Manchester United vs Real Sociedad Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester United have a golden chance to salvage their season by proceeding to the last 16 Europa tie as they welcome home Real Sociedad for the second leg. The match schedules for Thursday at Emirates with kickoff at 11 pm.

The Red Devils thrashed Sociedad 4-0 in the first leg and expected to advance to the next round with minimal difficulty.

Ole Gunnar might be looking to rotate the squad this fixture even after getting a scare during their clash with Newcastle. Despite an inspired performance from relegation-threatened Magpies, Bruno Fernandez, Marcus Rashford and Daniel James came through to end in a 3-1 win.

Solskkaer’s side is currently unbeaten in seven matches across all competitions and have won five in that run. They have failed to score only once in their 11 matches at Old Trafford. Finding the back of the net at least three times in their last four on home soil.

United have not managed to string three wins consecutively across all competitions since December. Even though a repeat of last week’s 4-0 thrashing is unlikely, Gunnar will be looking to make changes to their starting XI.

Sociedad was considered favorites for the La Liga title race for the first half of the season. However, a run of fixtures leaves the side battling between domestic and European commitments. The Spanish side responded with the same scoreline against Alaves.
