Sevilla and Man United meet in their UEFA Europa League quarter-final second leg on Thursday.
It was the proverbial game of two halves in the first leg at Old Trafford, with the Red Devils looking good for their 2-0 advantage at the break, yet six-time winners of this competition Sevilla were able to mount a stunning late comeback via two own goals.
Erik ten Hag’s men have tended to lean on the goals of Marcus Rashford more on their travels, and the question remains if they will be able to find the firepower to see them through to the last four when they head to Seville, where their hosts have won seven of their last nine matches on their own patch.
What the coaches say
José Luis Mendilibar, Sevilla coach: “It’s 50-50. It will be very complicated and even after drawing 2-2 away we are not ahead in the tie. The fans will help, but on the pitch it is 11 against 11. This United team have experience on their side.”
Erik ten Hag, Man United coach: “We have to use motivation as a tool and control it. The timing of that is important. In big games especially, we have to know how to use it. We need to focus on the game and play the best game we can. Our organisation all over the pitch is quite good. We need to do better attacking. I am confident that we can score goals tomorrow (Thursday).”
