Granada star Domingos Quina has warned they will not fear Manchester United despite being huge underdogs for their Europa League tie.
The La Liga outfit face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘s side in the first leg of their quarter-final clash on Thursday.
Granada dumped out Serie A challengers Napoli in the previous rounds and have defied the odds to compete in Europe with a journey that saw has seen the club rise from the third-tier of Spanish football in just four years.
Now, they face their biggest test in Manchester United but Quina, on loan from Watford, has warned they will play without expectation.
“Of course. This is football. You never know,” Quina told MailOnline.
“Against Napoli (in the round of 32), they were the favourites but we got the job done we just need to keep believing and dreaming and everything will be possible.
“We could surprise a few people for sure, we will fight until the end.
“We are a really passionate team, we have big dreams and goals – the manager makes us feel like everything is possible.”
Quina joined Granada on loan from the Hornets in the January transfer window and is therefore ineligible to feature in the Europa League.
The midfielder admitted his disappointment at being denied the chance to pit his skill against Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and co.
“I’m not going to lie, I am little bit disappointed. I like playing in the big occasions, against the big teams, in the big stadiums,” he said.

“I’d learn a lot because United are a top team with world-class footballers – it will be a great experience for my teammates.
“But I’ll be there supporting them. Granada is like a family, it doesn’t matter (if I’m not playing) the team always comes first.”
