Manchester United is one of the favourites to win the UEFA Europa League this season. The Red Devils knocked out Serie-A giant AC Milan last night to cement their place in the UEFA Europa League’s quarter-final. In the quarter-final, they will face the Spanish club, Granada.
Manchester United has had a mixed season so far. After a poor start in the Premier League, they climbed to the top spot for some time. At present, they are second in the league, 11 points behind the rival Manchester City.
In the UEFA Champions League, they missed their chance to secured their place in the knockout stage and dropped down to the UEFA Europa League. In the Round of 32, United beat Real Sociedad and AC Milan in Round of 16.
However, last season United lost all 3 semi-finals of the tournament. In the Europa League, they lost to Sevilla, who went on to become champion last season, beating Inter Milan. The Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will surely want to change the fortune this time.
The Red Devils are trophyless in the last 3 seasons. The last trophy they won was in the 2016-17 season when they crowned champion in this competition under Jose Mourinho. They will surely try to do the same this season as well.
