Manchester United are in good shape and tonight will face with Sevilla in Champions league 1/8 finals second leg, first game in Spain ended without goals and Sevilla were better team in that duel but Red Devils somehow saved their net, tonight at Old Traford hosts are favorites and they for sure have enough quality and experience to achieve victory and reach quarter finals.
Hosts are coming to this game after very important victory in last round of Premier league over Liverpool, at this field they scored two goals while conceded only one, however Liverpool were better team in that duel but Mourinho has some pretty good defensive tactics which obviously works, this team maybe isn't playing some very nice football but they achieved quiet good results and are at second position in Premier league where will probably end up.
Now victory is what must be achieved, they have really great players and this team could score much more goals with different tactics, still i doubt that this will be some very open game, Sevilla are coming here to win and for United it won't be easy at all to beat very experienced team which knows how to play European games, still hosts are favorites with a reason and we should watch them in quarter finals.
Manchester United are playing great in front of their fans and only city rivals managed to beat them in front of their fans with one goal margin, i just doubt that Sevilla will manage to do the same, United are back in Champions league after couple very poor seasons and want to involve into race for trophy and must continue in same manner like in past weeks to extend nice streak.
Defenders Blind (5/0), Marcos Rojo (7/0), Jones (21/0) and midfielder Herrera (19/0) are all injured and will miss this match, midfielder Pogba (19/3) and forward Ibrahimovic (5/0) are bot still in doubt due to their injury problems.
Sevilla on the other hand are at decent 5th position at the table in Spanish league but they were struggling to find consistency in their game during this campaign, tonight will have a really difficult mission to eliminate strong Manchester United, they missed a lot of good chances in first leg to take advantage and here in England must show something really great to win and reach next round.
In previous match during weekend Sevilla were defeated in Spain by Valencia, at home stadium they conceded two goals without answering, despite they were the team which had ball possession and created much more chances lack of accuracy costed them, now in front of them are opponents which are playing really great in defense and it will be tough to break them.
Sevilla weren't so impressive in defense and it would be a surprise if they keep a clean sheet in this duel, they are underdogs for this encounter but aren't without chances, this team achieved really impressive results in Europa league and won three consecutive titles, however this is much stronger competition and in front of them are very strong hosts, it seems that they won't play in Champions league for the next season and will try to at least leave a good impression tonight.
Anyway Sevilla are team which mustn't be underrated, their form wasn't so great but they still have quality, their results in matches on the road in this campaign were far from great and this will for sure be one of their most difficult trips in this season, still i'm quiet sure that we'll watch great game tonight.
Defender Corchia (12/0) and midfielder Navas (22/1) are injured and will miss this game while defender Layun (7/0) is cup tied and will stay out.
Manchester United are favorites, this team plays well, as we already said maybe it's not the prettiest football but it brings results, here in front of their fans they can celebrate for sure, Sevilla won't let them to win without some great resist but in the end victory of Manchester United is what we should see here.
