Sevilla and Manchester United lock horns again for the second leg of the Europa League at Estadio Ramon on April 20, 2023, with the first leg tie being 2-2.

Sevilla vs Manchester United Preview

Sevilla were second best in the first half at Old Trafford, with Sabizter scoring two goals in the first half within 21 minutes. It looked like Manchester United had already secured a victory against the Spanish side.

Jose Luis Mendilibar’s side were never relenting, and they still had the intention of attacking and scoring goals even though they were behind in the first half. 

In the last 10 minutes of the match, Sevilla attacked Manchester United aggressively, leading to two own goals. 

There is something exceptional about Sevilla in the Europa League competition; they have won the tournament on six different occasions. 

It will not be shocking to see them go through this 2022–23 Europa League season. Sevilla will have to win the Europa League this season to qualify for the Champions League next season.

Sevilla are currently in 13th place on the La Liga table, 16 points behind fourth-placed Real Sociedad. Mendilibar men had gotten seven points from three matches.

They are looking forward to qualifying for the next round of the Europa League at the expense of Manchester United, which will be very difficult to do.

Manchester United should have sought out a win against Sevilla in the first leg, but the two own goals from Maguire and Malacia proved to be a dangerous encounter for them. 

With Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane out of the match, Sevilla’s attackers will find it easy against Manchester United’s defense. Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof will replace both players.

Manchester United are looking confident of defeating Sevilla in Spain, but Erik Ten Hag’s side is picking up injuries at the worst possible stage of the season.

Manchester United have the habit of bouncing back after a disappointing encounter; they defeated Nottingham Forest 2-0 with total dominance.

Antony and Diogo Dalot scored two goals to move Manchester United into third place on the Premier League table. Manchester United are three points off fourth place and six points off fifth-place Tottenham with a game to play. 

Sevilla

They are the favorites to win the Europa League title, even though they failed to win the match at Old Trafford. Manchester United are waiting for their first victory against Sevilla.
