Manchester United vs Granada predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Europa League fixture tonight

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping for a straightforward night’s work this evening as his Manchester United side prepare to book their spot in the Europa League semi-finals.

Leading Granada 2-0 from the first leg, it would require an almighty upset for the Red Devils to be sent crashing out tonight, a feat you cannot see the Spanish side being able to pull off.

Added to that the impressive form United showed to come from behind and beat Spurs 3-1 at the weekend, you don’t imagine a colossal giant killing is on the cards at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer is looking to win the Europa League just four years after Jose Mourinho guided the club to its first ever triumph in the competition, and he should take one step closer to doing so tonight.

Here’s all you need to know ahead of the fixture.

When is it?

The match will kick off at 8pm GMT on Thursday, April 15.

How can I watch it?

The fixture will air live on BT Sport 2. Subscribers can also stream the action live on the broadcaster’s website and app.

What is the team news?

Man Utd will be without the trio of Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay as all three of them picked up yellow cards in the first leg which rules them out of tonight’s game.

Meanwhile, Granada center-back Domingos Duarte will also miss the match through suspension but striker Roberto Soldado was rested at the weekend so is expected to be fully fit heading to Old Trafford.

Predicted line-ups

Man Utd: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Telles; Fred, Matic; Greenwood, Rashford, Pogba; Cavani

Granada: Silva; Foulquier, Sanchez, Vallejo, Neva; Herrera, Gonalons; Puertas, Montoro, Machis; Soldado


Man Utd: 4/9

Draw: 7/2

Granada: 6/1


Manchester United will be expected to coast through this one as they set their sights on the semi-finals. Providing they can avoid conceding an early goal, this should be a comfortable night’s work for the Red Devils. 2-0 Man Utd (agg 4-0).
