They may face Inter Milan or Shaktar Donetsk who are set to play the Semi Finals of the competition. Manchester United captain Harry Maguire after the match said ” the best team lost “.

“They did not create many chances if we’re being honest, its the ball in the box and they worked it well down the right”, he told BT Sports after the game.

The attacking third of United did work hard and were creating problems for the opposition defence but after weathering the storm of United attacks the Sevilla team hit them when they lost their concentration and the simple tap in by substitute luke De Jong was the match winner for the Spanish side. This season will be third in the row for Red Devils in which they have not won any major trophies.

The United boss Ole said after the game, “It’s one of them if you take chances you win comfortably — its not always the case in football”.

“When we get the ball down and create chances, it’s scintillating at times. The keeper had a fantastic game. It’s disappointing we didn’t score because we’ve got players with that quality. We are working to improve ourselves. We’ve had spell of injuries too this season but we always looked to improve.”

“Its not about the marquee signings, its about quality the right personality that fits in the group”.
