UEFA Europa League: Where to watch Real Betis vs Manchester United live on March 16, 2023

March 15, 2023 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Manchester United will be looking to seal their place in the Europa League quarterfinals when they take on Real Betis in Thursday's away encounter.

Real Betis will attempt to do the unthinkable and overturn a three-goal deficit against Manchester United in their Europa League last-16 tie. The Red Devils head to Spain in a very comfortable position after a fine second-half display at Old Trafford put them within touching distance of a spot in the quarter-finals.

In the history of the Europa League, only once has such a three-goal advantage been overturned in the knockout stage and Betis will look to draw inspiration from this ahead of the test. A week ago, Manuel Pellegrini's side were put to the sword at Old Trafford, suffering a 4-1 defeat against Erik ten Hag's men who sought a response after suffering a 7-0 humiliation against Liverpool in the Premier League.

The defeat at the Theatre of Dreams was occured in between a pair of La Liga stalemates with Real Madrid and Villarreal for Los Verdiblancos. Over the weekend, the Seville club who dropped point after conceding a late goal against the latter, a result that left them fifth in the table but only three points behind Real Sociedad.

In hindsight, Real Betis have not been able to advance beyond the last 16 of the Europa League in its current structure. Moreover, they only have one victory to boast about from their previous seven home games ahead of Manchester United's visit. Based on this, there is scant evidence to suggest that a remarkable comeback is likely to occur.

On the other hand, Erik ten Hag's men will be hoping to put the tie to bed when they take to the Benito Villamarín Stadium on Thursday. With the first leg advantage to their name, they will look to get back to winning ways following the weekend's draw with Southampton in the Premier League. The Red Devil's bid to secure successive wins after the thrashing against Liverpool was complicated after they were forced to battle with 10 men following Casemiro's first-half sending off.

In Europe, the availability of the Brazilian midfielder is not in question, and his side will be hoping that he will contribute to their bid to reach the last eight stage. United will approach the European encounter on the back of the fact that they have never been eliminated from the last 16 of the Europa League when winning the first leg.

Although winning only two of their last six away games is not an encouraging sign for Ten Hag's side, Manchester United have not lost in their previous four trips to Spain. Therefore, they need to prevent a disastrous collapse to secure their spot in the quarter-finals
