Sevilla and Manchester United are clashing at RheinEnergieStadion in the Europa League Semifinals.
Sevilla has been absolutely fantastic since the restart, and they haven’t lost any of their games, both in LaLiga and the Europa League. They have had a few draws along the way, but Sevilla has still ended in 4th place in LaLiga, which qualified them for the Champions League next season. Sevilla has already played two games in the Europa League, one against Roma where they were the better team, and Sevilla have deservedly won 2-0, and the other one against Wolverhampton in the Europa League quarterfinals a few days ago. In that match, Sevilla has been a dominant and better team with a massive 76% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 14 corner kicks, and high 90% of the correct passes. Wolverhampton was defending well, and Sevilla was struggling with finishing their chances, but the crucial moment happened in the 13th minute when Sevilla’s goalkeeper saved a penalty kick. It was a tough game, but in the 88th minute, Sevilla has scored a winning goal and has deservedly won this match 0-1. El Haddadi has scored 5 goals for Sevilla in the Europa League while Dabbur added 3 goals. Banega has 3 assists. There are no injuries or suspensions in Sevilla as of right now. Sevilla is a great team that likes to keep the ball in their feet, and they have won this competition a few times over the last few years, and they could easily do it again here, they certainly have the quality to do so.
Manchester United has been on fire since the restart, which brought them to third place in the EPL standings, and the Champions League next season. United was dominant both in the group stage of the Europa League, where they won the first place and after the group stage as well. In the Round of 16, United has beaten Lask twice, while they knocked out Copenhagen in the Quarterfinals after the extra time. United was the better team in that match with 55% of ball possession, massive 14 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and solid 85% of the correct passes, but United’s strikers were not having a good day and weren’t able to score any of their great chances. In the end, United was able to score a goal, in the 95th minute from a penalty spot, which was enough for a 1-0 win, and a trip into the Semifinals. Greenwood has scored 5 goals for Manchester United in the Europa League this season, while Martial added 4 goals. Juan Mata has 5 assists. Tuanzebe is the only injured player for Manchester United. Alongside Inter, United is the biggest favorite to win this competition, but to do so, their offense has to get back into goalscoring form, and it has to happen in this match because Sevilla is no joke.
Frankly, this one could go either way, but I just don’t see a scenario where we don’t see goals in this match. United is much better offensively than Wolverhampton, and Sevilla will have a tough time containing them, but Sevilla can also be extremely dangerous in the attacking end. I think we will finally see Sevilla conceding a goal since the Europa League restart.
