Manchester United to beat Sevilla in Champions League last 16 clash in Spain

Manchester United will face a tricky trip to Spain on Wednesday night to face Sevilla in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie, but fresh from a comfortable FA Cup win over Huddersfield Town at the weekend, the Red Devils will line up in high spirits having bounced back from a shock defeat to Newcastle United in the Premier League, and despite being away from home it's United that have been installed as the match favourites.

  • Manchester United and Sevill have never played each other
  • Manchester United are 2nd in Premier League, Sevilla are 5th in La Liga
  • Sevilla qualified with nine points, Manchester United qualified with 15 points

United To Bag First Leg Lead

Jose Mourinho's United may have struggled to live with neighbours Manchester City in the Premier League, but they have been relative impressive on the European stage this season, and qualified with 15 points out of their six qualifying games to top the group, and if they can emulate those fine European performances then the 6/4 with William Hill for a United win is worth backing.

Sevilla, who are 11/5 shots with Betfair Sportsbook, qualified second to Liverpool in Group E, and showed significant defensive frailties throughout their qualifying campaign, and United will be hoping to make the most of those rearguard problems, and the side that are only fifth in La Liga may find it tough to live with a United side that blossom on the European stage.

Mourinho would certainly take a draw, which is 9/4 with most firms, as he will look to put the tie to bed at Old Trafford in a few weeks, but his side can dominate this contest from the first whistle, and they can put one foot into the last-eight, and bag a narrow victory in Spain on Wednesday evening.
Match Odds:

Cagey Affair Expected In Spain

Mourinho has become accustomed to 'park the bus' on big occasions away from home, and he could adopt similar tactcis on Wednesday night, as he will certainly want to gain a positive result to return to Old Trafford with, so this could be a game devoid of significant goalmouth action, and the 3/4 on offer with Betfair Sportsbook for there to be under 2.5 goals just highlights that.

However, the more attractive bet is for the teams to be tied at half-time, which is 11/10 with Betfair Sportsbook, while the same firm are offering 9/5 for the teams to be tied at 0-0 after 45 minutes, and that is another attractive betting proposition before United go on and snatch the win in the second half.

Sanchez To Strike First

Alexis Sanchez certainly hasn't set the world alight since his well-documented move from Arsenal, but the Chilean sensation will be relishing the chance to play Champions League football again having been made to settle for Europa League action with the Gunners this season, and it could be the night that he makes his mark at United, and at 6/1 with Unibet he is a cracking bet to score first.

Romelu Lukaku is the 11/2 favourite with BetVictor to grab the first goal, while Wissam Ben Yedder heads the betting for Sevilla to strike first, and he is 11/2 with William Hill, but it's Sanchez that can sparkle on the big stage, and he can prove to be the catalyst for a United win.
