Ten Hag’s army won the right to the quarterfinals with a 5-1 aggregate victory over Real Betis in the round of 16. The Reds won 4-1 at Old Trafford in the first leg, before leaving Spain with a 1-0 win thanks to a Marcus Rashford strike.
The recent draw results brought the Red Devils to Sevilla. Man United have failed to win a single match in 3 matches against Sevilla. They have not met the team from southern Spain since August 2020, when the Red Devils lost 1-2 in the Europa League semi-final.
The first leg of the quarter-finals will take place at Old Trafford and the second leg in Spain. If they go ahead, Man United will face Juventus – the team with their former midfielder, Paul Pogba – or Sporting CP in the semi-finals.
But what makes MU fans pay the most attention is they met a spanish team again in this year’s tournamenthaving faced Real Sociedad in the group stage, Barcelona in the knockout stage and Real Betis in the round of 16.
One person wrote on social media: “Spanish team again?”
Another: “Are we playing in La Liga?”
Third person: “It’s not difficult, we have made Spain our home ground.”
