Man Utd Real Betis

Manchester United will be looking to put their recent Premier League thrashing at the hands of Liverpool behind them when they take on Real Betis in the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie tonight.

The Red Devils were humiliated 4-2 by their bitter rivals at Old Trafford last weekend, and will be hoping to bounce back with a positive result against the Spanish side.

United have been in good form in Europe this season, winning all five of their group stage matches, and they will be confident of progressing to the quarter-finals.

Real Betis, meanwhile, have been inconsistent in La Liga this season, but they have been impressive in the Europa League, topping their group ahead of AC Milan.

The match will be played at the Estadio Benito Villamarin in Seville, and will kick off at 8pm GMT.

The game will be broadcast live in the UK on BT Sport 2, with coverage starting at 7.30pm.

It will also be available to stream live on the BT Sport app and website, as well as on the BT Sport YouTube channel.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to make a number of changes to his side for the match, with the likes of Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial all likely to start.

Real Betis, meanwhile, will be without the injured Sergio Canales, but they will be boosted by the return of Joaquin, who has been out since December with a knee injury.

The two sides have never met before in European competition, and it promises to be an intriguing encounter.

United will be looking to put their recent Premier League woes behind them and get back to winning ways in Europe, while Real Betis will be hoping to take a step closer to the quarter-finals.

It promises to be an exciting match, and one that could have a big impact on the outcome of the tie.
