Is Granada vs Manchester United on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Europa League fixture


Manchester United return to Europa League action this evening as they visit Spanish side Granada in their quarter-final first leg.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men progressed past Spanish opposition earlier in the competition when they beat Real Sociedad 4-0 on aggregate in the round of 32, before they dispatched AC Milan to reach the last eight.

With Manchester City edging closer to reclaiming the Premier League title, the Europa League represents United’s last remaining opportunity to win silverware this season, and their first under Solskjaer.

Their opponents Granada lie ninth in La Liga having lost their previous two matches, and reached this stage of the competition thanks to knockout wins over Napoli and Molde. It’s the club’s first-ever season of European football.
