It’s time for Europa League! Real Sociedad hosts Manchester United in probably the most interesting game from the 1st legs of the 1/16 finals of the tournament. The game is set to start at 17:55 GMT 0 at Allianz Stadium in Munich, Germany.

Tough battle in EL group

Real Sociedad managed to qualify for the knock-out stage of Europa League by finishing in the 2nd place in Group F. The group consisted of Napoli, AZ Alkmaar and Rijeka. It was a tough battle for the first two places and despite the 3 consecutive draws of Sociedad at the end, the team finally made it. There is no news for any absences or suspensions within the squad.

Disappointment for Man Utd in CL

Man Utd was on the verge of qualifying for Champions League 1/8 finals but conceded to defeated by Leipzig 3-2 in the last round. The Red Devils received a consolation award with Europa League. Let’s see the motivation of Ole’s boys after the unconvincing performances lately. Unfortunately, Edinson Cavani, Dony van de Beek and Paul Pogba cannot take part in the upcoming game against Sociedad.

Final thoughts

Sociedad should do all it takes to score at least a goal in their “home” game (the event is set to be played at Allianz Arena). We think this is very likely to happen considering the vulnerabilities of Manchester United in the last matches. The guests are considered the favourite, so they will score as well.
