Man United v Sevilla Betting tips: Who will make the Europa League final?
Manchester United hope to go one step closer to Europa League success tonight but will have to overcome Europa specialists Sevilla – who are bidding to make their fourth final in six seasons.
Whoever triumphs this evening will play the winner of Inter Milan or Shakhtar Donetsk in Friday’s final in Cologne.
The game gets underway from 20:00 (UK Time) on BT Sport 1, but first, we’ll give you a rundown of some of the crucial battles and key odds ahead of kick-off.
These two sides have only played each other twice in their long history, but Sevilla hold the edge advancing past United over two-legs in the Champions League last-16 in 2018.
Fancy history to repeat itself? Sevilla are 2/1 to triumph in normal time, with a repeat of their 2-1 victory at Old Trafford two years ago at 10/1.
On the double chance the five-time Europa League winners are 1/2 to win or draw.
As for United, there’s 31/20 about them for victory in 90 minutes. While the Red Devils are 3/4 to qualify for the final.
This could be a topsy-turvy goal-fest with Over 3.5 goals at 10/3. Sevilla are hard to break down though. It’s 5/4 to be 0-0 at half-time.
Man United should again field their dynamic trio up front of Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial.
However, Juan Mata may have a shout of returning to the first XI after his guile helped unlock a stubborn Copenhagen rear-guard last week.
Elsewhere, Victor Lindelof may be restored and replace Eric Bailly in defence alongside skipper Harry Maguire.
The midfield tussle could be where the game is won and lost, will the finesse of Ever Banega or the dynamism of Paul Pogba or Bruno Fernandes be the difference?
Fresh from his last-gasp winner against Wolves, Sevilla’s Luis Ocampos will have to be well marshalled in attack.
Anthony Martial is 6/1 to open the scoring for United, the Frenchman has been in fine form in recent weeks and would have netted against Copnehagen if it wasn’t for an inspired performance from Karl-Johan Johnsson.
Bruno Fernandes got the match-winner and he’s 9/2 to score anytime in a Red Devils victory. Mason Greenwood has looked sharp since Project Restart, the teenage forward is 14/5 to score anytime.
As for Sevilla, Ocampos is at 21/10 to notch anytime, Munir El Haddadi is at 3s to add to his seven goals in this competition.
