Europa League winner odds: United handed tricky draw

Manchester United are 27/20 favourites in bwin’s Europa League winner odds after being drawn to face Sevilla in the quarter-finals.

The Red Devils have already faced three Spanish teams in this tournament and must now find a way past the six-time victors.

Erik ten Hag’s side met Real Sociedad in the group stage before beating Barcelona in the play-off round and seeing off Real Betis – also based in Seville – in the last 16.

“Back to Seville and they have a very good record, we have to be aware of it,” commented Ten Hag.

“It is going to be tough because they are really experienced in the Europa League, they won it so many times.

“I don’t know the team in detail, so I have to focus on that. I think all the opponents coming to this stage of the Europa League, they are strong.

“You have to play your best football if you want to come through and it’s definitely the case if you face Sevilla.”

United will hope to secure a first-leg advantage at Old Trafford on April 13, before travelling to Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium a week later.

Sevilla, who are 12/1 to go all the way, have claimed convincing home victories over PSV and Fenerbahce in previous rounds, before just holding on in away defeats.

Juve heading to Portugal

The winner of that tie will face a semi-final against either Juventus or Sporting, who beat Arsenal on penalties to reach this stage.

Juve have shown their class by comfortably accounting for Nantes and Freiburg since dropping down from the Champions League and are 5/1 second favourites in bwin’s Europa League winner odds.

Sporting made short work of Midtjylland before a dramatic triumph over the Gunners and can be backed at 9/1.

After a 2-2 draw in Lisbon, Granit Xhaka had Arsenal ahead but Pedro Goncalves levelled with a stunning 49-yard effort.

Gabriel Martinelli later saw his spot-kick saved as a closely-fought tie was settled by a penalty shootout.

Sporting coach Ruben Amorim said: “The result is the only thing that matters but you have to applaud the way my players played – how they stood up after conceding the first goal, which we didn’t deserve.”

On the other side of the draw, Feyenoord face Roma in a repeat of last season’s Europa Conference League final and Bayer Leverkusen take on Belgium’s Union Saint-Gilloise.

Roma are 5/1 to give Jose Mourinho yet another European triumph, with Leverkusen 8/1, Feyenoord 14/1 and USG 25/1.

The final will be played at Puskas Arena in Budapest on May 31.
