Man Utd vs Sevilla: Ryan Giggs makes his Champions League prediction

Postado Março 13, 2018

Paul Pogba was conspicuous by his absence as Manchester United trained ahead of their crunch Champions League clash with Sevilla.

Sevilla appear to have highlighted David de Gea as their main obstacle to reaching the Champions League quarter-finals ahead of the second leg against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Marouane Fellaini is pushing for a recall if Pogba misses out after recovering from a knee injury but Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Daley Blind remain sidelined. No bomb was located but the security check certainly put the Manchester United squad in a state of worry and shock. Pep Guardiola's side walloped the Ukrainians 7-0 in the second game at the Allianz Arena, the largest margin following a scoreless opening game in Champions League history.

Mourinho believes they are still some way off the European elite, but believes from his experiences of winning the competition with Porto and Inter Milan, anything is possible if they make the last eight.

The first leg tie between the two teams finished in a goalless stalemate in Spain, and United will be confident that home advantage on Tuesday night will work in their favour. I don't know if he will be fit for tomorrow yet.' Mourinho told the media during a press conference.

"For the club and for everybody it's important to move forward in the Champions League and to feel that we are up there, alongside the best teams". Mourinho retaliated against Frank de Boer for the criticism made by the Dutchman, and absolutely destroyed the Dutchman.

Sevilla were eliminated at this stage previous year by Leicester City and they are the underdogs ahead of their first ever competitive match at Old Trafford.
