Manchester United are ready to be back in the European competitions as they will face Real Betis tonight in the Europa League. Real Betis will host the English giant tonight to play the 2nd leg at Benito Villamarin. However, Manchester United are in the comfort zone as they won the 1st leg by a 4-1 margin. Therefore, Real Betis must win tonight’s clash by a minimum of four goals margin to qualify for the quarterfinals.

Stats and Facts

Real Betis haven’t played many games against the English sides in European competitions. The last time they played against an English team was Chelsea FC in 2005, when they defeated the Blues in the UEFA Champions League. Aside from that, Real Betis only progressed from one of their previous six major European ties when they lost the first leg. 

Team News

Manchester United midfield general Casemiro was booked a straight red card in the match against Southampton, which sees him a four-match domestic ban. However, this suspension doesn’t affect him in European competitions, so he is eligible to play tonight.

But there are concerns too. Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes got yellow cards in their previous games in the Europa League. Therefore, if one of them receives a yellow card tonight, they will face a one-game suspension in the next match.

But Erik Ten Hag doesn’t want to think about it. He confirmed that these two will start tonight. Ten Hag said, “We play both because it’s a very good opponent. Last week we had a good result, but we have to go again and you need your best players. We need a result, we need a win, so then we need our best team.”

However, Alejandro Garnacho and Antony will miss the match due to injuries. But Marcel Sabitzer is back and ready to play tonight. As for Real Betis, they will miss Nabil Fekir because of an injury, and Luiz Filipe is in doubt ahead of the match.

Our Prediction: Man United 2-1 Real Betis

Although Manchester United will miss several players, they are still strong enough to win this match. At the same time, Real Betis will have the home advantage, which will help them to score.
