It`s all to play for in the Champions League last-16 knockout tie, between Manchester United and Sevilla, after a 0-0 draw in the first-leg.

United, who have a decent home record, will be confident of securing a place in the quarter-finals but will have to play better than they did in the away leg where Sevilla were the dominant team going forward.

Following the 0-0 draw, both managers took time out to speak to the media.

Jose Mourinho had this to say,

'The only moment where we felt relieved was in the last couple of moments of the first half when from a couple of our mistakes in possession they had a couple of good situations and De Gea made good saves.

'Apart from that the game was even, but the statistics are what they are.

'I really feel the result reflected what the game was - you ask me was it a good result, and I say it was not good and not bad.'

Jose obviously realises an away goal, at Old Trafford, could have major ramifications.

As for the Sevilla boss, Vincenzo Montella, he had this to say,

'I am very happy with the character shown by the team.

'We have to be pleased with the performance. The 0-0 leaves everything open.'

It does, but I fancy Manchester United to scrape through this tie and reach the last eight of this prestigious competition.
