The hosts will be hoping that their good form in Andalusia will help them out, ahead of our Sevilla FC vs Manchester United preview and soccer odds, with Jose Mourinho’s men coming to one of the more difficult stadiums to visit in Spain.
Sevilla have lost just one of their last 36 competitive fixtures at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, with that solitary defeat coming in a recent edition of the Seville derby versus Real Betis. Since then, they’ve got back to winnings ways and will be confident when welcoming Manchester United.
Our Sevilla FC vs Manchester United predictions are based off this form in Sevilla, which makes going against Man United in our Champions League tips look like a very profitable way to look at the first leg of this knock-out tie.
Mourinho’s men have the security of a second leg at Old Trafford to go back to, while Vincenzo Montella’s side know that they have to triumph in their native country to stand any feasible chance of getting into the next round of the Champions League.
Just one home loss in the last calendar year is a very impressive record for Los Nervionenses to boast, with that form alone enough to clearly show that they will be a force to be reckoned with in the Champions League at home. Even under previous coach Eduardo Berizzo they took some good results in this competition.
Maribor and Spartak Moscow were both sent home on the end of defeats, while Premier League club Liverpool threw away a big lead to draw 3-3 at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Sevilla’s last home loss in this competition came back in November 2016, and Sportingbet offer the best odds for them to continue their good record and avoid another on Wednesday evening.
Man United have recently lost to both Tottenham and Newcastle United on their Premier League travels, and their record in the Champions League hasn’t been wholly impressive either. Since their return to the continent’s biggest stage, they have beaten CSKA Moscow, Benfica and lost 1-0 on their travels versus Basel.
Our Sevilla FC vs Manchester United bets back this to be a fairly narrow scoreline, however. With the security of Old Trafford to return to in the second leg, the away side will likely be quite reserved and not take too many risks. Although an away goal would be huge, keeping things organised at the back and not allowing Sevilla to up their confidence would appear to be Mourinho’s best idea.
Unibet offer there being less than three goals in this first-leg clash, which has been the case in Man United’s last two Champions League away outings. Sevilla, meanwhile, have been keeping things tighter at home under Montella and have recently kept clean sheets against Leganes and Girona. Los Nervionenses are looking much more confident under their new Italian boss.
Our Sevilla FC vs Manchester United betting tips suggest that the La Liga club should fancy their chances in the first leg of this tie, given that they have home advantage, an energetic crowd and a new coach that has brought some better performances out of them of late.
