Cristiano Ronaldo and Alejandro Garancho – Real Sociedad and Manchester United

“Failed sharks from the Champions League will come in strong,” thus, Jose Mourinho, coach of Rome, mocked the possibility of Barcelona and Juventus relegating to the European League, and now Manchester United will face one of those teams.

United defeated its host Real Sociedad 1-0 on Thursday at Anoeta Stadium in the sixth round of the European League in Group E.

Alejandro Garancho scored the only goal of the match in the 17th minute.

At the same time, Sheriff Tiraspol defeated Omonia 1-0, with a goal from Rachid Akanebi.

With these results, Sociedad topped the group with a goal difference from its pursuers, United, after each of them collected 15 points, and both won at the other’s stadium with the same result.

But in the end, the goal difference for Sociedad was 8 against 7 for United.

Sheriff moved to the European Conference League after collecting six points to finish third.

Omonia bid farewell to European competitions after finishing fourth and did not collect any points.

Thus, Sociedad qualified for the second round of 16, while United will enter the play-off of the Round of 16.

United will face one of the relegated teams from the Champions League, which are Barcelona, ​​Ajax, Seville, Juventus, Bayer Leverkusen, Salzburg, Shakhtar Donetsk or Sporting Lisbon.

the summary of the match

The match started with offensive pressure from Sociedad, but without a real danger to United’s goal.

From a quick counter-attack, Cristiano Ronaldo passed Peña to Garancho, who hit the left-footed into the net to announce the first goal for his team.

Sociedad players demanded a penalty, but the referee did not award anything.

Andoni Gurusabel almost scored a goal, but David de Gea saved him, and then one of the players followed it, but the Spanish goalkeeper shone and made another save.

The second half was quiet for most of its events, and United coach Eric Ten Hag made two substitutions, with Marcus Rashford replacing Donny van de Beek, and Scott McTominay instead of Victor Lindelof.

Only here United completely dominated the midfield, with United playing a 3-1-3-3 manner.

Then Ten Hag had to include Harry Maguire instead of Garrancho, and Fred instead of Christian Eriksen.

But Maguire was in the center of the attack next to Ronaldo, not in defense.

United resorted to long balls, but Sociedad’s defense fought and there was no danger to its goal, so the match ended with the English team winning with a goal without a response.
