Real Betis vs Manchester United prediction
United may well take their foot off the pedal against a Betis side playing with freedom given the pretty terminal nature of their hopes of qualifying. But, the Spaniards will not get close to the shock comeback required to reach the next round.
Real Betis to win 2-1, Man United to qualify 5-3 on aggregate.
