The Analyst says...
Real Sociedad visited Getafe and won a close 1-0. That was their 2nd straight win in La Liga and are now in 5th spot, 7 points behind Sevilla in the Champions League spot. They can still do it, but it's going to be hard now as Sevilla are playing really well this season. Things will be a little harder also in their Europa League as they will face Manchester United who are one of the favorites to win this competition.
Manchester United went to West Brom in their last match and drew 1-1. They were really playing well for the last month or so and were at the top of the table for a little while. However, they only had 6 points out of the possible 18 in their last 5 matches, and are now 7 points behind their neighbor Manchester City. The Red Devils are in Europa League due to demotion from Champions League as they finished 3rd in their group stage.
Real Sociedad have lost their Home advantage as both teams will now travel to Turin, Italy due to COVID-19 restrictions. Mikel Oyarzabal were previously ruled out of both legs but has reportedly recovered from injury so that would be a big boost for Sociedad. There have been Under 2.5 goals scored in 5 of Real Sociedad's last 6 Europa League matches, and even though they will be playing against a good Manchester United team, I think there will be limited oppotunities in this match, that's why I'm backing the Unders.
Under 2.5 Goals
