United dominated the early stages but neither side produced moments of real quality until Marcus Rashford broke through. That jolted Granada into action, with Yangel Herrera hammering the post, and the home team were more adventurous after the interval. United held firm, though, and delivered a telling blow in the dying seconds when Bruno Fernandes converted from the spot.

Expert predictions

Matthew Howarth, United reporter: Bruno Fernandes' late penalty in the first leg should mean United reach the semi-finals with plenty to spare. With several first-team regulars missing through suspension or injury, Ole Gunnar Solskjær may view this fixture as an ideal opportunity to give some of his fringe and young players a run-out at Old Trafford.

Simon Hart, Granada reporter: Granada bounced back from their first-leg disappointment with a late comeback victory at Valladolid – a first league away win since December and 23rd win in all competitions, marking a club record for the Andalusians when competing in Spain's top two divisions. A comeback at Old Trafford is a different task altogether, and the absence of Duarte from the centre of their defence will not help, while there are doubts over the availability of Kenedy because of an ankle problem. If Granada do fall short, though, it won't be for want of trying.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær, Manchester United manager: "We have got a great foundation, but we have to win. They will give everything they have got. Momentum is big in football. It is a quarter-final in Europe. [Granada] need to score goals. We have seen them against Barcelona, Real Madrid; how dangerous they can be. We have to play a good game and not give them those opportunities."

Jesús VaIlejo, Granada defender: "We have to be happy with our performance [in the first leg]. If we play like this in Manchester we can win, though I don't know if that will be enough."
