Real Sociedad host Manchester United at the Reale Arena in the final round of the Europa League group stages, with kick-off scheduled at 6.45pm local time.
The Basque side are currently facing a crisis in their squad as key players – including David Silva, Umar Sadiq and Mikel Oyarzabal – are sidelined with injuries.
Imanol Alguacil is expected to make a couple of changes to the side that lost to Real Betis 2-0 in La Liga on Sunday. Pablo Marín will most likely make way for Asier Illarramendi, while Igor Zobeldia will probably partner with Robin Le Normand instead of Jon Pacheco at the heart of Real Sociedad’s defensive line.
Predicted Real Sociedad lineup against Manchester United
AS predict that Alguacil will field the following starting XI against Manchester United: Álex Remiro – Aritz Elustondo, Igor Zubeldia, Robin Le Normand, Diego Rico – Brais Méndez, Martín Zubimendi, Asier Illarramendi, Mikel Merino – Carlos Fernández, Alexander Sørloth.
