Manchester United Aim For Champions League Quarter-Finals

Elaine Stenson By Elaine Stenson - March 13, 2018

Manchester United are trying to follow rivals Manchester City and Liverpool tonight - and make the Champions League quarter-finals.

They're goalless ahead of the home leg of their last-16 tie with Sevilla.

Midfielder Michael Carrick's retiring at the end of the season - he was asked about the prospect of playing his final European match:

"It's not something I thought of - I'm just thinking about enjoying the rest of the season and playing as much as I can - whether that's the last one or not - I hope it's not the last my a long stretch but there's no point in thinking about it before it happens....

Boss Jose Mourinho says it's a huge night at Old Trafford - after beating Liverpool there at the weekend:

"It's more important than Saturday - because Saturday was a match for points - we still have 24 more points to finish Top 4 - to try to finish third, to try to finish second, if possible..but knockouts become more important than championship matches."
