The Red Devils set to face off against 6-time UEL Winners Sevilla tonight

The Red Devils Man Utd sets to face off against Spanish team Sevilla this Friday, April 14 at 12:30 AM IST for the first leg of the Europa League Quarterfinals. This match is scheduled to take place at the iconic Old Trafford stadium.

This will be the fourth duel between the MUN and SEV in European Competitions. The general calculation benefits Sevilla, which has never lost against the English team; In terms of numbers, 2 wins for Sevilla, 1 draw and no win for Manchester United. Both sides will be looking to dominate the first leg of this quarterfinal on Friday but the Hosts Man Utd will be favourable to beat the Spanish side having a home advantage with them. But the most decorated club in this competition Sevilla would be tough to beat anywhere.

Manchester United comes from eliminating another Spanish side Real Betis in the Round of 16. A 4-1 triumph at Old Trafford in the first leg and a 1-0 victory in the second leg in Spain, closed the tie with a 5-1 aggregate. Second Spanish rival that leaves out in this edition of the Europa League, after eliminating Barcelona in the round of 16 of the competition.

A rival like Sevilla has a lot of trade and experience in the competition. In addition to the fact that it is a team that Manchester United has not been able to beat. That is why in this match the Red Devils will have to work hard if they want to get their first victory against the Andalusian Team. United has 4 casualties for this match; Alejandro Garnacho, Tom Heaton, Luke Shaw and Donny van de Beek are all out through injury. The Dutch coach will be without Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw, who are both ruled out through injury for this first-leg encounter. Both Casemiro and Christian Eriksen are available for selection after their recent suspension and injury issues, while Rojiblancos is looking for respite from their indifferent domestic campaign.

Sevilla is in these instances of the quarterfinals after eliminating Fenerbahçe in a fairly tight tie. The first leg was a home win for Sevilla by a score of 2-0; while the return in Istanbul was quite painful for the Spaniards who lost 1-0; but they advanced with a 2-1 aggregate.

In the round of 16 of the competition, they experienced an episode similar to that of the Round of 16. Facing PSV they won the first leg at home 3-0, and they lost in Eindhoven 2-0 taking the series in the same way with an aggregate of 3-2. A similar situation in both crosses; makes evident the shortcomings of Sevilla away from home or its little capacity for a resolution to manage a positive result in a two-legged tie.

The 6-time UEL Champions, Sevilla's season could be good if they end up winning the Europa League title once again. In the Domestic Championship (Santander League) until weeks ago they fought to get out of the relegation zone. The numbers of the Andalusian Team have not been the best, and possibly because of that is why they are having such close playoffs.

Jesus Corona and Joan Jordán are the possible casualties that Sevilla presents for this match, everything will depend on the evolution of their injuries ahead of this Thursday's game.


Probable Playing XI:

Man Utd(4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Martinez, Malacia; McTominay, Fernandes; Antony, Sabitzer, Sancho; Weghorst.

Sevilla(4-2-3-1): Dmitrovic; Navas, Gudelj, Bade, Acuna; Fernando, Gueye; Suso, Lamela, Gil; In-Nesyri.
