Man Utd face Sevilla, Juve meet Sporting in Europa League quarter

NYON, Switzerland, March 17 (Reuters) – Manchester United meet record six-time Europa League winners Sevilla in the quarter-finals, while Juventus take on Sporting after Friday’s draw in Nyon.

United, who have beaten Real Betis in both of their last 16 games, will travel to Spain again after Sevilla – who last won the competition in 2020 – qualified despite losing the second leg to Fenerbahce.

Manchester United manager Eric ten Hag highlighted Sevilla’s record in the competition but said his immediate focus is on domestic games.

“It’s going to be tough, they’re very experienced in the Europa League, they’ve won so many times. I don’t know the team in detail but for me football is the most important thing and I’m not looking forward to Sevilla.” ” he said.

“First we have the international break and then three Premier League games so there is a lot of time to focus on that

“Anyway, all the opponents who come to this stage of the Europa League are strong and you have to play your best football if you want to progress.”

Juve, who were eliminated from the Champions League after finishing third in their group, will be looking to win the competition after all but ending their top-four Serie A hopes with a 15-point deduction on their transfer deals were made.

Turin are seventh in Serie A, 10 points behind fourth-placed AC Milan. Winning the Europa League guarantees a place in the Champions League next season.
