Granada CF hosts Manchester United in the first leg of the Europa League quarterfinals. The match will be played on Thursday, April 8th at Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes (Granada)
Granada CF is a coaching team headed by Diego Martinez. In two years of work, the mentor managed to create a combat-ready team, which gained a foothold in the middle of the LaLiga standings and made it to the European Cups. In the Europa League knockout rounds, Granada managed to eliminate such opponents as formidable Napoli (2-0 and 1-2) and the more modest Molde (2-0 and 1-2). Granada has enough experienced footballers who make up its backbone. Gonalons, Soldado, Rui Silva, Foulquier - these players have a lot of experience in high-level matches. Among the main talents of the Spanish club, one can note Herrera, Suarez, Perez, Vallejo, and Carlos Neva.

So far, the Red Devils are not showing the maximum of their potential in the Europa League. The team has good chances to win silver medals in the Premier League, and Solskjaer is not going to spread himself too thin in two major tournaments. Despite this, the further Manchester United goes along the tournament, the more serious the team's attitude. In the knockout rounds, Manchester eliminated such opponents as Real Sociedad (0-4 and 0-0) and Milan (1-1 and 0-1). Manchester United's game under Solskjaer is entirely dependent on the actions of the players in the central zone. Fernandes, Pogba, Matic, and Fred have a huge influence on the organization of the team's attacks and the destruction of the tactical plans of opponents. But the attacking line of the Red Devils needs an efficient forward.
Granada surprised many by the elimination of the formidable Napoli in the 1/16 finals. But the success in the confrontation against Molde did not become sensational. Manchester United faced tough opponents in the knockout rounds and showed its advantage each time. As for the upcoming confrontation, the Red Devils have every chance to win a ticket to the semifinals. Solskjaer's charges will hold the initiative and will probably win the first leg.
Prediction for the match: Manchester United to win
