Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella has expressed confidence that his side can edge out Manchester United in Tuesday night’s second-leg round of 16 UEFA Champions League clash at Old Trafford.
In the first leg at the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan last month, Sevilla were forced to a 0-0 draw by United.
A scoring draw will be enough to see Sevilla qualify for the quarter-finals for the very first time.
Looking ahead to the game, Montella stated that reaching the last eight would be a very big achievement for his side.
“This is a massive opportunity for us and important for the history of the club,” Montella told football-espana.net.
“We will be giving everything to try and achieve progression, but we are under no illusions that we will have to suffer for 90 minutes or more.
“It’s a very special occasion for Sevilla, a really important game and we dream of a place in the quarter finals, it’s a big competition and to reach that stage would be momentous for us.
“We have confidence in our own ability and we believe this will be an evenly contested match.”Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
