When Manchester United were drawn against Seville in the last-16 of the Champions League, everyone associated with the club fancied their chances of progressing to the quarter-finals.
Even after their 0-0 in the first-leg at Sevilla, they believed they would ease into the last-eight.
In fact, they would have fancied their chances after a goalless draw in the first-leg of the second-leg at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
One man that certainly was convinced they would still be going through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League at half-time of their second-leg was Paul Scholes.
The United legend was appearing on BT Sport providing analysis on the match and wasn’t scared to make a big prediction after 45 minutes.
WATCH: PAUL SCHOLES' HALF-TIME PREDICTION
Take a look:
Yes, he said: “Sevilla are a poor team, a really poor team. They have not got a goal in them. United should win this game."
FOOTBALL FANS MOCK SCHOLES
And, following United’s 2-1 loss, ruthless football fans were destroying Scholes for his comments on social media. Check out the reaction:
Wissam Ben Yedder made Scholes look really silly, didn’t he?
After coming off the bench in the 72nd-minute, he scored twice past David de Dea within six minutes to book their place in the last-eight.
A Romelu Lukaku goal in the 84th-minute made absolutely no difference to the tie.
Maybe Scholes’ half-time comments sums up the problem United had throughout the entire 180 minutes - complacency.
In fact, it seems that plenty of people were under-estimating the side that earned two draws against Liverpool in the group stages.
Ahead of the tie, former United player and now Sky Sports pundit, Ray Wilkins, suggested Sevilla would be a "bottom-six" side in the Premier League.
We're not sure who looks sillier - Scholes or Wilkins?
