Manchester United will face Sevilla on Sunday, for a chance to advance to the final of the Europa League later this month.

The Red Devils booked a place in this weekend’s showdown, after beating Danish side, FC Copenhagen, 1-0 on Monday.

Ahead of the meeting, Sevilla boss, Julen Lopetegui, has hailed United as the biggest football club in the world, which will be hard to beat, but that his side will be ready to square up to them when they meet.

He told the media, “We are going to play against Manchester United in the next match.

“They’re the biggest team in the world but we’re going to be prepared for them.

“We’re focused on the next game, against a top, historic side, one of the best in the history of the sport who are in great form.

“We will give our best as we always do. To play against them will be really tough, but we’ll go into it believing we can beat them.”

Of course, it is exciting to know United are this feared and revered, but it could also be just mind games, as we all know how dangerous the Spanish side can be.
