Ole Gunnar Solskjaer determined to make it third time lucky for Manchester United

Follow all the action live as Wolves face Sevilla in the Europa League quarter-finals in Duisburg tonight.

The tournament is being played out in a sudden-death format due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with tonight’s winner set to face Manchester United in the semi-finals on Sunday.

Wolves’ Premier League season ended in disappointing fashion, with the club sliding into a seventh-place finish on the final day. However, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side responded by defeating Olympiacos at Molineux last week to reach this stage of the competition. Sevilla, who finished fourth in La Liga, beat Roma to reach the last eight. Follow all the action live below:

Wolves make two changes from the side that overcame Olympiakos last week: Ruben Vinagre and Leander Dendoncker come in for Jonny and Daniel Podence.

Sevilla, meanwhile, are unchanged after their comfortable 2-0 win over Roma in the last-16.

Wolves, for all their progress under Nuno Espírito Santo over the last couple of years, are certainly underdogs tonight. They meet a Sevilla side that ended their domestic campaign in excellent form, just missing out on a third-place finish in La Liga. Julen Lopetegui has got his side ticking, and it must be remembered that Los Palanganas are five-time winners of the Europa League. Their dominance over the last decade or so has been comparable to Real Madrid in the Champions League, so this is a tough ask for Wolves. In a one-off tie in Duisburg, though, the Premier League team might fancy their chances.

Shakhtar Donetsk of Ukraine play Basel of Switzerland in tonight's other game. The winners of that will meet Inter in the last four, while Manchester United await whoever comes out on top at the MSV-Arena. We could have an all-English semi-final to look forward to on Sunday.

Sevilla are in formidable form defensively heading into this one. They've conceded just one goal in their last seven games in all competitions, and that kind of resolve could serve them well in this mini-tournament. Wolves, though, are an efficient defensive unit, too, so it won't be a surprise if tonight's game is a close one.

Wolves boss Nuno Espírito Santo, speaking to BT Sport: "The game is going to be very tough. We have to find solutions in order to hurt Sevilla and control them. We arrived in Germany two days before the match to get used to this temperature, to get used to the pitch and to have the opportunity to stay in the hotel and do a bit of recovering. It's still very hot and humid; it's going to be tough for both teams."

This is the first time Wolves and Sevilla have met in a competitive game, which is an indication of how far the English club have come in a relatively short period of time. Six years ago, Wolves were in League One, fighting to get out of the third tier while Sevilla were on their way to a third Europa League title.
