Manchester United will face Sevilla in the round of 16 clash in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday. United will be determined to win the match to qualify for the next round in the biggest event of Europe. In the previous match, Romelu Lukaku’s brace have given Manchester United an important win against Huddersfield Town in the 5th round of match of FA Cup. Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian Striker was not amongst goals and these two goals against Huddersfield Town will bring his confidence back ahead of the important game against the La Liga side Sevilla on Wednesday in the round of 16 clash of the UEFA Champions League.
Manchester United were out of the contention from the Carabao Cup after losing against the Championship side Bristol City in the third round. It had created a huge disappointment among the fans of the Red Devils as they could not remain to be hopeful for their side. The Red Devils are currently at second position in the League Table in the Premier League and they have some really important matches coming into their way. They will face Sevilla next in the UEFA Champions League in the round of 16 of the biggest event of Europe on Wednesday and after that the Red Devils will face Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.
By analysing the performance of Manchester United this season so far we find that the Red Devils are lacking a star player upfront who can change the course of the match from anywhere any day. So the main focus of the Red Devils will be now on signing a star player in the next summer transfer window. But Jose Mourinho will surely try to win the match against Sevilla to qualify for the next round.
