Our prediction: Granada v Man Utd

Granada are the underdogs here and will likely try to frustrate United and we’ve struggled against this kind of opponent during Solskjaer’s reign.

That said, United beat Real Sociedad 4-0 in their first leg meeting in the last 32 and they are two places and nine points ahead of Granada in La Liga.

At least one away goal would make it a decent night’s work, especially if it’s accompanied by a clean sheet.

Our prediction: Granada 0-2 United
