Real Betis are after a comeback when they host Manchester United in Spain in the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League.

The game is the second leg of the stage after United’s 4-1 emphatic win at Old Trafford last win to give them a first-leg advantage.

Los Verdiblancos’ loss at the Theatre of Dreams came in between the draws with Real Madrid and Villarreal in La Liga. Yeremy’s goal in the latter’s 1-1 tie at the weekend dropped them to fifth place in the standings, just three points behind Real Sociedad amid their rivals’ rough spell.

With only one victory in their previous seven home games, Betis hasn’t advanced past the round of 16 in the Europa League under its present format. Yet, imitating compatriots Valencia would be highly beneficial for them in this situation.

No other side in the Europa League has come back from a three-goal deficit to advance from a knockout tie, but Valencia did so in the 2013–14 Europa League quarterfinals against Basel, losing 3-0 in the first leg before sweeping to a 5-0 victory in the return.

With United’s current form, it is unlikely Betis could replicate same performance but European football has been no stranger to surprises.

Man United will be able to count on the services of Casemiro for this game but they risk losing the Brazilian and Bruno Fernandes if both players are carded in today’s game.
