Manchester United vs Real Sociedad
Date: Thursday, 25 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have been the best team in England this season behind their arch-rivals City. However, the league title is almost out of their hands, and the only remaining hope for a meaningful trophy remains the Europa League.
They are desperate for a continental triumph, especially after Liverpool won their sixth CL the season before.
This Thursday, they are in a very promising scenario though. They had won the first leg in emphatic manner, and that too on the road.
Meanwhile, The Royals who are placed fifth in the La Liga, are going through an inconsistent run, and have been struggling on the road for almost the whole of this season.
On top of that, they also have a worrying h2h record against this rival over the years.
By the looks of things, expect Manchester United to easily progress to the Round of 16.
Manchester United vs Real Sociedad: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 0-4 win for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, on the road.
- They have a 100% unbeaten record against this rival.
- They have kept clean sheets in 100% of match-ups till now.
- The latest encounter at this stadium had ended in a 1-0 win for the hosts.
Manchester United vs Real Sociedad Prediction
Imanol Alguacil’s men have to score at least four times in the ninety minutes to at least extend the match to extra time, and it needs to be noted that they have a 100% winless record against the Red Devils.
Not just that, the Spaniards are yet to score a goal against this opposition.
It goes without saying that the Royals will be under pressure to go after goals right from the get-go, and this will leave ample spaces for Solskjaer’s men to target.
For the reasons, expect Manchester United to secure an easy win this Thursday.
