Manchester United produced an excellent result on their visit to Granada. The Red Devils won (0-2) at Nuevo Los Cármenes in the first leg of the Europa League's quarter-finals. Rashford, after half an hour into the game, took advantage of a long pass from Lindelöf to make it the first goal for the visitors. Marcus made a spectacular control and beat Rui Silva.
After the break, Granada tried to get back into the game. Still, Solskjaer's team barely conceded chances. It gave an almost fatal blow to the tie with a penalty scored by Bruno Fernandes near the game's end. Juan Mata, on the bench, finally did not participate in the game.
The second leg will be next week, at Old Trafford. But first on Sunday, Manchester United will play an important game in the Premier League against José Mourinho's Tottenham.
