Real Sociedad vs Manchester United: preview

A place in the last 16 is at stake when Real Sociedad host Manchester United in the final round of Europa League group games on Thursday. La Real head into the clash three points ahead of United, and will win Group E as long as they avoid defeat by two goals or more at Reale Arena.

Both teams are already certain to finish in the top two and progress to the knockout stages, but while the group winners will qualify automatically for March’s last 16, the runners-up will have to negotiate a playoff against a third-placed Champions League club in February.

La Real claimed a 1-0 victory in the teams’ opening Group E meeting, at Old Trafford in September. Brais Méndez’s second-half penalty earned the Txuri-urdin the three points – and Imanol Alguacil’s men have since maintained a 100% record in this term’s Europa League.

The last time the sides met in San Sebastián, meanwhile, United were 4-0 winners. In the last 32 of the 2020/21 Europa League, a Bruno Fernandes double, followed by goals by Marcus Rashford and Dan James, put the Red Devils on course for a comfortable aggregate triumph.
