Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope Manchester United can leave Granada with a positive result this evening

Europa League quarter-finals top the bill tonight as Manchester United and Arsenal look to put one foot in the semis. 

The Red Devils and the Gunners are expected to advance to the final four by negotiating their way past Granada and Slavia Prague respectively.

As well as turning the spotlight on those first-leg contests, we also have the second part of our team-by-team Indian Premier League season preview for you to enjoy.

So settle back and read up on all you need to know before the first delivery tomorrow.

Granada vs Manchester United (8pm)

Manchester United resume their promising Europa League campaign against Granada as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hunts his first trophy as Red Devils boss. 

United now find themselves clear favourites for glory in the competition after several high-profile sides rather surprisingly exited the competition in the two previous knockout rounds. 

They have also benefitted from what appears a favourable draw against mid-table La Liga outfit Granada — although the Spaniards have already accounted for Italian giants Napoli on their way to this stage. 

Diego Martinez’s men should also be suited to English opposition, given no less than five of their stars have enjoyed spells at Premier League clubs. 

We have got the lowdown on some familiar faces who may line up in the Granada ranks this evening.

Arsenal vs Slavia Prague (8pm)

While United look all but assured of a Premier League top-four finish, Arsenal’s only remaining hope of featuring in next season’s Champions League appears to be Europa League glory. 

The Gunners face a Slavia Prague side who have already dumped out British duo Leicester and Rangers in the previous two rounds, meaning the Czech champions head to the Emirates confident of causing a first-leg upset.

While Mikel Arteta’s men have struggled for consistency this term, one constant during their positive performances has been the eye-catching efforts of Real Madrid loanee Martin Odegaard. 

With the Norwegian already having established himself as a key player in North London, we take a closer look at what the 22-year-old star brings to the table — and whether Arsenal can keep hold of him permanently.
