Sevilla buzzing after eliminating Man United

Trophy looks out of reach

Sevilla's players celebrate their win at Espanyol with coach Vicenzo Montella
1 of 1

Manager
Vincenzo Montella.

How they qualified
No team made the knockout stages having conceded more than Sevilla, who shipped five away to Spartak Moscow in a total of 15. However, that was the only loss and their two draws with Liverpool give them a decent form line for the Manchester United tie. 

Results and fixtures

La Liga standings

Transfer action
Guilherme Arana, Miguel Layun, Roque Mesa and Sandro Ramirez arrived on loan but Layun is cup-tied in the Champions League. 

Last-16 first leg 
Sevilla 0 Man Utd 0
The tie was very much in the balance after a goalless draw in Spain but United had goalie David De Gea to thank for a string of fine saves.

Last-16 second leg 
Man Utd 1 Sevilla 2 
United looked lethargic from the start and could not recover from two quickfire second-half goals from Wissam Ben Yedder. Sevilla appear  solid but appear one of the weakest teams remaining.  

Quarter-final first leg 
Sevilla 1 Bayern Munich 2 
Pablo Sarabia gave the La Liga side a first-half lead, but an own goal and a strike from Thiago Alcantara swung the game back in favour of the Germans and they take a lead back to Munich.

Prospects
They are almost certainly not good enough to go all the way in the Champions League but can be awkward opponents.
