Manchester United welcome Granada to Old Trafford on Thursday evening in the second leg of the Europa League quarter-finals with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men holding healthy 2-0 aggregate lead.
The La Liga side are playing in Europe for the first time ever this season, but they have a mountain to climb if they are to keeping their campaign alive.
Manchester United vs Granada Latest Odds
United are unbeaten at home in the Europa League in their last 17 encounters, with another Spanish side – Athletic Club – the last team to win at Old Trafford in this competition.
The hosts can be backed at 4/9 (1.44) with bet365 to claim a victory and secure their place in the final four in style, whilst the draw would also see them through and that is available at 10/3 (4.33) .
Diego Martinez’s men ended a four-match losing streak by coming from behind to win 2-1 at La Liga strugglers Valladolid on Sunday and are offered at 7/1 (8.00) to record what would arguably be the most famous win in their 90-year history.
Manchester United vs Granada Team News
The Premier League outfit are without Anthony Martial and Eric Bailly, while Phil Jones remains a long-term absentee.
Granada defender Domingos Duarte and midfielder Luis Milla are both out, although Colombian striker Luis Suarez could be fit enough to start up front having only been on the bench in the first leg.
Manchester United vs Granada Preview
The first leg was perhaps a closer contest than many expected and Bruno Fernandes’ late penalty meant the scoreline was harsh on the side from Andalusia.
Even if Granada are unable to overturn the deficit they will be looking for a goal to round off what has been an extraordinary campaign, and the Spanish side have scored in six of their seven away matches in the competition including qualifiers.
United, for their part, have scored and conceded in six of their last 10 home matches in all competitions and backing goals at both ends on Thursday night could be an appealing option.
Manchester United vs Granada Tips and Predictions
Both teams to score is available at evens (2.00) , a price which invites consideration in almost any context, and given Granada’s record of scoring on the road in the tournament this term, it is surely a selection which provides serious value.
