Manchester United vs Sevilla FC Predictions: Home Advantage to Count


Match Preview

The stage is set for the home side to progress into the next round of the Champions League, ahead of our Manchester United vs Sevilla FC preview and soccer odds, with a 0-0 result in the first leg in Spain meaning that the Red Devils only have to keep things tight as usual to stand a good chance of going through.

Manchester United have boasted a tremendous record at Old Trafford in recent months, with Jose Mourinho’s football proving effective even if it may be criticised for being negative. Sevilla have improved since the appointment of Vincenzo Montella, but they have weaknesses at the back.

Our Manchester United vs Sevilla FC predictions back the hosts to find their way into the next round on Tuesday evening, which means that a home victory is on the cards in our Champions League tips.

The home advantage should prove too strong for Los Nervionenses to battle back against, with Old Trafford a fortress in both domestic and European competitions. Sevilla probably lost their chance of progressing further in the Champions League after firing a blank in the first leg.

Manchester United vs Sevilla FC Prediction and Betting Advice

Man United have lost just one of their last 51 competitive games at Old Trafford, with Mourinho’s side always very tough to beat on their own patch. Given that Sevilla boast a similar kind of run at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, they very much missed their chance to lay a good foundation for this week by recording a 0-0 stalemate in the first leg.

Betfair offer the best odds on the home side taking a victory on Tuesday evening, with Mourinho’s men most recently managing to defeat Chelsea by a 2-1 scoreline on their own patch. Despite being touted as a tough game, Man United scraped their way through, both going on to earn a morale-boosting three points in a comeback against Crystal Palace.

Sevilla’s away record should let them down somewhat in this contest, having won just five of their last 10 on the record in all competitions. Two recent away wins came against Las Palmas and Malaga respectively in La Liga, two teams who are really struggling at the wrong end of the table.

Our Manchester United vs Sevilla FC bets back the home side to keep things tight at Old Trafford, as they’ve managed to do for a while now. The hosts have conceded just one goal in their last five competitive outings at home, with a solitary goal for Chelsea the only thing to have beaten David De Gea.

The hosts’ Spanish goalkeeper was in terrific form at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, denying Luis Muriel on a number of occasions to ensure that Man United took a clean sheet on their Champions League travels. De Gea looks capable of doing the same again midweek, with Sevilla set to struggle and likely fail to score an away goal. William Hill offer the best value on there to be less than three goals in this one.

Our Manchester United vs Sevilla FC betting tips suggest that the home side will have their way and progress into the next round of the Champions League, courtesy of a Sevilla side that haven’t shown any kind of consistency away from home in Europe or La Liga this campaign.
