Sevilla Preview – Can Sevilla go all the way?

The Spanish club have certainly produced a strong finish to their season as they not only grabbed a 4th place finish in La Liga (thus ensuring Champions League football for next season), but they also despatched the likes of Italian side, Roma, 2-0 and Premier league outfit, Wolves, 1-0, on their way to this one-legged semi-final with Manchester United.

Sevilla finished top of Group A during the group stage of this competition by a five-point margin ahead of runners-up, APOEL, by virtue of winning five of their six matches in this phase with victories collected over Qarabag (home and away), APOEL and F91 Dudelange (home and away) which saw them progress to the knockout stages.

The away-goal rule saw Sevilla overcome Romanian outfit CFR Cluj after the scores were level at 1-1 on aggregate over two legs prior to the lockdown, but they’ve come up with the goods in this new one-legged format. In terms of a win here against Manchester United, this will be a tough one to call as United have also been in good form, but goals could be scarce with seven of Sevilla’s last 10 matches resulting in under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Manchester United Preview – Can Man United do enough in Germany?

Manchester United also produced a strong finish to their domestic season in the Premier League as they finished in 3rd place in the English top flight which was thanks to a sustained sequence of impressive results in the second half of the season.

United really kicked on from the end of January as the Red Devils compiled a 14-match unbeaten run which included nine wins that ultimately resulted in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side usurping the likes of Leicester City and Chelsea into a 3rd place finish.

This was the sort of form that United fans have been craving for ever since the departure of former legendary manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, and their team are now just 90 minutes away from another Europa League final. United finished top of Group L after winning four of their six group matches while five of their 11 matches to date in the Europa League have resulted in under 2.5 goals.
