Manchester United vs Real Sociedad – UEFA Europa League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction.

The reverse fixture of the UEFA Europa League continues this Thursday the 25th of February, 2021 when Manchester United vs. Real Sociedad kicks off at 21:00 (GMT+1), venue: Old Trafford.

The Red Devils breezed past Newcastle United in their meeting on Sunday. Marcus Rashford's (30') remarkable footwork inside the 18-yard box saw him beat Newcastle's goal keeper – tucking the ball into the net from the near post with a wonderful strike. But six minutes later, a fantastic strike from Allan Saint-Maximin (36') levelled the score line. Minutes into the second half, a pass across the face of goal was picked up by Daniel James (57') who found the near post despite being closed down by defender and keeper. Later on, Bruno Fernandes (75' P) eventually made it 3-1 in United's favor with just over a quarter of an hour left on the clock until the game came to an end. Manchester United are unbeaten in their last six games across all competitions: WDWDWW ahead of this tie against Real Sociedad who are in 5th place on the Spanish La Liga table. Ole Gunnar Solskjær will be looking for at least a draw on Thursday knowing his side has at a foot in the next round of the competition. A 4—3—2—1 formation with Martial in attack is expected. Meanwhile, Paul Pogba is ruled out of this tie with a hamstring injury alongside Phil Jones. In addition, Donny van de Beek, Edison Cavani and Scott McTominay remain doubtful for this tie.

Real Sociedad defeated Alaves, 4-0 over the weekend – picking up their third win in six games across all competitions: LDWWLW. Coach Imanol Alguacil will be hoping his side can score a goal or two early into the game to put Manchester United on the edge – and perhaps, by some miracle, get a third before the interval. He is tipped to adopt a defensive 4—5—1 formation with Isak leading the attack. On availability, Mikel Oyarzabal and ex-Manchester United player, Adnan Januzaj will likely be in the starting line-up. Miguel Ángel Moya, Luca Sangalli and Joseba Zaldua are all ruled out of this tie.

In the reverse fixture, Manchester United defeated Real Sociedad, 4-0 – thanks to a brace from Bruno Fernandes (27' & 57') Marcus Rashford (65') and Daniel James (90').  Before that tie, both sides played a goal less draw in Nov. 2013. A month earlier, United defeated Real Sociedad by a lone goal.

A 2-1 victory for Manchester United is predicted at full-time.
