Manchester United vs Real Sociedad Team News
Given the score line from the first leg, it remains to be seen how strong the respective line-ups from the two managers. United are without Paul Pogba and Phil Jones, while Edinson Cavani, Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay will be assessed.
The visitors are missing defenders Joseba Zaldua and Aritz Elustondo, although forward Carlos Fernandez could return from injury.
Manchester United vs Real Sociedad Preview
The first leg saw the Spanish side outclassed by their English opponents, with La Real surprisingly poor all over the pitch.
Imanol Alguacil’s side followed up that disappointment by producing a thumping 4-0 win at the weekend against Alaves and on their day, the Basques play some of the best football in Spain.
It is surely too big an ask for them to be able to produce a comeback, although restoring some pride by getting on the scoresheet should be well within their grasp.
La Real had scored in the previous 10 games prior to the first leg, and after their weekend win, there should be interest in backing them to contribute to another high-scoring game.
Manchester United vs Real Sociedad Tips and Predictions
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is available at 19/20 (1.95) and looks like a strong option for the game.
Backing the visitors to net over 1.5 goals at 13/8 (2.62) could also be of interest, with United conceding two or more goals in four of their last eight home games.
