Javier Hernandez scored twice to put Man United through at Marseille’s expense in 2011

Will Manchester United progress to the Champions League quarter-final?

First, they must overcome Sevilla at Old Trafford having drawn 0-0 in Spain in their last 16 first leg.

And, as we discovered in The Times, 70 per cent of teams (21) that drew 0-0 away from home in the first leg of Champions League knockout ties have progressed, while nine have been eliminated.

This is what happened five previous times Man United drew 0-0 away in the first leg of their knockout ties.
