Manchester United vs Sevilla

Grant SmithMar 14, 2018

Emotions were running high after the first leg ended in a goalless draw, with a mixture of both fear and hope despite facing one of the toughest teams in European soccer. "If I finished the session one minutes before it wouldn't have happened".

The Portuguese has guided United to second place in the Premier League, the last-16 of the Champions League and the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Barring the opening exchanges, Sevilla managed to gain a decent possession of the ball, and they controlled the play at the heart of the midfield with Steven N'Zonzi putting in a stellar showing.

"Do I have the ideal team for Champions League success?"

Scott McTominay, a calm defensive midfield presence against Liverpool was left out to make way for Marouane Fellaini, who only returned from injury last week and Juan Mata made way for Jesse Lingard. Ferreyra was shown a yellow card.

The third-most-expensive squad ever assembled had no answer to a Sevilla outfit put together through years of careful bartering and astute scouting.

Manchester United need to win to advance.

The striker scored twice within the space of four minutes, meaning Romelu Lukaku's late goal was nothing more than a consolation for United.

The match finally kicked into action in the 72nd minute when Montella replaced Luis Muriel with Ben Yedder, who had cooled dramatically from his incredible early season form.

Meanwhile, United legend, Rio Ferdinand, had also labelled the Red Devils" No. 1 as the "best goalkeeper in the world' after the first leg in Spain.

Playing Manchester United at Old Trafford has been an extremely daunting prospect for most teams this season, with Mourinho's men losing only to Manchester City out of the 20 matches.

Wissam Ben Yedder was introduced on 70 minutes and he made the flawless impact four minutes later when he broke the deadlock with a clinical finish into the bottom corner.

"Saturday is a new game and lives go on".

Fellaini would come nowhere close to getting into the best United teams but right now, Mourinho believes he needs him.

Manchester United became the second English Premier League club to be knocked out in the Round of 16 after Tottenham.

Spurs even went ahead on the night and appeared to be in pole position to reach the last eight.

In the first leg, Montella elected to leave Wissam Ben Yedder on the bench despite the French worldwide leading the club with 17 goals in all competitions.
