Our prediction for this Europa League match:
All eyes will be on Old Trafford when Manchester United and Sevilla face each other in the Europa League quarter-finals, first leg. The Red Devils recorded a routine 2-0 win over Everton at the weekend, meaning that they are high on confidence ahead of Thursday’s clash. Anthony Martial is pushing for a rare start after sealing the victory at the weekend, with fit-again midfielder Christian Eriksen pushing for a recall as well. Important midfielder Casemiro is back from suspension, whereas Marcus Rashford faces race against the clock to be fit for the first leg.
Los Sevillanos, on the other hand, are not enjoying a season to remember, with the team sitting in the danger zone in the La Liga standings. Since Jose Luis Mendilibar’s troops are not regarded as good travellers, we are tempted to put our money on Erik ten Hag’s charges. Lucas Ocampos is back from the domestic ban, while both Jesus Corona and Joan Jordan should miss out with injuries.
