Nyon, Switzerland, Mar 19 (efe-epa).- Manchester United will face Granada in the Uefa Europa League quarter-final while Arsenal will take on Slavia Prague, who have knocked out Leicester and Glasgow Rangers in the previous two rounds.

Granada face a stern test in Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, which is going from strength to strength and eliminated Milan at the San Siro with a goal from Paul Pogba in the round of 16.

United overcame another Spanish team, Real Sociedad, in the round of 32.

The other remaining LaLiga club, Villarreal, were more fortunate in the draw that was held in Nyon, Switzerland, after being paired with Dinamo Zagreb, who stunned Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur. EFE-EPA
