Mourinho to settle for draw in Seville


Manchester United should be too strong for Sevilla over two legs of their Champions League round of 16 clash but Jose Mourinho’s side may have to settle for a draw in the first leg in Spain on Wednesday.

Sevilla secured a 2-1 win at Las Palmas at the weekend are and fifth in La Liga under the stewardship of former AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella, who replaced Eduardo Berizzo in December.

They lost 5-1 to Eibar earlier this month but held Liverpool to two draws in the group stage of the Champions League before Christmas, eventually finishing second behind the Reds but above Spartak Moscow and Maribor.

United are 23/10 to draw in Sevilla with Anthony Martial 7/1 to score the first goal.

Roma appear to have recovered from a recent slump that saw them pick up two points from five Serie A matches by winning three games in a row.

They were superb in the group stage of the Champions League, finishing above Chelsea after thrashing Antonio Conte’s team 3-0 in the Italian capital, but will not have it all their own way against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Shakhtar are top of the Ukrainian Premier League and thrashed Chornomorets Odesa 5-0 at the weekend.

Shakhtar are 6/4 to win Wednesday’s first leg and 2/1 to keep a clean sheet against Roma.

On Tuesday Chelsea take on Barcelona in what should be a mouthwatering encounter. The two teams have met each other 12 times in the Champions League since 2000.

Chelsea have won four of those matches, with five draws and three victories for Barcelona, who are attempting to reach the quarter-finals of the competition for the 11th campaign in a row.

Chelsea have been very inconsistent recently and Barcelona are 23/20 to triumph at Stamford Bridge and 53/20 to win the match by a one-goal margin.

Bayern Munich should get the better of Besiktas who surprised many pundits by finishing top of a group that also included FC Porto, RB Leipzig and Monaco.

The German side are 6/4 to win the match with both teams to score.
