Manchester United 2-0 Granada (agg 4-0): Cavani strike and Vallejo own goal put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side through to the Europa League semi-finals

Manchester United have eased into the Europa League semi-finals with a 2-0 victory on the night over Granada, completing a 4-0 aggregate win over the Spanish side.

The Red Devils were in control from the off as Edinson Cavani volleyed the home side in front in the sixth minute.

The ball was worked out to Telles on the left and Pogba trotted unmarked into the box to meet his cross.

He headed the ball back to the equally free Cavani who sized up a volley and despatched it into the bottom corner.

It was the Uruguay striker’s 50th goal in European competition and a fine one at that.

Granada did have half-chances through Yangel Herrera, but he failed to hit the target with close-range headers.

De Gea produced an excellent reflex save to deny Herrera in the dying seconds before Juan Mata – on as a substitute to make his first appearance in two months – pressured Jesus Vallejo into heading into his own goal.

An own goal from Jesus Vallejo rounded off the scoring, sending Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his men into the last four of the competition.

Manchester United will play Roma in the semi-finals following the Italian outfit’s triumph over Ajax.

United are next in action against Burnley at home in the Premier League on Sunday.

Granada have a week to prepare for their next LaLiga game against Eibar at home.
