Europa League Quarter-Final Draw: Manchester United Discover Their Opponents

Manchester United face Sevilla in Europa League quarter-final
12:19, 17 Mar 2023

The quarter-final draw for the UEFA Europa League has been completed and now we have an idea of how the rest of the tournament will pan out. 

Erik ten Hag's Manchester United beat Real Betis home and away and the favourites to lift the entire thing will take on Sevilla. Marcus Rashford will hope to continue his sparkling goalscoring form since the World Cup and there is a real possibility that United finish the season with three trophies - as they prepare to take on Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-final this weekend. Europa League specialists Sevilla, who have won this competition every time they have reached the final eight, edged past Fenerbache despite losing the second leg. 

If United get past another Spanish side, they will face Juventus or Sporting CP in the final four. Sporting arguably pulled off the shock of the round as they dumped out Premier League leaders Arsenal on penalties. Ruben Amorim will now face Massimo Allegri for a place in the final four after the Italian giants got past Freiburg in the last 16. Italian clubs are doing well in Europe this year, and there's a possibility they could win both major trophies after a favourable Champions League draw for the other Serie A sides. 


Another Italian outfit, Jose Mourinho's Roma, the club that won the UEFA Conference League last summer are once again looking good in Europe. They didn't concede a goal against Real Sociedad to secure a 2-0 aggregate win in typical Mourinho fashion. The Italian teams, with three in the quarter-finals of the Champions League are proving the strength of Serie A this term and he would love to secure yet another European crown. The capital club will have to get past Feyenoord for their spot in the semi-finals.

The winner of that tie will face Union Saint-Gilloise or Bayer Leverkusen. The Belgian club, who thumped Union Berlin 6-3 over two legs now face the side currently 9th in the Bundesliga. They are owned by Brighton owner Tony Bloom, who is smashing it on all fronts - with a winner at Cheltenham this week too! This is their very first European adventure and there's a decent chance it could go on for a while longer. 

The path for Budapest has been set. Can Manchester United get there?
