Manchester United is strong in defense!
The Red Devils have a clear goal to win this Europa League tournament.
And they walk confidently towards her. Having eliminated two of the serious contenders Milan and Real Sociedad on their way.
What every success of Manchester United is built on is undoubtedly the strong defense.
In the elimination phase, for example, they conceded only 1 goal from 5 matches. Which means 4 whole dry nets.
The situation is similar in their performance in the English Premier League.
There they have conceded only 2 goals in their last 6 matches. And only once more than one goal per game for the last 11.
Granada is an insecure guest!
The small club from Granada is spoken of only in superlatives. And really no one can say anything bad about them.
Imagine a team with a modest budget without success in La Liga and never participating in Euro tournaments.
With his first season after promotion, instead of fighting for survival, he won the right to qualify for the Europa League.
And after 3 qualifying rounds he qualifies in the groups. After them, for the first time in its history, it reached the quarterfinals of the tournament.
Despite the 0-2 loss, they performed well in the first match of this clash.
Although, if you remember, they had a very crippled squad last week.
The lack of defense was particularly noticeable. In fact, the integrity of their most important unit was violated.
Granada are a typical home team. Who does not rely on his visits.
In their last 3 visits from the Europa League they have not had any success. And in La Liga for the whole season so far they have only 3 wins away.
Prediction for Man United - Granada
This rematch could end in any way.
And the only thing that is certain is that in the end the team from Manchester will continue to move forward.
And this is not only because of the result of the first meeting.
Rather, because of their huge advantage in every football and football aspect of the game.
For us as gamblers, however, this automatically means a lack of value.
As a bet on who will qualify. So in every market tied to a home victory.
But he is very happy with the offer for low performance in the match.
On the one hand, Granada is facing a very strong defense.
On the other hand, Manchester United must save energy for far more difficult matches.
The prediction I choose includes even small surprises like 0-0, 1-1 and even 0-1.
