Real Sociedad v Manchester United Betting Guide

Manchester United travel to Spain for a Champions League clash with Real Sociedad. Can United move closer to a place in the last sixteen

It appears as though Manchester United aren’t having the easiest of seasons, but seven points from just three Champions league encounters places them on top of their group.

Should they win in spain on Tuesday evening, a place in the knockout stage would look to be assured, and with the red devils hitting top gear with their easy 3-1 win over Fulham on Saturday, David Moyes can be forgiven for feeling positive.

Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie are certainly in top form, and firing on all cylinders, while Adnan Januzaj is making it difficult for Moyes to leave him out of the action. The United manager commented that he will be using Januzaj regularly for top level matches.

BetVictor offer the best price for the visitors to claim all three points from the encounter, with a price of 11/8. United beat the Spaniards at Old Trafford two weeks ago with a 1-0 scoreline, and it is expected that a very similar line up will face Sociedad in San Sebastian. The English champions will be looking to ensure that they make the final sixteen with games to spare.

Van Persie is once again hitting the back of the net regularly, and the Dutchman is well priced with Coral at 9/2 that he breaks the deadlock and scores the opening goal on Tuesday evening, while Rooney is offered at 13/2 that he accomplishes the same feat.

Real sociedad come into this game on the back of a comprehensive 5-0 victory over Osasuna, and certainly have decent form after a rather difficult start to their own campaign.

A total of five players featured on the scoresheet in that 5-0 victory, and the home team are priced at a generous 11/5 to take all three points. They will be confident going into this game, and will certainly be no pushovers, however they have lost all three games in their group stage and it will be a huge task for them to reach the knockout stage.

A draw is a creditable 12/5 and a good bet would appear to be 1-1 which is well priced at 6/1. United need only a single point to remain at the top of the group, so a draw would be a far from  surprising outcome.
