Bet on Real Sociedad v Manchester United here

Top spot is up for grabs in Spain on Thursday evening as Manchester United (6/5) take to the continent hoping to register the victory and goal-swing needed to leapfrog their La Liga opponents and secure themselves a seeded position in the draw for the last 32 of the Europa League.

Both sides, who sit fifth in their respective domestic divisions, are already assured of progression from Group E, with United bouncing back from their matchday one defeat in the reverse fixture courtesy of four successive victories, whilst Real Sociedad (23/10) head into the meeting looking to protect their 100 percent winning record.

The home side have been in fine fettle this campaign notching up eight successive wins in all competitions over a barnstorming five-week period across September and October, but there is a sense that the wheels are beginning to fall off, and Erik ten Hag’s rejuvenated United side will be desperate to capitalise.

Back-to-back league defeats for the Spaniards, against Valladolid and Real Betis, have slammed the breaks on what has been an impressive start to the 2022/23 campaign for Imanol Alguacil’s men, and whilst they have been even more prolific on the continent, I’m backing United to prevail by a couple of goals (10/3 - Handicap Result, -1) in this one and snatch top spot.

Since the 6-3 demolition derby defeat at the Etihad Stadium last month, the Red Devils have galvanised themselves, embarking upon an eight-game unbeaten run, all whilst steadying the ship at the back, chalking up five clean sheets in their last six outings.

A 3-0 home win over FC Sherriff in their last Europa league outing means that a victory in the Basque country, with a winning margin of two or more goals, will ensure they avoid the prospect of taking on an eliminated Champions League side in the next stage of the competition.

Anything other than that outcome and United could very well be colliding with Barcelona, Juventus or Ajax at the turn of the New Year.

Backing up the BOOST >>

Match result will be Manchester United:

The 2016/17 Europa League winners' are eight unbeaten, and look a different animal to the side that succumbed to a surprising 1-0 defeat the last time the teams met at Old Trafford back in September. The Spanish outfit capitalised on a hugely sub-par performance from ten Hag’s men on that occasion, but given their newfound confidence, coupled together with Sociedad’s recent struggles, the Red devils are heavily fancied to get the job done on Thursday.

Marcus Rashford to Score Anytime in the Match:

Rashford has bagged in each of his last two appearances for United, in the victories over FC Sherriff and West Ham United at the end of last month, and is likely to retain his spot in the side in Spain, with fellow attackers Jadon Sancho, Antony and Anthony Martial all absent from the travelling party. The England frontman has netted seven times in 15 appearances this season, including three in three in the Europa League, and will hope to maintain his hot-streak on Thursday.
Over 8 Corners in the Match for Both Teams Combined:

United have enjoyed eight or more corners alone in each of their last two Europa League outings, whilst four of their five games in the competition to date will have seen the ‘Over 8 Corners’ threshold surpassed. There will be plenty of attacking prowess on show for both sides, and it would be out of sync with recent Manchester United encounters for this leg of the Bet Builder not to come in.
