Tip Manchester United - Sevilla
Manchester United had a good home win over Liverpool at the weekend and now continue their bid to join Jurgen Klopp's side in the last eight of the Champions League. United went to Spain for the first leg and came back from Sevilla with a goalless draw. It was hardly the most exciting performance but it puts the pressure on their opponents for this second leg. Unless you are Manchester City, no side has beaten United at Old Trafford since Southampton won there on January 23, 2016, In the Champions League, United are unbeaten in their last 12 home games in the Champions League since a defeat by Real Madrid in 2013, Their win over Liverpool stretched their unbeaten run to five games and the return to scoring form of Marcus Rashford will have boosted them. Sevilla are fifth in La Liga but 11 points adrift of the Champions League places. They might have been better off going into the Europa League if they fancy being in the Champions League next season. Sevilla really needed to get a first leg lead because their away record doesn't instil a great deal of confidence in them progressing. In La Liga, they have won six on the road but lost eight and their Champions League away record reads two wins in the last 14 including a 5-1 thrashing this season at Spartak Moscow where United won 4-1. A bet on a home win looks the obvious bet here if you want a winner.
Key points Manchester United - Sevilla

They continue to be strong at home, had a good win at the weekend and take on a Sevilla side who struggle away from home. Go for a United home win.
