Manchester United vs Real Sociedad Match Preview and Team News
United usually does well when dropping down to this level in Europe, having lifted the trophy in 2017 before reaching the semis in 2020 and the final the following year. During that last campaign, they met Sociedad in the round of 32, drawing 0-0 at this venue prior to a 4-0 triumph in Spain. The Red Devils began life under new boss Erik ten Hag with two Premier League defeats but have since picked United are now just three points off the top of the table, although Ten Hag has moved to cool expectations that his side can challenge for the title. That hot streak includes a 2-1 triumph over Liverpool here, 1-0 wins at Southampton and Leicester, plus Sunday’s 3-1 defeat of high-flying Arsenal at this venue. Jadon Sancho is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Scott McTominay found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy.
Sociedad has qualified from their group for the past two seasons, finishing second behind Napoli and Monaco. Last term, the White and Blues then found RB Leipzig too strong, drawing 2-2 away but losing 3-1 in Spain. This season’s La Liga results have again highlighted how this is a decent team but just short of elite level. They have secured 1-0 wins at Cadiz and Elche but were beaten 4-1 at Anoeta Stadium by Barcelona and had to come from behind to draw 1-1 with Atletico Madrid there on Saturday. Alexander Sorloth is a great player, many teams are interested in this guy, he has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. Mohamed-Ali Cho plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. Real Sociedad boss Imanol Alguacil has to choose a team with limited availability. Carlos Fernández (Hamstring Injury), Robin Le Normand (Metatarsal Fracture), Martín Merquelanz (Knee Injury) and Mikel Oyarzabal (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
