United have only faced Real Betis in two competitive fixtures and these were played in March last year, as Erik ten Hag's men triumphed 4-1 at home and 1-0 away in the Europa League Round of 16. Marcus Rashford netted in both games, while Antony, Bruno Fernandes and Wout Weghorst also scored in the first leg.

That tie was preceded by a friendly between the teams, during a winter break in the same 2022/23 campaign. Real Betis beat a youthful United side 1-0, courtesy of Nabil Fekir's second-half strike at the Estadio Benito Villamarin.

Real Betis, who are managed by ex-Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini, are currently seventh in La Liga. Their results in this calendar year so far include victories over Athletic Club and Granada, and a dramatic 4-2 away defeat to Barcelona, during which they rallied from 2-0 down to level at 2-2 through Isco's quick-fire double - only to concede twice in injury time.

Fans can expect another exciting game when the Reds and Los Verdiblancos contest the Snapdragon Cup at the stadium of the same name.

At that venue last year, a United team comprised almost entirely of Academy players - with Jonny Evans being the only senior professional on duty - faced Wrexham. The newly crowned champions of the National League, co-owned by Hollywood stars Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds, won the friendly match 3-1.
