Real Sociedad v Man United.Ole Gunnar’s Manchester United travel to Spain to take on Real Sociedad in the Europa league round of 32 clash on Thursday night.
United will be aiming to continue their impressive form in the Europa league after being knocked out of the Champions league group stages. The Red Devils reached the finals of the Europa league last season only to be knocked out by Sevilla. They will be hoping to win it this time but have to face other great teams also looking for European glory. United’s Premier league season has been far from impressive despite them sitting second on the table and are having slim hopes of beating Manchester City to the trophy. The Europa league is a chance of rekindling their inspiration and winning it would no be too bad for United this time.
Real Sociedad started their La Liga season on a high and stayed top of the table for sometime before being overtaken but currently sit fifth. This will be a tough match especially for United who have had trouble whenever they face Spanish opposition.

Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay have travelled with the team to Italy but will face tests to see if they are fit to be involved. Juan Mata could also be involved in this one.
Our Prediction: 1-1 Draw
Real Sociedad are a good team both in attacking and defending. United will have a hard time against them and if they score it maybe an away goal. And since United find it hard to beat Spanish opposition, they should surely have a tough one especially since they are the away team. However,The Reds can surprise us with an impressive performance.
