UEFA Europa League Round 16: Manchester United Vs Real Betis - Match Preview And Prediction 16/03/2023

Manchester United completely dominated the first leg, with 25 shots and four goals from Rashford, Antony, Fernandes, and Weghorst securing a strong victory at home. Real Betis have only lost one of their last six games but were humiliated by Man Utd before drawing with Villarreal.

Betis is currently fifth in La Liga, three points away from Champions League qualification. While Betis has avoided defeat in seven of their last eight Europa League home games, it seems unlikely they will be able to overturn the 4-1 deficit against Man Utd.

Manchester United drew 0-0 with Southampton on Sunday, with Casemiro being sent off in the first half. They have only lost one of their last 14 games in all competitions, with 10 wins in that time. Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag’s team has only lost two of their last 25 matches, making them one of Europe’s most feared sides.

Man Utd's Donny van de Beek, Christian Eriksen, Anthony Martial, and Alejandro Garnacho are all injured. Victor Lindelof and Marcel Sabitzer are also doubts for the second leg.

Although Manchester United could view their draw with Southampton as a missed opportunity, they remain confident of booking their place in the quarter-finals after avoiding defeat in each of their last eight Europa League games.

PREDICTION: The Red Devils are expected to advance to the last eight over Real Betis.
