Here are the latest match odds for Sevilla vs Manchester United.
Sevilla vs Manchester United betting preview
The stage is set and the stakes are sky-high as Manchester United and Sevilla clash for a place in the final four of the Europa League. The Red Devils looked to have had this done and dusted courtesy of Marcel Sabitzer's brace in the opening 25 minutes at Old Trafford.
But disaster struck for Erik ten Hag's side in the closing stages when conceding two own goals in the 84th and 92nd minutes to leave the tie delicately poised at 2-2 heading to the reverse fixture in Spain.
The Red Devils bounced back from their midweek disappointment with a routine 2-0 win against Nottingham Forest. The result leaves them third in the Premier League, comfortably heading for Champions League qualification with eight matches remaining.
The more impressive aspect of Sunday's victory was their strength in depth and ability to keep a clean sheet without Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane at the back. They were also without Tyrell Malacia and Sabitzer, who have been added to United's lengthening injury list.
The visitors are 11/10 to win inside 90 minutes, and that's understandable given they've won five and drawn two of their last seven UEFA contests against Spanish opposition away from home.
This competition represents Sevilla's only chance of European qualification next season given their nightmare domestic campaign. They are 13th in LaLiga and only eight points clear of the relegation zone.
But they are now showing their best form of the campaign with only Barcelona and Atletico Madrid picking up more points over the last five matches. They are undefeated in their last four matches, scoring twice in each of those.

Sevilla vs Manchester United best bets
Sevilla to win
Manchester United have enjoyed an excellent record against Spanish opposition in recent years, but beating Sevilla on their own patch in this competition is a tough ask.
The hosts have won the tournament SIX times since 2006 and simply have what it takes in knockout ties. They have also never lost against Manchester United in major European competition in four previous meetings (W2 D2).
Sevilla have won 23 of their last 26 home matches in the Europa League, and meet a United who should be running on fumes after playing five matches in 15 days. They may also have one eye on Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Brighton at Wembley.

Goalless at the break
Expect an extremely cagey opening 45 minutes in this clash. As mentioned, the stakes are high and neither side will want to blink first.
The Red Devils have picked up the handy knack of keeping things tight in the opening half having now gone eight-consecutive games without conceding a first-half goal.
It's a similar story for Sevilla, who have four first-half clean sheets in their last five clashes, Manchester United being the exception.
A 0-0 draw at half-time at 2/1 with bet365
Over 5.5 cards dished out looks a banker at 10/11 with bet365.
The first clash produced a whopping eight bookings with Sevilla receiving five and Manchester United getting three.
In fact, all of Sevilla's last five clashes have produced 6+ bookings, and the second leg of a high-stakes quarter-final should see that repeated.
Artur Soares Dias is the man in charge of this contest, and he's not exactly shy of getting his cards out. The Portuguese referee has shown 137 cards in 25 games, and has produced exactly eight in his last three games.
