CAN MANCHESTER UNITED WIN THE EUROPA LEAGUE?

English Premier League giants Manchester United are currently in a great position to win the UEFA Europa League title this season after having one foot set in the semi-final of the competition. The Red Devils reached the semi-finals of the Europa League last season but fell to a defeat against Spanish club Sevilla and got knocked out of the competition after a not-so-impressive showing.

They qualified for the Champions League last season and even after their fine start in the competition, they could not make it past the group stages and dropped into club football’s second-tier competition in Europe. This season, they have registered huge results in the competition and appear as one of the favorites to go home with the title, but can they actually clinch the trophy?

They recently played the first leg of their quarter-final fixture against Spanish opponents Granada and they secured a much-needed 2-0 win away from home, setting a return leg at Old Trafford with some huge confidence and comfort. A sublime Marcus Rashford goal in the first half of the tie and a stoppage-time penalty converted by Bruno Fernandes handed the Old Trafford outfit their deserved 2-0 win away from home.

Before Granada, United’s last two opponents in the competition were Real Sociedad and AC Milan. They defeated Sociedad 4-0 away from home and beat Milan 1-0 after finishing the first leg 1-1. They have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three away games and are looking like a team with huge confidence.

If they are able to move past Granada in the second leg, and go all the way to the final, then there is a huge chance Solksjær could lift his first trophy as Manchester United manager.
