United are in pole position in their Quarter Final game against Granada, taking a 2-0 lead into the second leg at Old Trafford

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side comfortably dispatch Granada last time out and they will be hoping for more of the same on Thursday. They come into this game on the back of a 3-1 win over Jose Mourinho's Spurs last week which was full of controversy and tension. An excellent all-round performance from Edinson Cavani spearheaded The Red Devils to a great performance and win which should give them confidence here. Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire are all suspended for this second leg, as United's absentee list continues to grow. They are also without Eric Bailly, Anthony Martial and Phil Jones. This could trouble them slightly but given the fact that Ole will still field a team likely to contain Pogba, Cavani and Fernandes, Man United should still have enough to get by the La Liga side.
Granada have certainly overperformed in recent times. For long periods of the season they seriously threatened to qualify for the Europa League for a second consecutive season but after a poor run of form this past month that does now seem highly unlikely. Before they got back to winning ways at the weekend with a 2-1 victory over relegation battlers Real Valladolid, they had lost four on the bounce in all competitions. Unless they pull off a miracle at Old Trafford, European football is probably off the cards for next season. Granada coach Diego Martinez should still be thrilled with his squad's performance. A mid table finish and a Europa League Quarter Final is still something to be celebrated for a club the stature of Granada. Domingos Duarte and Yan Eteki have now been cautioned three times and therefore will be suspended, but besides that the Andalusian side will be at pretty much full strength. Former Spurs striker Roberto Soldado will surely be excited to play on English soil once again. Could he make the difference and propel Granada to a famous upset?
I think not. It would be a very bold prediction to back Granada to defy the odds against United and I don't see them pulling that off.
Prediction: Manchester United 2-0 Granada (Agg: 4-0)
