Manchester United v Sevilla Betting Preview – UEFA Champions League 13th March 7.45pm

After these two battled out to a 0-0 draw in Spain in the first leg, the tie is nicely balanced. Manchester United did a decent job in the first leg against a good home side and now will look take advantage of things back on home soil themselves. However, Sevilla won’t feel too disheartened because they know that if they can get an away goal on the board they will still be well in this tie. This should be a very interesting climax.

Manchester United News and Form

There is still likely to be a tight tussle for Manchester United to get through this tie. They won their group to get through to this stage for what is the first time since the 2013/14 season. From their nine previous visits to this round, the Red Devils are W6 D3 including having won six of their last seven ties in this round of competition. Their two-legged tie history against Spanish sides is W6 L7. Going back to the group stage of this season’s campaign the Red Devils won five of their six games and all three at Old Trafford.

United have suffered just the three losses in their last 19 European contest home and away combined (W13 D4). After the first leg out in Spain, Manchester United have only won twice in their last twelve games against Spanish sides (D5 L5) so victory for them in this one could only come by a tight margin. Manchester United to win to nil at bet365 is at 5/2* (Betting Odds taken at 00:39 a.m. on March 10th, 2018). At home their record is W9 D10 L4 against Spanish sides, winning just one of their last six. United have won 11 of the 15 UEFA competition ties in which they recorded a first-leg away draw.

Sevilla News and Form

So the Spaniards will turn up knowing that they are still in this tie. They will have been disappointed not to have gotten a goal on the board at home though as they aim to book a quarter-final place for the first time in their history. Their record from three previous away games at this stage is D1 L2. They will have to overcome some poor form in England though where they are winless in six previous visits (D3 L3), their last trip there yielding a draw against Liverpool back on match day one of this season’s group stage campaign. Sevilla failed to win any of their three group stage away games, losing at Spartak Moscow and drawing with Liverpool and Maribor so they don’t look to be great travellers, but have suffered just the two defeats in their last 11 away games in UEFA competition and under 2.5 goals at bet365 looks to be the right way to swing for this one at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:39 a.m. on March 10th, 2018). The Andalucian club’s record in two-legged knockout ties against Premier League sides is W1 L1. Sevilla have won three of the six UEFA competition ties in which they drew the home first leg. Currently, the La Liga side are W4 D1 L1 in their last six away games in all competitions, that sequence including a Copa del Rey success at Atletico Madrid.

Manchester United v Sevilla Predictions

This should be a tight fixture. Manchester United’s form against Spanish sides has been dodgy at best and Sevilla don’t look a major threat out on the road in Europe but will pose something of a threat if they have to chase an away goal. Look for United to win by that one goal margin to squeeze through.
