sbobet thai Jose Mourinho talked down Manchester United's chances of winning the Champions League ahead of Tuesday's second leg of their last-16 tie with Sevilla.
The fixture is finely balanced at 0-0 following a defensive shut-out by Mourinho's side in Spain, and the manager was coy about his chances of winning the trophy for a third time.
Asked if he feels he has the conditions to bring a fourth European Cup to Old Trafford, Mourinho said: "Not yet, but when a team reaches the last eight anything is possible.
"Now I have only one name in my mind: it is Sevilla. I know that it is very difficult to go through. If we go through to the quarter-final draw, it doesn't matter the opponent - for us or for Sevilla - will always be one of the big names in European football, but we will try." sbobet thai
Sevilla were beaten 2-0 by Valencia on Saturday and are 11 points adrift from the top four in La Liga.
The Spanish side have won four of their last six away games, but previously lost five of their previous nine away from the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
"It's a special match because we can reach the quarter-finals," said head coach Vincenzo Montella. "It's special for me and for the club because we have not played in the last eight for 60 years."
Paul Pogba is a doubt for Manchester United's Champions League last-16 second leg against Sevilla.
The 24-year-old missed Saturday's Premier League win against Liverpool through injury and Mourinho is unsure whether the midfielder will be available on Tuesday.
Anthony Martial is back and Zlatan Ibrahimovic trained with his United team-mates ahead of the match, but Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Daley Blind remain sidelined.
Sevilla are lacking options down their right-hand side, with former Manchester City winger Jesus Navas ruled out with injury. sbobet thai
