Manchester United vs Sevilla

Man Utd news: Sevilla boss Vincenzo Montella reveals Champions League tactics

But Mourinho, who has won the competition twice before with Porto and Inter Milan, said United will start "smelling" the semi-finals if they manage to get past Sevilla.

Jose Mourinho has challenged his Manchester United players to go all the way in the Champions League if they can first pass their "very difficult" test against Sevilla.

The last team to advance in any knockout stage despite a goalless draw at home in the first leg was Atletico Madrid, who defeated Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge in the semifinals in 2014.

The 27-year-old made a staggering save to deny Sevilla's Luis Muriel from point-blank range, further enhancing his reputation as one of the best shot-stoppers in world football.

Manchester United's win over Liverpool FC lifted them up into second place in the Premier League table as they look to try and finish as close to champions elect Manchester City.

Mourinho has begun the process of reversing that decline, even though United snuck into the Champions League through the back door, by winning the Europa League last season.

"But when a team gets in the last eight, you start smelling semi-finals and I think when a team gets into the last eight, the feeling is, of course, you are among the best".

Speaking to La Sexta, and covered by Marca and others, Mourinho was asked about De Gea potentially moving to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

The tie is evenly poised at 0-0 after the first leg in Spain and Mourinho insists United must improve on their performance in Seville.

Historically, 21 of the 30 teams to advance from a 0-0 draw in the first leg of the knockout rounds of the Champions League have done so with the return leg at home.

"So imagine if we were knocked out - it would be considered a disaster, but for me it would be a disappointment. But the reality in this moment is that we have no advantage at all".
