Real Sociedad vs Man United live stream: How to watch UEFA Europa League football online
Premier League giants Manchester United travel to Turin to take on Real Sociedad of La Liga in this UEFA Europa League round of 32 first-leg tie. Don't miss a moment with our Real Sociedad vs Man United live stream guide.
Today's away side Manchester United enter the Europa League at this first knockout round after finishing third in their UEFA Champions League group. The Red Devils' three wins in that group were not enough to escape the group and continue in Europe's premier competition. A 3-2 defeat to second-place finishers RB Leipzig in their final Champions League game for this season sealed their fate.
Last season, United made it all the way to the semi-finals of the Europa League where they lost out to eventual winners Sevilla. Ole Gunnar Solskjær's men will no doubt want to go one better this season and earn a place in the final.
Real Sociedad ended the Europa League group stage in second place with nine points. The Royals have not competed in a European competition since the 2017/18 season where they exited the competition at this round of 32 stage, something Imanol Alguacil's team will want to better on this attempt.
Manchester United currently sit in second place in the Premier League after, though the side have only won one game in their last five in the league which has seen local rivals Man City extend their leade at the top to ten points. That sole win was a barnstorming 9-0 win against Southampton, a joint record-holder for winning margin.
Real Sociedad come into today's game off the back of two wins and four unbeaten in La Liga. La Real sit in fifth place, though they are some way off the Champions League places with a seven-point deficit between them and fourth place Sevilla despite having played one game more.
Ordinarily, Manchester United would be touching down in Spain for this game though local restrictions on travel from the UK mean that an alternative venue was required in a country accepting arrivals from England. The Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy — home of Juventus — was selected as the neutral venue and it remains to be seen how the absence of any home-field advantage affects the game.
