Granada form and stats

When playing at home in the La Liga, Granada have managed 8 wins, 3 draws and suffered 4 defeats from 15 games. This match is a Europa League match, and the hometeam has the total statistics 8 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in this competition.

Granada's previous game was also a home match, the defeat 0-3 versus Villarreal. Heartbreak before that as Granada lost 1-2 at Valencia's place.

The penalty miss from Jorge Molina in the defeat against Villarreal was a source of irritation for some fans, but these things happen.

The manager D. Martínez Penas will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Real Valladolid in only three days.

Granada has scored 20 league goals at home this season, in 15 matches. On the other hand, Granada have conceded 19 goals. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 1 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.

Manchester United form and stats

United was sent out of Europa League in the semi-finals last season.

Manchester United have an excellent away record in the Premier League so far with 9-6-0 from 15 games. The mentioned statistics is only from the league, looking at the Europa League stats, they have 2 wins, 2 draws and 0 losses both home and away. Things are running smoothly for United who hasn't tasted defeat in their last ten matches, regardless of venue and tournament. Their last defeat was against Sheffield United. United are enjoying a nice run from their away games now, having played 22 in a row without losing.

Manchester United go into this game after a win, the home game against Brighton & Hove Albion that ended 2-1. A 1-3 defeat away at Leicester City before that.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the United manager O. Solskjær as the team has another away game coming up in only three days, this time against Tottenham Hotspur.

United are not goal shy away from home in the league, finding the net 27 times in 15 away games so far. It's not easy to score on United as they have only conceded 13 goals from these away games.

The UEFA Europa League, abbreviated as UEL and commonly referred to as just the Europa League, is an annual football club competition organised by UEFA. It is the second-tier competition for football clubs in Europa, beneath the UEFA Champions League in value and importance. Teams qualify through their performance in their national leagues and cup competitions. Some teams qualify from the Champions League; more precisely the teams who are knocked out in the playoff qualifying round and the third-place finishers of the group stage. The winner of the Europa League qualifies for the Champions League in their next competitive season.
