Man Utd vs Granada LIVE: Stream free, TV channel, team news confirmed – Europa League latest updates


GOOD EVENING

Welcome to Old Trafford for our live coverage of the Europa League quarter-final second leg between Manchester United and Granada.

In a season in which United have enhanced their reputation for winning games from the jaws of defeat, the advantage they hold going into this game may feel like unfamiliar territory.

A steady if unspectacular first leg performance last Thursday earnt them a 2-0 victory – and it’s probably just as well.

Amid Marcus Rashford’s opener and Bruno Fernandes’ late penalty in Andalusia, three United players collected yellow cards that rule them out of this return.

The suspended trio of Harry Maguire, Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw could also be joined on the sidelines by Rashford, their top scorer throughout this European campaign.

The England forward sat out training on Wednesday with an ankle injury, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has vowed to give him as much time as he needs to recover.

Last week’s meeting was labelled the biggest game in Granada’s history, but not even the presence of hundreds of home fans outside Nuevo Los Carmenes – and a naked one inside it – could spur their side on to a famous result.

However, the Nazaries showed their fighting spirit and ability to score away from home by coming from behind to win at Real Valladolid on Saturday, and they once again harbour hopes of securing European football through their La Liga position.

And Diego Martinez’s team still believe that they can defy the odds at Old Trafford despite the likely absence of Kenedy. The Chelsea loanee was a threat throughout the first game but has picked up a knock since.

With Roma or Ajax awaiting in the semi-finals, tonight’s contest should be a formality for Manchester United – but this is football and strange things can happen.

Tonight’s starting line-ups will be announced shortly before the second leg gets underway at 8pm.
