Europa League: United draw Granada in quarter-finals before potential tricky semi-final

Manchester United have drawn Granada in the quarter-final of the Europa League – arguably the easiest draw we could’ve asked for after knocking out AC Milan in the last 16.

The Reds also found out their possible opponents for the semi-finals after being drawn against the winner of quarter-final 3, which sees Ajax take on AS Roma and shapes up for a more difficult encounter.

This season United have a fantastic chance to win the Europa League for a second time since 2017. Jose Mourinho was manager that season and Paul Pogba will be one of the players looking to make it two triumphs in the tournament.

I’m looking forward to the first leg against Granada because we should be looking to travel there for the first leg with the clear objective of getting the job done. That would make for a relaxed second leg like we had against fellow Spanish opponent Real Sociedad in the round of 32.

Potential final with Arsenal on the cards?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the coaching staff ought to be happy with the draw. It should give us a spring in our step on Sunday when we take on Leicester City in the quarter-final of the FA Cup.
