Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms trio of Man United stars, including Cavani, will miss Real Sociedad 2nd-leg

Man United vs Real Sociedad

Manchester United will get their Europa League campaign back underway in just over 24 hours’ time.

The Red Devils were drawn against Spanish outfit Real Sociedad in the last-32 of the Europa League.

On paper, United did look to have been handed quite a tough draw. Sociedad have had a fine 2020/21 in La Liga to date and have lost just four times in 24 outings.

However, in the first meeting between the pair last week, Man United completely overpowered the Erreala.

A brace from star man, Bruno Fernandes, coupled with strikes from Daniel James and Marcus Rashford, saw United notch a staggering four goals in the away leg, with Sociedad unable to find a reply.

As a result, it would take an absolutely spectacular collapse on United’s part at Old Trafford on Thursday for them not to make it into the last-16.
