Manchester United's quest for continental glory continues as they take on Europa League specialists Sevilla on Sunday at 8pm.

The Red Devils reached the semi-finals with a close 1-0 win for FC Copenhagen last time out, and needed a Bruno Fernandes penalty in extra time to get through.

However, their task in the last four only becomes more difficult when they face a Sevilla that has lifted this trophy no less than five times over the last decade.

Julen Lopetegui's team dominated the Wolves in their quarter-final triumph, outshotting the Premier League team 18-6 and taking 76% of possession. That said, it took a goal from Lucas Ocampos in the 88th minute to seal the victory for Los Nervionenses.

With Inter and Shakhtar Donetsk going head-to-head in the other semi-final, no one knows who will lift the coveted trophy on Friday.

Previous lineups of Sevilla & Man Utd:
Sevilla (vs Lobos): Bounou; Navas, Kounde, Carlos, Reguilon; Banega, Fernando, Jordan; Suso, En-Nesyri, Ocampos.
Man Utd (vs FC Copenhagen): Romero; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Williams; Pogba, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial
Nemanja Gudelj remains Sevilla's only doubt after losing the quarter-final win over Wolves, so Lopetegui could name an unchanged XI against United.

Luke Shaw, Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe remain offside for the Red Devils, while Marcus Rashford will need an evaluation after hurting his groin at the end against Copenhagen.

Players to watch:

Sevilla: At 32, this feels like a kind of swan song at the top for Ever Banega, but that doesn't mean his influence on Sevilla's luck is waning. Quite the opposite, in fact, with the Argentine playmaker providing back-to-back assists in wins over Roma and Wolves to reach this round. With Man Utd rather short on midfield mobility, Banega should find plenty of room in which to give up his wizardry at the ballgame, and the Red Devils will need to be on high alert against his deliveries to the penalty area.

Man Utd: It may have been a Bruno Fernandes penalty that sent United into the semi-finals, but it was Mason Greenwood who possibly provided the biggest threat on the night, hitting the post and having a goal disallowed by VAR for offside. The English teenager has already scored five times in this season's competition (the second-most overall of any player so far) and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking for his wonderful boy to unlock the opposition once again.
