In the Europa league football, Manchester United on Friday beat Granada 2-0 in the first leg of the quarter-finals and took a big step towards the semi-finals. It was their away match against Granada. Marcus Rashford put United ahead when he superbly collected Victor Lindelof’s long pass and slid a finish past Granada goalkeeper Rui Silva. United doubled their lead late on when Bruno Fernandes squeezed a penalty past Silva after Yan Brice fouled the midfielder. The second leg will be played at Old Trafford next week.
