United's chances played down

13 March 2018 05:18:52 EST

Jose Mourinho has said before Manchester United's match against Sevilla that he does not think his side are one of the best in the Champions League.

United qualified for the Champions League by winning the Europa League last term but they have not won the Premier League title since the 2012/13 campaign, finishing seventh, fourth, fifth and sixth in the last four seasons.

They are currently second behind runaway leaders Manchester City and drew last month's round of 16 first-leg encounter in Sevilla 0-0.

United are 1/2 to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Champions League and 6/1 to beat Sevilla 1-0 on Tuesday with Marcus Rashford, who netted both their goals on Saturday in the 2-1 victory against Liverpool, 7/4 to score at any time against the La Liga outfit.

Mourinho said: "I don't think we are one of the best teams in the competition. But I think when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen.

"I think when you are in the last 16, it looks really, really far. But when a team gets in the last eight, you start smelling semi-finals and I think when a team gets into the last eight, the feeling is, of course, you are among the best.

"I think we're playing against a team that didn't lose against Liverpool home and away. I don't feel that we have any advantage in this moment."

Manchester United can be backed at 12121/1 to win the Champions League outright this season.
