Manchester United vs. Sevilla Preview, Squad Report & Prediction

Manchester United will look for a first-leg advantage when they welcome Sevilla to Old Trafford in the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday night.

Team Form

Manchester United

After six years, Manchester United finally broke their trophy drought by winning the EFL Cup in February. They’re still in the running for the FA Cup and are set to face Brighton & Hove Albion in the semi-finals on April 23.

As for their league form, United currently sits in fourth place on the Premier League table, three points clear of Tottenham Hotspur in fifth. They’ve secured two consecutive home wins against Brentford and Everton, both of which they kept clean sheets.

The Red Devils have a packed schedule for the remainder of April, with six matches to play, including both legs of their quarter-final clash with Sevilla in the Europa League. The second leg will take place next week.

Unfortunately, it’s been a disappointing season for Sevilla in La Liga, with the team sitting in 13th place. While they’re five points clear of the relegation zone, they’re 19 points behind fourth-placed Real Sociedad.

This means that winning the Europa League is crucial for Sevilla to secure a spot in the 2023-24 season Champions League.

Despite their struggles in the domestic league, Sevilla has been making strides in the Europa League. They progressed to the knockout round playoff with a 3-2 aggregate win before beating Fenerbahce 2-1, despite losing the tie’s second leg in Turkey.
