Real Betis turn their focus to their Europa League last 16 knockout second leg clash against English Premier League's Manchester United.

Real Betis turn their focus to their Europa League last 16 knockout second leg clash against English Premier League’s Manchester United.

The La Liga outfit suffered a 4-1 defeat in the first leg, making this an almost impossible situation to come back from.

Though without the away goal rule in effect, a 3-0 home win would force the game into extra time and eventually penalties to determine a winner.

Betis only have one win from their last seven home matches under their belt ahead of the visit of Man United.

Erik Ten Hag will be confident in the fact that Man United have never been eliminated from the last 16 of the Europa League when winning the first leg.

Betis have never progressed beyond the last-16 of the Europa League in its current format – losing to eventual winners Eintracht Frankfurt at this stage last season.

A near-perfect group stage for Betis saw them win five games and draw one in Group C – only dropping points in a 1-1 home stalemate against Roma.

Man United have gone unbeaten in their last four trips to Spain and even just a narrow loss would still see them qualify for the next round.

United’s last triumph in the Europa League came in 2017, when they beat Ajax 2-0 in the final.
