Manchester United has yet to secure a victory against Sevilla, with a record of 0-1-3 in their four previous meetings dating back to 2013. The two teams last clashed in the 2020 Europa League semifinal, which resulted in a 2-1 win for Sevilla, who went on to claim the Europa League title by defeating Inter Milan in the final.
Man United has been in outstanding form in the Europa League, having eliminated Barcelona in the round of 32 and overpowering Betis in the round of 16. They also currently hold fourth place in the Premier League, having won their last two matches as the regular season nears its end.
Sevilla had a close call against Fenerbahçe in the round of 16, as the Turkish side came close to staging a comeback, outshooting Sevilla 15-3 in the second leg. However, Fenerbahçe failed to find a second goal, allowing Sevilla to escape with an aggregate win after a 1-0 loss in the second leg.
With their strong recent form and home advantage, it’s likely that Manchester United will take the lead with a win in the first leg against Sevilla.
