Ninety years, a lifetime has waited for Granada and its fans to experience a game like this. Already without the mud on the boots of the Third fields and under the spotlights of the Europa League, the rojiblancos look straight ahead and without fear of the Manchester United, a colossal rival that serves to gauge everything the Andalusian team has achieved until reaching this historic appointment.
Parking the pike and the important emotional charge surrounding the meeting, Diego Martnez’s team awaits the arrival of the ‘red devils’ ready to crush the forecasts again and turn Los Crmenes, where Npoles and Molde have already given up, into hell for United players.
In the previous qualifying rounds, the Grenadians began to cement their classification with two wins in their domains, thus paving the way for the return clash, a recipe that the Andalusians want to repeat again against Solskjaer’s, although it will not be an easy mission, since Manchester managed to storm the fiefdoms of Real Sociedad and Milan to stand in the quarterfinals.
Given the great potential of the rival, Granada is aware of the plan to follow, with the clear objective of stepping on Old Trafford still with options to stay alive in the second continental competition. For this, the Nazares will be based on their great performance as locals, where they are one of the most reliable teams in the competition. Till the date, the rojiblancos have conceded only two goals in the six games played at their stadium in the Europa League, an indispensable strength to face United’s offensive arsenal.
Doubts on the sides
Physical problems have been a constant for Granada throughout the season, and not be different in the clash against Manchester. Although the break has served to recover troops, Diego Martnez has the doubts of Neva and Foulquier, the two starting full-backs who have a hard time reaching the crash in perfect condition. In the case of not being able to count on them, Vallejo would present himself again as an emergency solution.
In addition, Luis Surez and Machs have worked against the clock to live the duel against United, although it seems complicated that none of them can participate from the beginning, so they will wait for their opportunity on the bench, providing the Galician coach with more resources to change the course of the game if the situation gets complicated .
