Sevilla vs Manchester United PredictionIn a first of two series of Europe League semifinal fixtures billed to go down this weekend, Sevilla are set to take on English giants Manchester United in a one-off game the RheinEnergieStadion on Saturday night. Expect an enthralling game of football between these two sides.
Match status: 2019/20 Europa League - Play Offs - Semi-finals
Kick-off:
Venue: RheinEnergieStadion (Cologne)
The city of Cologne, known for its gilded medieval reliquary, will absolutely be buzzing as they prepare to host one of the biggest European football games of the season. With both sides yet to secure any piece of silverware so far, they will fancy their chances of going all the way in the EL this term.

Sevilla have been very outstanding this season, working their asses off to book a Champions League place via a top-four La Liga finish. Lopetegui guiding his men to string of impressive results after the league restart, Los Palanganas finished fourth on the log, level on points with third-placed Atleti.

Having failed to lay their hands on the Europa League trophy since 2016, Sevilla will have their sights set on the prestigious title this time around, as they aim to break their three-year jinx. For that, they will need a strong performance against Manchester United here, to advance to the finals.

Sevilla vs Manchester United Team News

For a side touted to struggle to finish in the top-half of the Premier League standings, the Red Devils defied all odds, finishing third to mark a much-anticipated return to the Champions League. An imperious run of form in 2020 has assisted United massively in their top-four charge.

Having made light work of LASK Linz in the last-16 of the Europa League, hammering the Austrian Bundesliga outfit to a humiliating 7-1 aggregate defeat. Always considered favorites for the win, United ensured their fans’ entry fee were justified.

Strolling into the quarterfinals of the competition, Man United were pitted against Copenhagen in a heated clash in Cologne. FCK’s goalie was the cream of the crop, making series of crucial saves to keep his side in the tie. However, an extra-time Fernandes spot-kick ensured the Red Devils advanced via a narrow 1-0-win margin.

Just like the Red Devils struggled immensely against their Danish counterparts, Sevilla were made to scrap really hard to secure victory against Wolves. Starting the game on the backfoot, Bono’s great reflexes saved Los Palanganas’ blushes as he kept out an early 12-yard effort from Jimenez.

A frantic game it was at the MSV-Arena from there-on as both sides went all out for the win. With the game nearing its end, Sevilla’s Lucas Ocampos rose ahead of everyone in the box to poke the ball home inside 88 minutes to send his side through to victory.

Impressively, that effort was the Argentine’s 17th goal of the season, in what has been a goal-laden season for him. Lopetegui’s men are on a terrific run of form, remaining unbeaten in each of their previous 19 games on the bounce – a run comprising seven wins from their last eight games.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are not faring any worse. Since the turn of the year, they have been truly exemplary, losing only one game so far – that defeat coming in an FA Cup semifinal game against Chelsea a few weeks ago.

As Solskjaer continues his quest for his first taste of silverware at Old Trafford as head coach, he will be spurring his boys onto a brilliant performance here to post a win against their Spanish counterparts.

Sevilla vs Man United Predictions

Last time out, Copenhagen had their goalkeeper to thank for his exploits as he turned Superman on the night to keep United at bay. However, the Red Devils are a known attacking threat, registering a whopping 13 shots-on-target in that game.

With a remarkable 64 goals and 23 assists between Rashford, Martial and Greenwood, United’s frontline is clearly one of the strongest in Europe. As such, feel free to wager a United win to nil.
