Manchester United has an opportunity to take an even more commanding lead in Group A of the UEFA Champions League. They’re playing Real Sociedad at home, and the Spanish side has yet to win a game or earn a point in group play.
“We are coming to a legendary, almost mythical venue, but I think the atmosphere will lift us rather than have an adverse affect,” Real Sociedad coach Jagoba Arrasate said, via ESPN FC. ”The main thing is to try to get three points to help us try to get through to the next round.
“We have no points and need to get something tomorrow night. Every player needs to give 100 per cent and be on their very top form individually to give us a chance, and then maybe we can make a fist of it.”
United is struggling this season and Real Sociedad is looking to capitalize.
“We want to improve results, that’s obvious,” said United boss David Moyes. “We want to improve on our performance too, we gave the ball away too much in our last game and we have to do better when we are in possession. We have had periods of good play but maybe not continuously, which is something we have been working on in training.”
