Thursday's Europa League predictions including Manchester United vs. Granada

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Thursday's Europa League fixtures, including Manchester United vs. Granada.

Manchester United will hope to ease into the semi-finals of the Europa League when they welcome Granada to Old Trafford for the second leg of their quarter-final tie on Thursday night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have one foot firmly in the final four after a 2-0 first leg win in Spain, during which Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes struck either side of the half-time whistle.

We say: Manchester United 2-1 Granada

Granada need not take any lessons in putting the ball into the back of the net on unfamiliar territory, and a reshuffled Red Devils rearguard could have Martinez eyeing a spectacular turnaround in the tie. However, an in-form United - albeit one bedevilled by injuries and suspensions - should have too much quality for their inconsistent visitors, so we can only envisage a comfortable second-leg triumph for Solskjaer's men on their way to the semi-finals.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Slavia Prague vs. Arsenal (Thursday, 8.00pm)

Arsenal will endeavour to keep their prospects of European glory alive when they travel to Slavia Prague for the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie on Thursday evening.

The Gunners were minutes away from claiming a 1-0 first-leg win after Nicolas Pepe's late opener, but Tomas Holes scrambled home right at the death to rescue a 1-1 draw and a priceless away goal for Slavia.

We say: Slavia Prague 1-2 Arsenal

The Gunners will hope to take inspiration from their memorable fightback against Benfica as they prepare to step out onto the turf at Slavia's fortress, and defeat here would most likely signal the end of Arsenal's prolonged stint in Europe. Arteta has far more injury concerns to deal with than he would have liked, but a strong showing at Bramall Lane was the perfect tonic for Arsenal before the biggest game of their season so far, and we think they have what it takes to beat Slavia on their own turf and advance to the semi-finals.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Roma vs. Ajax (Thursday, 8.00pm)

Following a fortunate first leg win in Amsterdam last week, Roma welcome Eredivisie leaders Ajax to Stadio Olimpico on Thursday, with a place in the Europa League semi-finals at stake.

Having ended the Dutch giants' 10-game unbeaten home run in the competition, the Giallorossi now seek to capitalise on their advantage from the opening game, with two valuable away goals in hand.

We say: Roma 1-1 Ajax

As the nation's last remaining representatives in Europe this season, Roma can keep the Italian flag flying thanks to their first leg advantage - with experienced campaigners Dzeko, Pedro and Mkhitaryan all poised to play a role in steering their team to a potential semi-final date with Manchester United.

A possible striker shortage for Ajax could keep the scoreline down in what is likely to be an open affair, so they may be left ruing the oversight that sees Sebastian Haller watching on from the sidelines rather than offering a focal point in attack.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Villarreal vs. Dinamo Zagreb (Thursday, 8.00pm)

Villarreal have a 1-0 lead over Dinamo Zagreb heading into the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final clash on Thursday evening.

Gerard Moreno's penalty just before half time proved the difference in last week's reverse fixture, but Dinamo have 90 minutes to respond at Estadio de la Ceramica.

We say: Villarreal 1-0 Dinamo Zagreb (2-0 on aggregate)

Dinamo Zagreb know how to pull off a shock result in Europe, as Tottenham know only too well.

However, the visitors have lost each of their last six games against Spanish opposition, while Villarreal have an incredible record in Europe this term, so we are backing Emery's men to get the job done.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
