Sevilla vs Manchester United

, KO: 20:00 Apr 20, 2023, Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium
Manchester United

MANCHESTER UNITED appeared to be cruising to a semi-final berth in the Europa League last week with just over five minutes to go…but they shot themselves in the foot and competition specialists Sevilla will relish Thursday's return in Spain.

United were two goals up thanks to Marcel Sabitzer's first-half double. But not only did they lose key defender Lisandro Martinez to injury, they managed to concede two own goals in the final six minutes from Tyrell Malacia and Harry Maguire.

It means it's all to play for in Andalusia and the record six-times winners of this competition will fancy their chances against the 2/1 tournament favourites.

United got back to winning ways at the weekend in a relatively comfortable win at Nottingham Forest and can take comfort from a 1-0 win on their last visit to Seville when they defeated city rivals Real Betis 1-0.

But they have also produced a couple of horror shows on the road at Liverpool and Newcastle United and they will be wary of their hosts at a packed Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.

Sevilla are unbeaten in their last four games and chalked up a morale-boosting win at the Mestalla at the weekend when they won at Valencia.

They may be a lowly 12th in La Liga, but can raise their game for the big occasion.

How the bookies view it

Manchester United are favourites here despite being away and are just over evens generally at 11/10 with bet365.

Sevilla can be backed at 13/5 with UniBet and the draw is also 13/5 with William Hill.

United are 4/7 to qualify with bet365 and Sevilla are 6/4 with UniBet,

Recent head to heads

As stated, Sevilla came back from the dead to achieve that 2-2 draw at Old Trafford last week. United have failed to defeat Sevilla on four occasions.

Players to watch

Moroccan World Cup hero Youssef En-Nesyri is the danger man for Sevilla and has scored 34 La Liga goals in 59 starts for them. He is 21/10 to score with Paddy Power.

Antony opened the scoring for United at the weekend and the Brazilian has scored eight goals for United since his big-money move from Ajax. He is 19/5 with William Hill to score in Spain.

Anything else catch the eye?

United messed it up once, but they should be too strong here despite a hostile atmosphere and they can win on the night.

There's an argument Spanish football, in general, isn't as powerful as it once was and Sevilla are in the lower half of La Liga.

Nor is their home ground a fortress these days with Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund, Rayo Vallecano, Real Sociedad and Osasuna all winning here this season, as well as Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

However, United's defence looks far from watertight now with Martinez out and there could be value in also backing an away win with both teams to score at an attractive 31/10 with 10bet.
