UEFA Europa League action returns to Old Trafford today as Premier League giants Manchester United take on La Liga's Real Sociedad in the second leg of this round of 32 tie. Don't miss a moment with our Man United vs Real Sociedad live stream guide.

These two sides met in the first leg of this round of 32 matchup just a week ago in a game that saw Man United emerge the victors. A 4-0 rout at the neutral Juventus Stadium venue featured a Bruno Fernandes brace topped off by Marcus Rashford and Daniel James goals to all but secure a spot in the round of 16 for United.

Real Sociedad will be playing purely for pride as they take to the turf at Old Trafford, though Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær is expected to make a raft of changes to his starting line up as he rests players for upcoming games. It would be a shock to see this result go anything but United's way, but nothing is certain until the final whistle.

In between last week's meeting and today's, both sides have been in action in their respective domestic leagues, each recording convincing victories.

The Royals bounced back from their 4-0 Europa League drubbing with a 4-0 win of their own against La Liga strugglers Alavés. A third La Liga victory on the trot was enough to propel Imanol Alguacil's team into the European spots after Villareal dropped points at Bilbao.

The Red Devils notched a 3-1 win at home to Newcastle in the Premier League at the weekend, keeping them in second place. Fernandes, Rashford, and James all found the back of the net once again.
