Granada vs Manchester United live stream: How to watch Europa League fixture online and on TV tonight


Manchester United visit the south of Spain this evening for a Europa League clash with Granada in the first leg of the quarter-finals.

United beat Real Sociedad and AC Milan to progress to the last eight, and now face a side who lie ninth in La Liga and have lost their past two league fixtures.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side defeated Brighton in their last Premier League outing and have a visit to Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur to come on Sunday, but will be looking to continue their good European form at the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes tonight.

The Europa League is the club’s last remaining opportunity to end their four-year wait for a trophy this season, following their elimination from the FA Cup and given Manchester City’s 14-point lead in the Premier League.
