Match background Only this chapter

Manchester United FC are looking to finish the job against a Sevilla FC side who have never won a round of 16 tie in the UEFA Champions League.

• United, the Group A winners, are at this stage for the first time since 2013/14 and will need to improve on their stuttering recent home form against Spanish visitors as they seek to build on a goalless draw in Spain on 21 February.

• Their Liga opponents finished second in Group E and, with Vincenzo Montella having replaced Eduardo Berizzo as coach in December, will now look to make it through to the quarter-finals at the fourth attempt.

Match background

Manchester United
• This is the English club's tenth round of 16 tie (W6 L3), and their first since facing Olympiacos FC in 2013/14 (0-2 away, 3-0 home). Having lost their first two last-16 contests, United have won all but one of the most recent seven.

• United's record in two-legged ties against Spanish clubs is W6 L7.

Highlights: Sevilla 0-0 Manchester United

• This is United's ninth European match this term and their third against Spanish opposition, their campaign having started with a 2-1 loss to Real Madrid CF in the UEFA Super Cup in Skopje on 8 August. That ended United's 11-game unbeaten run (W8 D3) since a 2-1 reversal at Fenerbahçe SK on matchday four of last season's UEFA Europa League. The defeat in Istanbul had been their fifth in nine European fixtures.

• The Red Devils won all but one of their six Group A games; the sole blemish was their 1-0 matchday five reverse at FC Basel 1893. At home they beat Basel 3-0, SL Benfica 2-0 and PFC CSKA Moskva 2-1

• Those losses to Madrid and Basel are United's only reverses in their last 19 European matches, home and away (W13 D4). The Basel loss ended a seven-game unbeaten European away record (W5 D2) since that setback at Fenerbahçe.

• José Mourinho's side got the better of Spanish opposition in last season's UEFA Europa League semi-finals, winning 1-0 at RC Celta de Vigo in the first leg thanks to a Marcus Rashford free-kick. They went through 2-1 on aggregate with a 1-1 home draw, Marouane Fellaini scoring for United.

• That UEFA Super Cup defeat by Madrid and the first-leg draw means United have now won two of their last 12 matches against Spanish clubs, with five draws and five defeats in that time. The Red Devils have also won five of their last 23 matches with Liga opposition (D10 L8).

• United have played 51 times against Liga clubs, with the record W13 D21 L17. At home their record is W9 D10 L4, although they have lost two of the last four and won only one of the last six.

• United have contested three finals with Spanish sides – all against FC Barcelona. They were 2-1 winners in the 1990/91 European Cup Winners' Cup final in Rotterdam but lost 2-0 in 2008/09 in Rome and 3-1 in London in 2010/11, both in the UEFA Champions League.

• Mourinho's charges completed a clean sweep of European trophies for the club with victory in last season's UEFA Europa League. The win against AFC Ajax in Stockholm added to their European Cup triumphs in 1968, 1999 and 2008 and their 1991 European Cup Winners' Cup success.

• United have won 11 of the 15 UEFA competition ties in which they recorded a first-leg away draw, including the last two, most recently against RSC Anderlecht in last season's UEFA Europa League quarter-final (1-1 away, 2-1 home aet).

• That total includes nine ties where the first, away, leg finished 0-0; United's aggregate record in that instance is W6 L3 with wins in the last three contests, most recently against Olympique de Marseille in the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League round of 16 (2-1 home).

• United's record in three UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L2:
6-5 v Chelsea FC, 2007/08 UEFA Champions League final
3-4 v FC Torpedo Moskva, 1992/93 UEFA Cup first round
4-5 v Videoton FC, 1984/85 UEFA Cup quarter-finals

• The Spanish side have lost all three of their previous UEFA Champions League round of 16 ties. In 2007/08 they were beaten 3-2 on penalties by Fenerbahçe SK after a 5-5 aggregate draw (2-3 away, 3-2 home); two years later they lost 3-2 over two legs against PFC CSKA Moskva (1-1 away, 1-2 home) and they went down 3-2 to Leicester City FC 12 months ago (2-1 home, 0-2 away).

• The Spanish side's record in away round of 16 games is therefore D1 L2.

• They did beat Denmark's AGF Aarhus 4-0 at home and 2-0 away in the 1957/58 European Champion Clubs' Cup last 16.

• Sevilla have never won in six trips to England (D3 L3), although on their most recent visit they emerged with a 2-2 draw from their trip to Liverpool FC on matchday one this season.

• The Andalusian club did not win away in Group E, and endured their heaviest UEFA Champions League defeat in losing 5-1 at Spartak on matchday three. They concluded with a 1-1 draw at NK Maribor to secure second place in the section.

Manchester United v Spanish opposition: Classic goals featuring Messi, Ronaldo & Beckham

• Sevilla have lost only two of their last 11 away matches in UEFA competition (W3 D6): at Spartak and that 2-0 reverse at Leicester in last season's round of 16 second leg, which completed a 3-2 aggregate loss.

• Their record in two-legged knockout ties against Premier League sides is W1 L1. Aside from last season's defeat by Leicester, they beat Tottenham Hotspur FC 4-3 on aggregate in the quarter-finals of their victorious 2006/07 UEFA Cup campaign (2-1 home, 2-2 away).

• Sevilla have won three of the six UEFA competition ties in which they drew the home first leg, most recently against FC Shakhtar Donetsk in the 2006/07 UEFA Cup round of 16 (2-2 home, 3-2 away aet); they went on to lift the trophy.

• When drawing 0-0 at home first time out, Sevilla have won two and lost one of their three ties, the most recent of which came against 1. FSV Mainz 05 in the 2005/06 UEFA Cup first round (2-0 away); once more the Spanish side went on to take the trophy.

• Sevilla's penalty shoot-out record in UEFA competition is W5 L1:
5-4 v Athletic Club, 2015/16 UEFA Europa League quarter-finals
4-2 v SL Benfica, 2013/14 UEFA Europa League final
4-3 v Real Betis Balompié, 2013/14 UEFA Europa League round of 16
2-3 v Fenerbahçe SK, 2007/08 UEFA Champions League round of 16
3-1 v RCD Espanyol, 2006/07 UEFA Cup final
4-3 v PAOK FC, 1990/91 UEFA Cup first round

UEFA Champions League squad changes
In: Alexis Sánchez
Out: Henrikh Mkhitaryan, James Wilson

• Jesse Lingard will incur a suspension with his next booking.

• United have won 17 of their 20 home games in all competitions this season, drawing two and losing only to Manchester City FC (1-2) in the Premier League on 10 December. The Red Devils have scored in 19 games at Old Trafford, drawing a blank only against Southampton FC on 30 December (0-0).

• Mourinho's side were staring at a third successive away Premier League defeat – having lost 2-0 at Tottenham Hotspur FC on 31 January and 1-0 at Newcastle United FC on 11 February – when they went 2-0 down at Crystal Palace FC on 5 March. However, goals from Chris Smalling, Romelu Lukaku and – in added time – Nemanja Matić extended United's unbeaten run to four games in all competitions.

• That became five (W4 D1) on Saturday when two Marcus Rashford goals ensured a 2-1 defeat of Liverpool FC at Old Trafford.

• The Palace game was the first time since December 2013 that United had come from 2-0 down to win in the Premier League – and the first time a Mourinho side had managed it in the competition (D2 L19).

• Lukaku scored seven goals in his first seven Premier League appearances this season, but managed only four in the next 14 prior to the first leg at Sevilla; he scored in the next two league games.

• Mourinho signed a new contract, running until 2020, in January. Juan Mata's deal has been extended until summer 2019.

• Bailly had been out since 5 November due to an ankle injury but returned as a late substitute on 17 February; he also came on in the 2-1 home win against Chelsea FC eight days later, and started (and scored an own goal) against Liverpool.

• Marouane Fellaini played for the first time since picking up a knee injury on 31 January as a substitute for Rashford on Saturday.

• Ander Herrera, who had been out since 31 January with a muscle problem, has not played since suffering a similar injury in the first leg with Sevilla. Zlatan Ibrahimović (out since 26 December, knee) and Daley Blind (17 January, ankle) have also been sidelined.

• Phil Jones (out since 11 February) and Anthony Martial (out since 25 February) are both carrying knocks.

• Sergio Escudero, Éver Banega and Gabriel Mercado are all a booking away from a ban.

• Sevilla have lost only one of their last six away games, winning four. They have failed to score in only five of their 22 away matches in all competitions this season, but have kept only six clean sheets.

• The Andalusian club have lost two of their last eight games, home and away, in all competitions – they went down 2-0 at home to Valencia CF on Saturday – winning five.

• Sevilla parted company with coach Eduardo Berizzo on 22 December, appointing Vincenzo Montella as his replacement eight days later. The Italian signed an 18-month contract.

• Sevilla will play Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final at the Estadio Metropolitano, home of Atlético Madrid, on 21 April.

• Up to and including matchday six, Wissam Ben Yedder had scored 13 goals in 18 appearances in all competitions this season; in the 15 games since he has managed four.

• Jesús Navas (out since 25 February) and Lionel Carole, who has not played since 14 January, both have calf complaints.

Head coach Only this chapter

José Mourinho

Date of birth: 26 January 1963
Nationality: Portuguese
Coaching career: SL Benfica, UD Leiria, FC Porto, Chelsea FC (twice), FC Internazionale Milano, Real Madrid CF, Manchester United FC

• A former teacher, Mourinho had spells working at Sporting Clube de Portugal, Porto and FC Barcelona as a coaching assistant in the 1990s.

• As coach, had a nine-game stay at Benfica and a highly successful tenure at Leiria before really making his mark after arriving at Porto in January 2002. In his first full season, 2002/03, Porto won the UEFA Cup and a domestic double. The next year they retained their league title and claimed the UEFA Champions League with a 3-0 defeat of AS Monaco FC in Gelsenkirchen.

• Joined Chelsea in 2004 and led the club to the League Cup and their first league championship for 50 years in his first season. Followed up with the league title again in 2006, and both the League Cup and FA Cup in 2007 but left the club that September.

• Joined Inter in June 2008 and in his first campaign retained the Scudetto, a feat the Nerazzurri repeated in 2009/10 when they also added the Coppa Italia and the UEFA Champions League title, their first European crown since 1965.

• Victory at the Santiago Bernabéu was Mourinho's last act as Inter coach before he joined Madrid. His first season featured the club's first Copa del Rey victory in 18 years and his second brought the Liga title; also led Madrid to three successive UEFA Champions League semi-finals before returning to Chelsea at the start of June 2013.

• Won a third Premier League title with the London club in 2015, also adding the English League Cup. Left in December 2015 and appointed Manchester United manager the following summer, leading the club to the League Cup and the UEFA Europa League in his first season in charge.


Vincenzo Montella

Date of birth: 18 June 1974
Nationality: Italian
Playing career: Empoli FC, Genoa CFC, UC Sampdoria (twice), AS Roma, Fulham FC (loan)
Coaching career: AS Roma (caretaker), Calcio Catania, ACF Fiorentina, UC Sampdoria, AC Milan, Sevilla FC

• A quick and opportunistic striker, Montella played for Roma from 1999 to 2009, scoring 84 goals in 192 Serie A games and winning the 2001 Scudetto and the 2007 Coppa Italia. He managed three goals in 20 caps for Italy, appearing in the UEFA EURO 2000 final and at the 2002 FIFA World Cup.

• Made his name at Empoli, scoring 17 league goals in the 1994/95 Serie C1 campaign. Moved to Genoa, scoring 21 Serie B goals before joining city rivals Sampdoria in 1996. In three years in Serie A with the Blucerchiati, Montella registered 54 goals to earn a switch to Roma.

• After 18 goals during his first season in the Italian capital, he fell behind Gabriel Batistuta and Marco Delvecchio in Fabio Capello's plans. However the Aeroplanino – 'The Little Airplane' in reference to his small stature and trademark goal celebration – finished the season strongly, his 13 goals instrumental as the Giallorossi won their third Scudetto, the first since 1983.

• With the exception of two loan spells at Fulham and Sampdoria, Montella continued to play for Roma until his retirement in 2009. Promptly moved into coaching within Roma's youth system, taking charge of the Under-15 side before temporarily stepping up to the first team in February 2011 following Claudio Ranieri's resignation.

• Spent 2011/12 in charge of Catania before three years at Fiorentina, whom he took to the 2014 Coppa Italia final and the semi-finals of the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League. Led Sampdoria between November 2015 and his departure for Milan in June 2016; won the Italian Super Cup that December but dismissed in November 2017 after a slow start to that season. Resurfaced in Spain with Sevilla, succeeding Eduardo Berizzo on 28 December 2017.

Competition facts Only this chapter

UEFA Champions League knockout stage: Did you know?

• Teams have overturned a first-leg deficit to go through 41 times, including AS Roma in this season's round of 16. Only twice – AFC Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos FC in the 1995/96 semi-finals and FC Internazionale Milano's victory against FC Bayern München in the 2010/11 round of 16 – has a side progressed after a home first-leg loss.

• The biggest losing margin a side has overhauled was achieved by FC Barcelona against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2016/17 last 16, when they lost 4-0 away but progressed thanks to a 6-1 home success. That eclipsed the previous record held by RC Deportivo La Coruña in the 2003/04 quarter-finals, when they went down 4-1 at AC Milan but won 4-0 at home.

• Twenty-nine ties have been decided on away goals, including ten where the triumphant team lost the first leg.

• In all, 28 ties have required extra time. Twelve have been settled by extra time alone: five round of 16 encounters, five quarter-finals including Real Madrid CF-FC Bayern München in 2016/17, the 2007/08 semi-final between Chelsea and Liverpool FC, and the 2013/14 final.

• Sixteen ties have gone to penalties, including seven finals – 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016. The first two-legged tie decided on spot kicks was PSV Eindhoven's 4-2 victory over Olympique Lyonnais on 13 April 2005 after a 2-2 aggregate draw, still the only quarter-final to go to penalties.

• The 2015/16 round of 16 tie between Club Atlético de Madrid and PSV was the first to finish goalless after two legs. Thirteen have finished 1-0 on aggregate, most recently Real Madrid CF's defeat of Manchester City FC in the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Liverpool FC (versus FC Porto) and Bayern (versus Beşiktaş JK) both won 5-0 in the 2017/18 round of 16, equalling the knockout phase record for the biggest first-leg lead – Real Madrid's 6-1 victory at FC Schalke 04 in 2013/14 and Bayern's 5-0 success at Sporting Clube de Portugal in 2008/09, both also in the round of 16. Bayern eventually beat Sporting 12-1 after a 7-1 stroll in the home second leg; that tie also featured more goals (13) over its two legs than any UEFA Champions League knockout tie.

• Bayern hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match having beaten both FC Basel 1893 (2011/12) and FC Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to lift the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburger SV 1983), José Mourinho (FC Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) have all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Only two sides have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome). Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in FC Barcelona's 7-1 triumph against Bayer 04 Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat reproduced by FC Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at FC BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Eleven more players, also including Messi, have scored four times in a game, most recently Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid on matchday six in 2015/16.

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, eclipsing his own mark of nine goals in 2013/14, which Luiz Adriano matched in 2014/15 and Ronaldo himself equalled in 2017/18. Lionel Messi got ten goals in 2016/17; Zlatan Ibrahimović (2013/14), Ruud van Nistelrooy (2004/05), Filippo Inzaghi and Hernán Crespo (both 2002/03) managed eight.

• Messi's hat-trick against Manchester City FC on matchday three of the 2016/17 competition was his seventh in the competition, a record Ronaldo matched against Club Atlético de Madrid in the 2016/17 semi-finals.

• SS Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta is the oldest player to compete at this level, having been aged 43 years and 252 days when he figured against Madrid on matchday six of the 2007/08 edition.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years and 59 days, in AS Roma's 1-1 draw at PFC CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years and 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• Celestine Babayaro is the youngest player to have appeared – he was 16 years and 87 days when he started for RSC Anderlecht against FC Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994. He was sent off in the 37th minute.

• Peter Ofori-Quaye is the youngest player to have scored, aged 17 years and 195 days, in Olympiacos FC's 5-1 reverse at Rosenborg BK on 1 October 1997.
