Manchester United’s sole triumph in the competition came six years ago, when they beat Ajax 2-0 in the final.

Erik ten Hag's side, who won the Carabao Cup final earlier this season and face Fulham in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday, completed a 5-1 aggregate success against Real Betis in the last-16 of the Europa League on Thursday.

United are 11/8 To Win the Europa League this season while Sevilla, who edged past Fenerbahce 2-1 in the last round, are available at 9/1.

Sporting aim for repeat success

Sporting Lisbon produced a major shock in the last-16 when they defeated Premier League leaders Arsenal on penalties and their reward for getting past the Gunners is a quarter-final clash against Juventus.

The Old Lady, who secured a 3-0 aggregate victory against Freiburg in the last round, are currently seventh in the Serie A table after being docked 15 points in January following an investigation into the club's past transfer dealings.

Sporting are in a rich vein of form as they have won their last four Primeira Liga games, as well as defeating Arsenal over two legs, but they are still only fourth in their domestic league and are 15 points behind leaders Benfica.
