Sevilla: Europa League Specialists
Europa League specialist Sevilla seems to be finding form at the business end of the campaign, as it aims to lift the trophy for a staggering seventh time. Late own goals from Tyrell Malacia and Harry Maguire have certainly given the Spanish club a chance of progressing to the semifinals following a 2-2 draw in the opening leg against Manchester United.
That, followed by a 2-0 victory over Valencia at the weekend, means Jose Luis Mendilibar remains unbeaten in four games since taking the hot seat, with his side netting twice in each outing. Clean sheets have generally been hard to come by for the hosts, though, managing just three across their last dozen fixtures, six of which have seen both teams score.
Moroccan World Cup hero Youssef En-Nesyri is the danger man for Sevilla and has scored 34 La Liga goals in 59 starts, so if you’re Europa League betting, you should expect him to find the back of the net on Thursday. All Marcos Acuna, Pape Gueye, and Alex Telles are back from the domestic bans, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Man United: Strong Attacking Line
Those two late goals at Old Trafford have certainly dented Manchester United’s chances of going through, as has an ever-extending injury list that includes Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, and Lisandro Martinez. Rashford might return for the second leg, which would certainly enhance the Red Devils’ chance of progressing. Bruno Fernandes is banned for this clash due to yellow card accumulation.
Erik ten Hag’s side could do with the striker as it looks to extend a 10-game unbeaten run in the Europa League, with four of the last five seeing both teams score. United is generally adept at finding the back of the net, particularly on the road, doing so in all but two of its last 20 away fixtures across all competitions, so we will continue to include it in our Europa League picks and parlays.
United got back to winning ways last weekend in a relatively comfortable victory against Nottingham, and we expect it to keep the momentum going. It messed it up once, but it should be too strong here despite a hostile atmosphere and can win on the night. United’s defense looks far from solid now with Martinez out ,and there could be value in backing a high-scoring affair.
United put four goals past Real Betis in the competition’s last round at Old Trafford, a side that is seven places and 13 points ahead of Sevilla in La Liga, however, it was unable to keep a clean sheet. Man United welcomed Christian Eriksen back from a long-term injury, plus Casemiro’s domestic suspension doesn’t apply for European fixtures.
Sevilla vs Manchester United Head-to-Head
Sevilla has scored in each of its four games under new boss Jose Luis Mendilibar but kept just a clean sheet in three of its last twelve outings, half of which have seen both teams score.
United has netted in all but two of its last 20 away fixtures across all competitions, while both teams have scored in four of its last five Europa League matches.
Sevilla is unbeaten in its last three head-to-heads against the Red Devils, winning on two occasions, but all three games produced goals at both ends and at least three goals on the scoresheet.

Sevilla vs Manchester United Picks and Prediction
The Red Devils enter this clash as favorites, priced at +105 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Europa League odds, while the goal line is set at 2½.
As the record six-time Europa League winner, Sevilla deserves the benefit of the doubt despite experiencing its worst La Liga campaign in the 21st century. Despite Sevilla’s mini-revival under Mendilibar, we envisage Man United qualifying further in the competition. We expect a high-scoring affair, with the Red Devils having the necessary weapons to score at least two goals on their own.
