Sociedad is looking good in the last two rounds back in LaLiga, as they grabbed the momentum, and recorded two consecutive victories.
In their latest clash on the road to Getafe, they did just enough to take a narrow 0:1 victory, keeping their strength for the upcoming European clash. They took the lead in the 30th minute over Isak, while the hosts were simply too passive during the whole encounter, as they weren’t able to create a single decent opportunity.
Sociedad occupies 5th spot in the rankings, but they need to keep it up with positive results, as Villarreal is just behind the corner with two points less.
The Spaniards are set to miss injured goalkeeper Moya (1/0), forward Fernandez (3/0), and a couple of those who didn’t play yet anyway.
The Red Devils failed to meet the expectations in their last Premier League match on the road against underdogs from WBA, as they come with an unexpected 1:1 draw.
The guests conceded an early goal in the 2nd minute but managed to level up just before halftime when Fernandes showed some great individual skill. Despite the fact that Manchester dominated in the second part, the ball simply couldn’t found its way behind the goalkeeper, so the result remained unchanged.
They are currently at 2nd place in the general rankings, seven points in deficit compared to the leaders from Manchester City.
United will miss midfielder Pogba (19/3) and defender Jones who didn’t play yet in the season anyway.
Both prefer quite an open style
Manchester needs little to score, which can be especially said for the matches where they have an open-minded opponent. Sociedad definitely knows that they can’t afford to stay at the back, neither it’s their style. With a bit of luck, we might be able to get the winner way before the last phase of the clash.
