Granada knocked out Napoli and Molde en route the knockout stages of the Europa League and will face Ajax or Roma in the semi-final if they beat the Red Devils.

And Solskjaer has admitted he’s been impressed with Granada’s performances this season.

‘Well, it’s another difficult tie of course,’ Solskjaer told United’s official website.

“They’ve done well in La Liga and we know we’re up against a team that will be technically very good and tactically very good.

“They beat Molde so they must be very good!

Yeah, I’ll ring them [Molde] and get the reports as well, but we’ll do our own homework.

“I know that the analysis side and the scouting side in Molde do a very thorough job as well and I’ll watch those two games back of course because I just want to see Molde play again as well!.

“It’s the first time they [Granada] are in Europe and of course it’s a new experience for them and hopefully we can end it here.

“They’re a good side and we know that, as I said, technically the Spanish teams are so good and we’ve got to be so good defensively to win the ball off them.”
