Sevilla coach Montella on Man Utd trip: Score and everything changes

13 March 2018

Manchester United left their mark in Sevilla after the opening leg of the Uefa Champions League game last month - and it was not positive, after a defensive performance which created few chances and attracted much criticism in Spain as well as in England.

That's according to ESPN FC pundit Craig Burley.

Liverpool entered Saturday's match against Manchester United as the Premier League's in-form side, having outperformed Manchester City in 2018 and looking likely to finish next best to them in the final table. Manchester United's most decorated player, Ryan Giggs, was sarcastically cheered off by supporters during the 2003 League Cup semi-final against Blackburn and his career was peppered with periods of mediocrity.

Montella's side head to Manchester with some injury problems, particularly in defence.

United manager Jose Mourinho revealed Pogba was a doubt for the last-16 second-leg encounter against Sevilla and the club-record signing was absent from Monday morning's training session.

Getting the teams and bracket out ASAP is a good idea, considering everyone's expecting the show's ratings to be garbage. Both of Cincinnati's college basketball powers, Xavier and Cincinnati, will be opening the NCAA Tournament in Nashville.

Asked whether the 24-year-old, who missed the win over Liverpool, could face Sevilla, the United manager said his participation was still up in the air.

As a outcome, Mourinho is reportedly planning another massive transfer window, and has apparently identified Juventus left back Alex Sandro as one of his key targets. "I am not sure if he will be available".

"I am as anxious as I was in the first leg, because United have a strong physical and technical level", Montella told reporters on Monday.

The Chile star has struggled to make his mark at Old Trafford yet though and there have been questions raised over his form under Mourinho.

Carrick has made three appearances in all competitions since returning from the heart complaint, but the skipper is still hoping to have a say in United's fortunes before calling time on his playing career.

Knowing they conquered just two points on the road during the Champions League's group stage, we might see a cautious Sevilla here. "Now I have only one name and that is Sevilla". "Now I have only one name and that is Sevilla, I know is very hard to go through".

"We are reaching an important time in the season, the key moment, and the team needs total concentration on the pitch to achieve our goals".

"I understood I'd be getting back fit that I wouldn't be playing as many games as probably I might have done, but that's something that I understood". He played the full 90 minutes in the first leg and will be a big loss for Sevilla. The French worldwide took part in some of the training session today and I think he'll be passed fit to start tomorrow. I think when you are in the last 16, it looks really, really far.

"In modern football you have to live day-by-day, week-by week and match-by-match and I can imagine that if we lose against Sevilla on Tuesday everyone will have forgotten what we did in the last couple of weeks".
