Granada vs Manchester United Predictions and Betting Tips
The Estadio Los Carmenes is the stage for this highly-anticipated encounter in the Europa League quarterfinals as Granada entertain Manchester United. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
This would be the first-ever meeting between both sides. However, we certainly expect the two teams to be focused on drawing first blood with regards to their head-to-head record.
Feisty encounter on the cards
Granada did very well to knock out Napoli in the last 32 and then Molde in the previous round but would face an even bigger test in form of Manchester United. They have lost all of their last three games in all competitions pointing towards some form of struggle. However, we could see them shock the Mancunians just like they did other teams in this year’s knockout stage.
Manchester United are still in search of their first trophy since Jose Mourinho’s first season in which they won both the Europa League and the Carabao Cup. Although they have come close in recent years, it just hasn’t happened for the Mancunians. With the league all but lost to their local rivals, and a recent FA Cup exit to Leicester City, they’re expected to go hard in the remainder of their Europa League campaign.
