Real Betis vs Manchester United LIVE! Europa League match stream, team latest news, lineups, TV, prediction today
Manchester United go into the Europa League clash at Real Betis tonight with a commanding lead. Erik ten Hag’s side, fresh from the 7-0 defeat by Liverpool, managed to beat their Spanish opponents 4-1 last week and get one foot in the quarter-finals.
The cup competition was an important part of ten Hag’s first season as a coach. While United are still a long way from contending for the Premier League title, they at least ended their trophy drought by capturing the Carabao Cup last month and could still win both the Europa League and the FA Cup . That, coupled with a place in the top four, represents a major step forward for a team that was in dire straits prior to the Dutchman’s arrival.
Barring a complete collapse, United will make it into the last eight. A possible meeting with Arsenal is delicious, but before that they have work to do at Estadio Benito Villamarín. Follow the action LIVE with Standard Sport’s dedicated match blog!

Thierry Henry says to Harry Kane: You must leave Tottenham, if I were you I could not sleep at night

Kane has just one year left on his contract over the summer and the player is in no rush to sign an extension, leading to ongoing speculation that he may finally decide to leave.

Ten Hag shared how to solve the big Casemiro problem after a four-game suspension
Graham Poll has dismissed suggestions that Casemiro is being unfairly targeted by Premier League referees after he was sent off again for Manchester United at the weekend.
The Brazilian midfielder received his marching orders for the second time in just five weeks in the first half of Sunday’s goalless tie against relegation contenders Southampton at Old Trafford, leaving the field in tears and being comforted by his team-mates after being shown a red card by official Anthony Taylor for a poor challenge to Saints counterpart Carlos Alcaraz.
Casemiro will now serve a four-game national ban which will rule him out of the forthcoming FA Cup quarter-finals game against Fulham, as well as other high-profile games against Newcastle, Brentford and Everton.

Guardiola insists he is a failure after snubbing ‘idol’ Julia Roberts at Man City
Pep Guardiola has surprisingly revealed how ‘Idol’ Julia Roberts broke his heart with a fondness for rivals Manchester United.
Manchester City defeated RB Leipzig 7-0 in a lopsided Champions League round of 16 second leg on Tuesday night in which superstar striker Erling Haaland scored five goals on aggregate to seal an 8-1 aggregate win and easily secure a spot in the quarterfinals – Draw on Friday.
