The Red Devils will welcome Sevilla to Old Trafford in a tie that process a lot of excitement on Thursday.

Manchester United will host Sevilla in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final clash on Thursday at Old Trafford. The Red Devils will look to take a step closer to the semi-finals when they take on their fourth Spanish opponents in the ongoing campaign.

Erik ten Hag's side progressed to the knockout stages after finishing second in their group behind Real Sociedad and then defeating Barcelona and Real Betis in the first couple of phases of the knockout round. While they have been a tad inconsistent in recent outings, United still remain among the favorites to secure the trophy this season.

The Premier League giants will go into the clash with Sevilla on the back of a 2-0 win over Everton in the Premier League. Prior to that, they bounced back from the disappointment against Newcastle United by beating Brentford 1-0 at home. The Old Trafford outfit still remain one of the favourites to finish in the top four in the Premier League this season and are still active in the FA Cup, preparing to take on Brighton & Hove Albion in the semi-finals of the competition on April 23.

For Sevilla, this season has been far from what they might have envisaged. The Rojiblancos have had a disappointing domestic campaign, and currently sit in 13th position in the La Liga table. 

The Andalusian giants progressed to the quarter-finals after beating PSV Eindhoven and Fenerbahce in the knockout rounds. Despite struggling to impress for much of the campaign, Sevilla must be taken extremely seriously in this tournament, having won the Europa League on six occasions, which is a competition record.

With qualification to Europe via La Liga being a far cry, the Roman Sanchez Pizjuan outfit must repeat the feat of winning the Europa League in order to feature in the Champions League during the 2023-24 campaign. They have finished fourth in each of their last three La Liga campaigns, but that will not be the case this term.

Thursday's first leg will presenrt Sevilla with the opportunity to return to winning ways after drawing 2-2 with Celta Vigo in La Liga last Friday. While they will go into the clash with United as the underdogs, they will be determined to upset the Red Devils and continue their quest for a record seventh Europa League title.
