The Spanish side come into the game in strong form and we are backing them to avoid defeat when they face the Red Devils in the Europa League. Manchester United face Real Sociedad on Thursday evening in the Europa League with both sides having to travel to Turin for the first leg of this last-32 tie. Current coronavirus restrictions prohibit the entry of English teams to Spain, so the La Liga side have lost any potential home advantage by having the match moved to northern Italy.
Manchester United travel to Turin to face Real Sociedad in the first leg of our UEFA Europa League round of 32, at the Allianz Stadium. It’s a competition we know well, having won it in 2017 and made it to the semi-finals last term. If the Reds want to qualify for the latter stages of the tournament this time around, we’ll have to navigate past tricky opposition in Real Sociedad, a side who enjoyed spells at the top of La Liga earlier this season. Ahead of our trip to Italy for Thursday’s game, here’s all the key pre-match details.
Mikel Oyarzabal looks set to start for Real Sociedad after playing 79 minutes in his side’s the 1-0 victory over Getafe at the weekend on his return from injury.
However, long-term absentees Miguel Moya and Luca Sangalli are still missing.
The Red Devils won this competition for the first time in 2017 and then, last season, reached the semi-finals where they lost to eventual winners Sevilla. This season, they weren’t met to be in this competition but enter this round as a Champions League drop-out. Man United amassed nine points from their first four games in Group H but defeats on matchday five and six, to Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig, saw them crash out. Now in the UEFA Europa League, Ole Gunnar Solskjær will be aiming to win his first trophy as Man United Head Coach.
