Both teams will be wanting to get a bit more respect for there league, after both leagues were embarrassed in the champions league. Along with the added fact that Sevilla knocked United out in 2018 2-1 on aggregate, both teams will be worlds apart from the teams on show that night in 2018.

Sevilla just like United squeaked there way into the champions league spots for next year, so luckily this will be a free hit for Sevilla with champions league secured there isn’t huge pressure from them to go on and win it. A notoriously low scoring team will be looking to keep things steady and nick a win, they rarely ever blow other teams away. They aren’t blessed with world beaters but what you get from Sevilla is a never die attitude and a fighting mentality that makes them dangerous to play whoever they are facing.

Man United have fairly turned the form and performances around since Christmas. Frailties are still evident at the back however the attack are finally starting to gel and really put together some impressive displays. Its no coincidence that performances have changed since Bruno came into the team and Matic allowing the midfield to be more expressive and push up the park more with a presence in front of the defense. With a front 3 who can switch around almost seamlessly it will keep Sevilla on their toes with off the ball movement and runs in behind.

This is a game that will and should be a tight affair, both teams rarely concede in the Europa League however this is the hardest opposition for either team by a long margin. One hand you have a hard working, fight till the end team like Sevilla matched up against an intricate and top heavy team like United which opens it up to a game of unknowns.
