It is now time to shift the spotlight to some Europa League action this week where Manchester United will be hosting their La Liga counterparts Sevilla at the historical Old Trafford. Both the teams carry very less experience to play against each other and it will be interesting to see the fixture between the two.
Manchester United defeated Real Betis in round 16 with an aggregate score of 1-5 and qualified for the next round of the Europa League. Top bookmakers in India all have Champions League odds on their platform.
Sevilla defeated Fenerbahce in a thrilling two-leg fixture with an aggregate score of 1-2. The 1st leg saved Sevilla from getting knocked out of the competition.
Since the beginning of the second half of the Premier League, the Red Devils have come out stronger but March was not the month for Erik Ten hag and his boys. At first, they witnessed an embarrassing loss against Liverpool by 7-0 and then they witnessed a loss at St.James Park against Newcastle by 2-0. The inconsistency of winning the games is a major concern for team management.
There is still no clarity on the appearance of Luke Shaw but Raphael Varane might be part of the starting XI. Rashford is injured as well.
Predicted Lineup: De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia, Eriksen Casemiro, Antony, Fernandes, Sancho, Martial
The La Liga club has witnessed a major dip in their performance in the ongoing season of club football. From the 4th spot last year, Sevilla has dropped down to the 13th spot in the point table. Los Nervionenses witnessed a draw in their last game against Celta Vigo by 2-2. The squad is carrying a very poor record in the away games and this will impact the result of the upcoming fixture.
There are no injuries in the Sevilla camp and the club will have all the players to start the game.
Predicted Lineup: Dmitrovic, Montiel, Bade, Nianzou, Acuna, Fernando, Gueye, Suso, Lamela, Gil, En-Nesyri
Manchester United are a strong team of the two but Rashfors injury can hamper their scoring chances as they don’t have a consistent goal-scorer. However, we predict a narrow win for Manchester United as Sevill carry a very poor record in away games.
