Manchester United meet Sevilla in Europa League quarters | Football News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Manchester United will go up against a record six-time winners Sevilla in the Europa League quarters while Juventus face Sporting for a place in last the last four.
In the draw, which was held in Nyon on Friday, Roma were drawn with Feyenoord in a repeat of last season’s Europa Conference League final while Bayer Leverkusen were pitted against Union Saint-Gilloise.
United, who beat Real Betis in both legs of their last 16 tie, will travel to Spain once again after Sevilla — who last won the competition in 2020 — qualified despite losing the second leg to Fenerbahce.

The Spanish side have never lost to United in three meetings, last beating them in the semi-finals in 2020.
United manager Eric ten Hag highlighted Sevilla’s record in the competition but said his immediate focus was on domestic fixtures.
“It is going to be tough, they are very experienced in the Europa League, won it so many times. I don’t know the team in detail but for me the most important is football and I don’t look forward to Sevilla,” he said.
“First we have the international break and then three Premier League games, so there is much time to focus on that
“Definitely all the opponents that are coming to this stage of the Europa League are strong and you have to play your best football if you want to go through.”
Juve, who dropped out of the Champions League after finishing third in their group, will look to win the competition after their top-four hopes in Serie A were all but dashed with a 15-point deduction over their transfer dealings.
The Turin-based side are seventh in Serie A, 10 points behind fourth-placed AC Milan. Winning the Europa League guarantees a spot in the Champions League next season.
