daley Blind are all major doubts ahead of Wednesday's game.
Sevilla: Rico - Navas, Mercado, Lenglet, Escudero - N'Zonzi, Pizarro - Sarabia, Vazquez, Nolito - Muriel
Man United: De Gea - Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Young - Matic, Pogba - Mata, Lingard, Sanchez - Lukaku
My prediction: 1-1 draw.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
Sevilla win - 3.20
Draw - 3.29
Man United win - 2.45
Another "exiting" performance for the United fans set up by Mourinho and his staff.
De Gea still should making miracles keeping United in the games but that lasting for years now and it's indicative about United performances in the last seasons.
Anyway now it looks like a good result for United but they could be easily one or two goals own if De Gea wasn't that good,again.
