I think Mourinho and his men under-rated Sevilla


Looking into yesterday's game between Manchester united and Sevilla at Old Trafford which resulted in a huge blow for United. It is really disappointing to see United crash out of the champions league Round of 16 this season against a team like Sevilla a team I feel United under-rated and this cost them a place in the Quarter final.


Initially, nobody would have believed it that Sevilla would put through against United because their form this season in the domestic league and even the champions league have not been fantastic either way United also have not put up an superb performance recently but have surely performed better. Firstly the main reason why I think United underestimated Sevilla is that I don't understand how the first leg ended in a goalless draw in the first place United should have emulated their Premier league counterparts, the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City, in the first leg at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium. Secondly, in the second leg at Old Trafford they were too relaxed believing some magic will happen, they should have been ahead in the first half instead of waiting for their opponent to score first before improving their game in a must win match. 


Lastly there is always a lesson or more to learn from such incident and one  lesson learned is never to under-rate anybody no matter their condition. Sevilla played the game like they have nothing to lose and it worked perfectly for them. I hope Jose Mourinho and his men have learned their lessons from this game.
