Manchester United vs Granada, Europa League 15.04.2021
Manchester United will look to seal qualification to the semi-finals of the Europa League when they host Granada at Old Trafford on Thursday night for the second leg of their quarter-final tie.
A 2-0 first-leg win in Spain has Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side on the driver’s seat. They will however be without a few key players who are suspended for this leg which could potentially make the game wide open.

After dropping from the Champions League in ignominy, Manchester United have taken on the Europa League with a storm and are very much considered the favorites to be the last men standing in the competition. They came close in last year’s event, falling at the semis to eventual winners Sevilla.
Solskjaer side continued their incredible away record in the league at the weekend, as they avenged a 6-1 loss to Tottenham earlier in the season by beating them 3-1 in the capital with some swashbuckling attacking football in the second half, after trailing 1-0 at the break.
They are on a roll at the moment with three straight wins. The Red Devils have also not lost at home in their last eight matches but they will look to do better than they did at home in the last two rounds where they could only manage draws against Real Sociedad and AC Milan.
Diego Martinez’s outfit has steadily risen up to the top half of the Spanish division after playing on the other end in previous seasons. Despite that rise, they were no match to Manchester United in that first leg and Martinez will certainly expect more from his troops in this return leg.
That loss to the Red Devils was their fourth in a row but they did slow the slide with a much needed 2-1 comeback win over Real Valladolid and they will hope that win will mark the turnaround as they try to get back into the Europa League spots on the log, which at the moment looks like a bridge too far to cross.
Granada disappointed in that first leg but they have another opportunity, daunting as it may be to join fellow Spaniards Sevilla as the only teams to have pulled comebacks after two-goal deficits from their home legs.

MANCHESTER UNITED VS GRANADA BETTING PREDICTIONS
Although United are expected to sail safely through to the semis, Granada will not roll over in this second leg. They have shown they can score away from home, having done that in their last 12 away games across all competitions. The Red Devils will be without Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw, who have been excellent in their recent solid defensive performances. A reshuffled backline will be tested to the fullest and we expect Granada to find the back of the here even in a losing effort. United have too much quality, especially up front so they should still be able to take care of business. For our first betting tip today, we are therefore backing both teams to score @ 2.04.
United were superb at Tottenham on Sunday, where they played some of their best attacking football we have seen from them in recent weeks, With energy and vitality in the squad now, especially in the final third, we can see them picking up from where they left in that Tottenham game. Greenwood has been in his element in recent weeks and scored the final goal against Tottenham. We fancy him to continue his hot streak by bagging another goal here at any point in the game @ 2.66 at Betway bookie review as our call.
