Match preview

The most celebrated 1-0 defeat in Real Sociedad’s 113 year history.

On Thursday night, la Real welcomed Manchester United to San Sebastián, needing to avoid a 2+ goal defeat to top their Europa League group.

Man United led early, but could not find a second, meaning los Txuri-Urdin held onto top spot by virtue of goal difference.

Imanol Alguacil’s team therefore won’t be in European action until 9 March, so can solely focus on league form until then.

Last Sunday night, Real Sociedad were beaten 2-0 by Real Betis, both goals coming right at the end.

Having been beaten by Real Valladolid the week before, la Real have slipped down to fifth, desperate to avoid another defeat here.

Gennaro Gattuso won four of his first eight games in charge, but los Che are now winless in four outings.

Last weekend, los Murciélagos conceded deep into stoppage time, so were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Barcelona at Mestalla.

This was proceeded by draws with Elche and Sevilla and a home defeat to Mallorca which, in short, is not good.

Thus, Real Sociedad will fancy their chances of victory at Anoeta.
