Man Utd Sail Past Granada to Book Roma Clash

 

Manchester United booked a Europa League semi-final with Roma after Edinson Cavani’s early strike sent them on their way to a 2-0 victory over Granada at Old Trafford, completing a 4-0 aggregate win.

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes secured a 2-0 first-leg triumph at Estadio Los Carmenes last week, and United assumed control of the tie once more within six minutes at Old Trafford.

Cavani had underlined his predatory instincts during the 3-1 success at Tottenham, and the in-form Uruguayan scored his first European goal in United colours and 50th overall after meeting Paul Pogba’s knockdown to volley his low drive into the bottom corner.

Jesus Vallejo’s own goal in the final minute of normal time compounded Granada’s night with the Spaniards missing a spate of opportunities to keep the tie in the balance, but United progress to face Roma following their 3-2 aggregate win over Ajax.
