Granada was unable to keep Manchester United out of the Europa League semi-finals. The Spanish surprise also lost the second match after the first leg. At Old Trafford, the score was “only” again 2-0.
After 0-2 in Spain, Manchester United had more or less sheep on dry ground, and a swift shot from Edinson Cavani instantly cleared any remaining doubts.
The early opening goal did not fire United in any way, as he put in a very modest performance against Granada again. Only in extra time the margin widened slightly after an own goal by Vallejo.
The 2017 European champions now meet Roma. In that version 4 years ago, I beat Ajax in the final, but there will be no re-release.
