Europa League

100% Fixed Sportpesa Thursday UEFA Europa League Picks On Man U, Villarreal, Ajax

Manchester United have done the job seven days ago on Spanish soil when they picked up a big 0-2 victory over Granada in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League quarter-final. Nazaries now need a miracle to go through to the semi-final as they need to score at least two goals without conceding a single to at least force the extra-time on Thursday evening at Old Trafford.

The team led by Diego Martinez did lift the spirits in the dressing room with a 1-2 comeback victory over Real Valladolid on Sunday afternoon in La Liga. Martinez took advantage of the opportunity to give rest to some of his key men, including striker Roberto Soldado who is once again expected to be the main threat to United’s goal.

Manchester United vs Granada Head-to-head

This will be the second head to head encounter between the two sides.As mentioned above, Manchester United took a 0-2 victory seven days ago at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes.Marcus Rashford opened the scoring at the half-hour mark, while Bruno Fernandes converted the 90th-minute penalty to double United’s lead.In general, it was an even game where we saw only six shots on target, three on each side.

Manchester United vs Granada Prediction

Granada need to push for goals here which should eventually leave plenty of space for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s forwards.

Mason Greenwood delivered a beautiful performance in the weekend’s 1-3 comeback victory over Tottenham Hotspur in London. If he starts the return fixture, the youngster would be our main recommendation for the anytime goalscorer bet. Although the first leg was pretty poor in terms of goal-scoring chances at both ends, we would not be surprised to see a higher-scoring affair in the reverse fixture.

Manchester United have conceded at least a goal in three of the last four games in all competitions (they only kept a clean sheet against Granada seven days ago), and we would not be surprised to see them conceding to attacking-minded Nazaries on Thursday.
