Man Utd vs Sevilla Preview
The Red Devils have already dispatched two La Liga sides in this season’s tournament, eliminating Barcelona and Real Betis, while Sevilla have overcome PSV Eindhoven and Fenerbahce in the knockout rounds.
This is not the European competition that Man United will want to get used to operating in, with head coach Erik ten Hag having ambitions of taking the club back to the top of the Champions League tree, but the Europa League provides another chance to win some major silverware this season.
The Red Devils ended their six-year trophy drought by lifting the EFL Cup at the end of February, and they are also still active in the FA Cup, preparing to take on Brighton & Hove Albion in the semi-finals of the competition on April 23.
Ten Hag‘s side are fourth in the Premier League table, meanwhile, three points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, and they will enter this match off the back of successive home league victories over Brentford and Everton, keeping clean sheets in both fixtures.
A busy end to the month will see Man United – Europa League winners in 2017 – play another six matches, including both legs of their quarter-final with Sevilla, as the second leg at Estadio Ramon will take place next week.
The Red Devils eliminated Barcelona in the Europa League knockout round playoffs before beating Real Betis 5-1 on aggregate in the round of 16; Sevilla are now standing between the English giants and another major European semi-final, and they have lost their last two games against the La Liga outfit, including in the semi-finals of the Europa League back in 2020.
Delivering three trophies and a top-four finish would represent an excellent first campaign for Ten Hag at the helm, and it will be fascinating to see how the season ends for the Red Devils.
