Real Sociedad and Manchester United square battle at the Anoeta Stadium with a chance to finish first in Group E of the Europa League and determine who advances to the next round.
The only team in the 2022–23 Europe League to enter the final matchday with victories in all five of their group matches thus far is Sociedad, who most recently defeated Omonia 2-0 last week. However, recent 1-0 losses to Real Valladolid and Real Betis have hurt their La Liga performance.
Man United must win on Thursday by at least two goals to advance to the round of 16 and save one of the teams from being eliminated from the Champions League. Rashford's 100th goal for the team was all the Red Devils needed to defeat West Ham United 1-0 at the weekend, extending their unbeaten streak in all competitions to eight games. The Red Devils defense had only allowed one goal in their previous six games.
Attacking absences should harm the hosts severely, in contrast to a Man United team that has previously been a defensive force to be reckoned with. We can see the in-form Red Devils gaining the two-goal advantage they require to surpass Sociedad and take first position.
