Sevilla 0 Manchester United 0

It`s all to play for in the second leg of the last-16 knockout tie in the Champions League after Manchester United earned a respectable draw out in Spain.

The draw ensured that all of the English sides left in the competition avoid defeat in the first leg of their ties, however, Jose Mourinho will be acutely aware that 0-0 can be a dangerous score with an away goal, at Old Trafford, for Sevilla, altering the complexion of the tie significantly.

In Spain, Manchester United has David de Gea to thank for the clean-sheet with the keeper producing some exceptional saves to deny the likes of Joaquin Correa, Stephen N`Zonzi before producing a breath-taking one-handed save to keep out a header from Luis Muriel.

Sadly, Manchester United produced very little of note going forward with perhaps the best chances of a Manchester United goal falling to Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford, the former saw his volley fly well over the bar whilst the latter saw his shot go the wrong side of the posts.

At the final whistle, Sevilla must have been wondering just how the game had ended 0-0, the Spanish side, who forced all the offensive action, registered twenty-five shots, but aside from the splendid saves De Gea produced, it has to be said some of the Spanish sides finishing was woeful.

However, the night also saw Manchester United lose Ander Herrera to injury. The Spaniard, making a return to first-team action, lasted a mere sixteen minutes before succumbing to injury.

The second leg will be played at Old Trafford on 13 March and although there is the inherent danger that Sevilla could sneak a vital away goal, Jose Mourinho will be confident that his sides` impressive home form will see them through to the quarter-finals of the competition.
