Europa League quarter-final draw: Man Utd face Sevilla, Juventus take on Sporting

The Europa League draw has been completed as Manchester United and Juventus learnt their opponents in the quarter-finals. 

United will face Sevilla in the last eight after they beat Real Betis in the Round of 16 tie on a 5-1 aggregate. 

The Red Devils got themselves into a dominating position after they won the home leg by an emphatic 4-1 score, with Marcus Rashford, Antony, Bruno Fernandes and Wout Weghorst all on target in the Old Trafford encounter. 

Manuel Pellegrini’s side tried to make a comeback at the Estadio Benito Villamarin but they failed to breach United’s defences. 

Rashford then bagged the winner early in the second-half as the Premier League giants cruised into the quarter-finals. 

United have the distinction of winning the 2017 Europa League where they beat Ajax in the final. They also reached the final of the competition’s 2021 edition but ultimately lost the game on penalties to Villarreal. 

Meanwhile, Juventus have been drawn with Sporting Lisbon in the quarter-finals.

Max Allegri’s side comfortably won 2-0 against Freiburg on Thursday at the Europa-Park Stadion, thus winning the last 16 tie on a 3-0 aggregate. 

Dusan Vlahovic broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time before Federico Chiesa added a late second to lead Juve into the quarter-finals where they will meet Sporting Lisbon. 

Ruben Amorim’s side shocked Arsenal yesterday by prevailing in the penalty shootout at the Emirates Stadium, thus winning the round of 16 tie and knocking the Gunners out of the competition. 

Elsewhere, AS Roma will meet Dutch outfit Feyenoord in the last eight of the competition after they ousted Real Sociedad in the previous round. 

Jose Mourinho’s side held the White and Blues to a goalless draw at the Reale Arena after winning the first-leg 2-0.
