The UEFA Europa League action resumes this week with the knock-outs being played at various venues across Europe starting Thursday.

The must-watch match of the first leg of the Round of 32 will be held in Turin, Italy where former champions Manchester United will take on Real Sociedad in what will be an away match for the Red Devils

Spanish side Real Sociedad have been forced to move their home fixture to a neutral venue following the local government’s latest restrictions in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær has labelled the tie as a ‘Champions League draw’ and the one ‘that will definitely keep everyone on their toes’. Watch Real Sociedad vs Manchester United live streaming and on TV in India.

Real Sociedad were among the early pacesetters in La Liga this season and were even on top of the league when the UEL Round of 32 draws took place late last year. But they have slipped down the rankings since.

On the other hand, Man United haven’t won a game against a team from Spain in their previous nine attempts, registering six losses and three draws.

Meanwhile, Arsenal will travel to Rome to play their first leg tie against Benfica at the Stadio Olimpico.

The Gunners have had a torrid time in the English Premier League with losses to Wolves and Aston Villa denting their run. 

But Arsenal can take heart from their 4-2 win over Leeds last weekend when they line-up against Benfica, which has the UEL’s leading goal scorer, Pizzi, in their mix.
