Stadium: Anoeta

TV: BT Sport

Real Sociedad and Manchester United have already qualified from Europa League Group E but top spot and an automatic last-16 berth is up for grabs.

The Red Devils need to win by more than one clear goal to avoid heading into the knockout round play-offs, where a Champions League third will be waiting.

With Erik ten Hag’s side now playing well, we feel 29/10 for them to achieve that feat is tempting enough to be our first Real Sociedad vs Man Utd prediction.

Don’t forget that the visitors romped to a 4-0 triumph at Anoeta in this competition a couple of seasons ago!

Real Sociedad Odds

Sociedad put themselves in pole position when beating United 1-0 at Old Trafford on Matchday 1 thanks to a Brais Mendez penalty.

The White and Blues have built on that victory by doing the double over both Sheriff and Omonia, with nine goals scored and only one conceded.

However, head coach Imanol Alguacil will be more than a little concerned by their domestic form following back-to-back La Liga defeats.

Real went down 1-0 when visiting Valladolid and then conceded a couple of late goals to lose 2-0 at home to Real Betis.

Barcelona won 4-1 at Anoeta early on this term and that was before star striker Alexander Isak was sold to Newcastle for £63million.

Sociedad are strong at the back but have been decimated by injuries up front, with Mikel Oyarzabal, Umar Sadiq, Momo Cho and Ander Barrenetxea all sidelined.

Alexander Sorloth only returned from illness over the weekend and looked in need of that outing, so this could be a good time for United to be visiting Spain.

Looking at the 14/5 for an away win to nil.

Manchester United Odds

United can be forgiven for the Matchday 1 loss to Sociedad, which came in the wake of the death of Queen Elizabeth II and that match was played in a subdued atmosphere.

Even so, Cristiano Ronaldo had a first-half header ruled out for offside and missed another good chance when the game was goalless.

Ronaldo will be keen to make amends here and did have a great record against Sociedad when playing for Real Madrid, scoring 15 times in nine straight wins!

Punters can get 14/5 for the 37-year-old to net in an away victory here and that makes it into our Real Sociedad vs Man Utd betting tips.

The Red Devils have since rattled off four straight wins in this pool, with nine goals scored and just two conceded against Omonia and Sheriff.

They are currently on an eight-match unbeaten run and are up to fifth in the Premier League following Sunday’s 1-0 defeat of West Ham.

David de Gea had to make several fine late saves against the Hammers, but United had controlled proceedings until coming under pressure in the closing stages.

We’ve been cleaning up with our correct score predictions on United matches, collecting at 13/2 for the West Ham result, 19/4 for a 3-0 win over Sheriff and 6/1 for a 1-1 draw at Chelsea.

Let’s try to keep the hot streak going by making 10/1 for a 2-0 away victory our final Real Sociedad vs Man Utd prediction.
