In-form Sevilla host Manchester United opponents in the semifinal of the Europa League, Celta Vigo in this match.

Sevilla have recently returned to form with 2 wins and a draw from their last 3 matches.

Prior to that time, they had lost 2 of 3 games.

They are currently sitting comfortably in 4th position in the league table which guarantees them Champions League football next season.

However, they will want to avoid a late slump that could see them fall off the top 4 even though they currently have 8 points more than 5th placed Villarreal.

Sevilla are solid at home, they have not lost any of their last past 9 home games, winning 6, and drawing 3 in the process.

Celta Vigo seem to have prioritized the Europa League over the La Liga, with nothing to lose, they might still field an inferior team in this encounter as they keep their players fresh for their European tie with United.

Celta Vigo have lost 3 of their last 4 games, and away from home, they have won 2 of their last 3 games. They are currently 10th with 44 points, same point as 11th placed Alaves who could topple them if they lose.
