Roy Keane is confident that Manchester United will ease to victory over Sevilla in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash next month.

The Red Devils produced an uninspiring performance in Manchester United’s goalless draw with the La Liga side in Spain on Wednesday night.

Indeed, David De Gea made eight saves after Sevilla registered 25 shots on goal throughout the one-sided Champions League clash.

Manchester United are looking to reach the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since David Moyes led the Red Devils to the last eight in 2014.

Former Red Devils captain Keane is backing Manchester United to beat Sevilla in the second leg with home advantage at Old Trafford,

“In an ideal world, obviously, you are hoping to get a goal away from home,” Keane told ITV Sport. “Performance wasn’t great, but 0-0 you take it and you expect United to beat Sevilla at home.”

Manchester United haven’t won the Champions League title since 2008 when the Red Devils beat Premier League rivals Chelsea FC on penalties in Moscow.

The Red Devils lost to Barcelona in the Champions League final in 2009 and 2011 to miss out a fourth and fifth European crown.

Manchester United will welcome Chelsea FC in their next Premier League game at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The 20-time English champions won the Europa League crown last term after Manchester United beat Ajax 2-0 in Stockholm last term.
