Sevilla FC vs Manchester United Preview

Sevilla FC vs Manchester United

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

Date: 21st February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Sevilla have become one of the most unpredictable teams in Europe this season and they head into this game with no one knowing which Sevilla team will turn up.

They made it through to the knockout stages with just two wins and nine points after coming second behind Liverpool.

If they want to remain in this competition, they need to play higher quality football against Manchester United here.

They have struggled defensively this season, but their comeback spirit like the one that saw them come back from 3-0 down to draw against Liverpool in the group stages could help them here.

Sevilla head into this game off the back of three consecutive wins and two consecutive home clean sheets.

Manchester United finished ahead of Basel in the group stages to setup this match.

The Red Devils would be hoping to build on their impressive away record when they visit Seville for this game.

They head into this game after a 2-0 win over Huddersfield in the FA Cup.

In truth they were not the most impressive side in that game as the Terriers bossed possession and forced them to remain in their half for most of the game, but at the end of the day they won and that is what is important.

United have two wins and two losses from their last four games in all competitions.

The return of Paul Pogba could help them get the win in this game.
