Manchester United vs Sevilla PREVIEW & PREDICTION 13/03/2018


Tuesday evening, Manchester United and Sevilla will fight to get their names on the list of drawers for the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

A disciplined defense and De Gea’s good interventions allowed Manchester United to win a draw in Sevilla. Mourinho’s team will now try to finish the game in front of their fans, where the results of this season were largely positive. In the 20 matches played in all of the Old Trafford competitions, United has managed to impose 17 times and end two draws. Only Manchester City managed to defeat the “Red Devils” on “The Theater of Dreams”.

The hosts have won a big win over the weekend, even on their own stadium. Two goals scored by Rashford brought victory in the match with the rival, Liverpool. Success has had a beneficial effect on the morale of players who have received a good dose of confidence in their own strengths.

Sevilla has reached three more times in the best of the Champions League, but has not yet managed to get through this stage. Andalusians once again have an infernal mission and the top of the team seems to have passed. The guests lost two of the last four games played.
The tournament was the first official match between the two clubs.

Probable teams:

Paul Pogba was injured and missed the match with Liverpool for this reason. He may also be missing on Tuesday. Martial has not played in the last three matches and is uncertain this time. He would be joining Ander Herrera, Phil Jones, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo.

The guests are forced to rely on Gabriel Mercado to secure the right flank of the defensive. Jesus Navas, Sebastien Corchia and Miguel Layun, the three favorite options for that post being either injured or ineligible in the Champions League.

Manchester United (4-2-3-1)
De Gea – Young, Smalling, Bailly, Valencia – McTominay, Matic – Rashford, Sanchez, Mata – Lukaku

Sevilla (4-2-3-1)
Rico – Escudero, Lenglet, Kjaer, Mercado – Banega, N’Zonzi – Correa, Vazquez, Sarabia – Muriel

Taking advantage of Sevilla’s weaker times, Mourinho’s superior experience in the competition and the advantage of his own ground, Manchester United should be able to qualify for the match Tuesday night.
