ManUnited condemned to victory
In the second leg of the Champions League, Manchester United hosts Seville FC. At the same time, the local AS meets Schachtar Donetsk in Rome.
On Tuesday, the second leg of the UEFA Champions League’s second quarter-finals will begin with Manchester United, Seville FC, AS Rome and Schachtar Donezk.
After a goalless and uneventful first leg, Manchester United want to book their ticket for the quarter-finals at home in Old Trafford against FC Sevilla (from 8.45 pm at the LIVETICKER).
The Red Devils mastered the dress rehearsal this weekend by beating arch-rival FC Liverpool. It is now time to take this momentum into the Champions League and enter the quarter-finals for the first time since the 2013/2014 season.
The team of coach Jose Mourinho had to accept a defeat in the current competition, and so far there have only been victories in front of the home crowd. Seville should be warned.
The Spaniards, for their part, are the draw kings of the Champions League. So far, there have been four draws in seven games. In Manchester, thanks to the away goal rule, this would also mean progress. However, a prerequisite for this is an own goal from the Andalusians.
Winning the Champions League would probably be the only way for Seville to play in the top division next season. After losing to rival Valencia on the weekend, the gap to fourth place in the standings is already eleven points.
In the parallel game AS Rome will receive the Ukrainian representative Schachtar Donetsk (from 8.45 pm in the LIVETICKER).
In the first leg three weeks ago, Donezk won 2-1, a surprising but deserved victory for many. The Romans had taken the lead shortly before the break through a gate of Cengiz Ünder, but they completely closed the second passage.
After Facundo Ferreyra’s equaliser, Fred turned the game around in favour of the hosts. His free-kick struck unstoppably from the bottom of the crossbar in Keeper Alisson’s goal.
The Roma are therefore condemned to victory, but must not take too great a risk. An early conceding goal would almost be synonymous with the final knockout.
