Manchester United vs Real Betis LIVE! Europa League match stream, latest team news, lineups, TV today
Tonight’s Europa League clash at Old Trafford is the ideal opportunity for Erik ten Hag’s side to bounce back from a shock thrashing at the hands of Liverpool – but their opponents in this last-16 first leg are certainly no pushovers.
Currently riding high in LaLiga, Betis held Real Madrid to a draw on the weekend to end a run of three consecutive victories and are under the wily tutelage of Manuel Pellegrini, who certainly knows how to rile the United faithful as the former boss of Manchester City.
United have reached at least the semi-finals in their last three Europa League campaigns and will be in no mood to give up their hunt for a second trophy of the season at this stage, having already knocked out Spain’s top side in Barcelona. In terms of team news, Marcel Sabitzer is ruled out for the Red Devils. Follow Man United vs Real Betis LIVE via Standard Sport’s match blog!

Manchester United vs Real Betis
Hello and welcome!
The Europa League last-16 tie between Man United and Real Betis starts here with Old Trafford playing host to tonight’s first leg.
For the Red Devils, a second trophy of the season is very much on their agenda in this competition having downed Barcelona in a play-off round to get here – with this their third encounter with Spanish opposition this season.
But a 7-0 humbling at Liverpool last weekend has reminded Erik ten Hag that his squad is far from the finished product.
Real Betis are fifth in LaLiga and hold out hope of winning their first-ever European title, which will require victory in their maiden meeting with Man United.
Kick-off comes at 8pm!
