Edinson Cavani set Manchester United on course for a comfortable victory against Granada as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side reached the Europa League semi-finals for the second successive season.
Marcus Rashford’s fine goal and a late Bruno Fernandes penalty in Spain last week put the Red Devils in control of the quarter-final tie heading into Thursday’s reverse fixture at an empty Old Trafford.
United extinguished any hope of a remarkable Granada turnaround when veteran Cavani volleyed home in the sixth minute, with Jesus Vallejo’s late own goal wrapping up a 2-0 win on the night, 4-0 on aggregate.
The reward is a mouth-watering semi-final clash against AS Roma and a reunion with Chris Smalling and Henrikh Mkhitaryan - starters when United won the Europa League in 2017.
United look odds-on to finish second in the Premier League, and while automatic Champions League qualification would have been a key remit for Solskjaer this season, the Europa League represents the perfect opportunity to win his first trophy as United manager.
