Granada will host Manchester United in the biggest match of the Europa League’s quarter-final stage on Thursday.
The Red Devils travel to the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes without Eric Bailly (coronavirus), Anthony Martial and potentially the pair of Marcus Rashford and Alex Telles.
I can’t disclose my team now,” said manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of travelling to Spain.
“We’re not going to do that. Marcus is travelling and we have to make a decision tomorrow if he starts or is on the bench. I don’t think he’ll play the 90 minutes.
“Marcus is okay-ish. He’s trained this morning. He’s available to be selected, as I said, either as a sub or a starter. Juan [Mata] is back training as is Alex [Telles], so we’re looking stronger definitely. We didn’t lose anyone last weekend against Brighton.”
United did enough in a tense first knockout phase game to get past AC Milan and were below par in their come from behind win over Brighton on the weekend.
They will be lifted by the fact that the unheralded Spaniards are struggling at the moment with back-to-back league defeats.
Granada have a host of injury concerns particularly at the back where Carlos Neva, Dimitri Foulquier and Quini are all expected to miss this clash.
Between their hosts poor form and their own away record – the Red Devils have scored five and conceded none in their away matches this season in the competition – it should be a fairly straight forward affair for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Arsenal host Slavia Prague and Ajax Amsterdam entertain Roma in other games to watch tonight.
The Gunners are 1.49-1 to win on home soil while Ajax are installed as favourites at 1.90-1. Conversely, the Italians could provide some joy for those that back them at 3.53-1.
