Diego Martinez’s side are gracing this stage of European competition for the first time in their history, with the record books being re-written in a memorable 2020-21 campaign.
Molina believes they can go even further, but concedes that they have been handed the toughest of tests against United.
He added: “Well, we got the most complicated draw, the favourite for the title. But that is what everyone wants. Who would have thought that we would be playing a quarter-final against Manchester United?
“They are a great of Europe, a historic club, but we are going to play the tie with the conviction that we can progress. It will be difficult but if we do things well we will have a chance.”
Pressed further on how Granada will approach a meeting with the Red Devils, Molina said: “With respect, obviously, because if not we would hamper ourselves. But with the utmost enthusiasm and conviction that we can progress.”
The bigger picture
Granada have already sent Serie A giants Napoli packing from the Europa League this season.
They were seen off in the first knockout round, before then disposing of Molde – Solskjaer’s former employers – in the last 16.
Four goalkeepers are in the group but there is no Eric Bailly, who tested positive for COVID-19 recently, nor Anthony Martial, after Ole revealed the France international could be out for the rest of the season with a knee problem.
Juan Mata is back in the fold and will be hoping for a run-out in his homeland, after missing that opportunity when our ‘away’ victory over Real Sociedad was played in Turin, Italy.
