Real Sociedad vs Man Utd: Preview, Team News, Likely Line-Ups & Predicted Score
Man Utd take on Real Sociedad tonight looking to go one step closer to securing qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League. Here a preview.
Manchester United take on Real Sociedad tonight looking to go one step closer to securing qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
United head into the game sitting top of Group A after winning two and drawing the other of their three games so far, so can all but ensure safe passage to the next phase with another victory tonight.
David Moyes men have found some form of late after a difficult start to the season and warmed up for this game with a 3-1 win away at Fulham on Saturday with Valencia, van Persie and Rooney all scoring inside the opening half hour, so the Red Devils should be full of confidence.
Sociedad on the other hand are sitting rock bottom of the group having lost all three games so far, meaning defeat tonight will seal their fate and end any slim qualification hopes.
The San Sebastian team did record an impressive 5-0 win at the weekend so they will hope to take that form into the game this evening.
United have injury worries to contend with after being forced to leave Danny Welbeck, Michael Carrick, Jonny Evans and Rafael back at home.
Carrick and Welbeck both missed the Fulham game through injury and were again unable to train on Monday, while Evans and Rafael were taken off at the weekend with back and ankle injuries.
The good news is that Tom Cleverley and Patrice Evra have been passed fit and were on the plane that left for Spain on Monday afternoon.
The hosts have a near fully-fit squad to choose from with only Esteban Granero missing through injury.
Real Sociedad 1-2 Man Utd: United seem to be finding some form and should be too strong for Sociedad.
