This is undoubtedly one of the standouts from this round of Europa League fixtures as favourites Man United take on an extremely talented Real Sociedad side.
The two have gone in different directions over the last few months with United hitting a low point having dropped down from the Champions League after the group stage, only to lose just two of their 19 matches since then.
Sociedad made a flying start to La Liga and were leading the way just 10 matches ago, though they’ve now won just four of 19 games going back into late November.
There maybe early signs of momentum building once again for the Spaniards though with back-to-back wins as they head into this game.
This is just Sociedad’s third Europa League campaign this century and they’ve never managed to get past this stage, while even this year they only managed to scrape through the groups with two wins from their six games, and considering they played in a group with AZ Alkmaar and HNK Rijeka that doesn’t stand them in good stead against a European giant like Man United.
