Granada weren’t the lucky side last night as Man United stunned the first leg of their tie.
United are two goals up already but Diego Martinez believes his boys can still have the last laugh.
With Marcus Rashford opening the scoreline, Bruno Fernandes finished the job with a late minute penalty to secure their victory.
Granada on other hand were the unlucky side as all of their 32 crosses into United’s box, none was converted.
But the Spanish side’s manager believes Man United shouldn’t think it’s over as he and his boys would be returning better.
Speaking after the game, Martinez said; In the second half we deserved the goal.

“This team is always going to compete to the maximum and we want to go back to win it and pass the tie.
“Aspiring to the perfect match is a utopia, but it is the best way to aspire to win against rivals like today.”
Granada also indeed did put up a great fight with United who only managed to net after a hard fought game.
With this in check, Martinez disclosed he is proud of his boy’s team work despite failing to pick any point from last night.
“I am very proud of the team’s work.
“In general we defended very well.
“My general analysis is that the scoreboard does not reflect the level of performance that we have had against a team that is completely different from us.”
