Real Sociedad v Man United: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and how to watch the Europa League clash on BT Sport

Manchester United drop into the Europa League and face a tricky test to make the last 16 as they head to Real Sociedad for the first leg of their Round of 32 tie.

Published: 16 February 2021 - 2.14pm

Manchester United must dust themselves off and go again in Europe. After crashing out of the Champions League at the group stages by finishing third to Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig, United drop into the Europa League Round of 32.

And things will not be easy for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men as they face La Liga high-fliers Real Sociedad first up in the Round of 32 with the first leg at the Anoeta Stadium.

The clash also represents a chance for old foe David Silva to come face-to-face with United once again this time in the blue-and-white of Sociedad. 

Will Silva's Sociedad strike a potentially lethal blow and see off United on home soil? Or will Solskjaer's men find their feet on the continent again and take control ahead of the return leg at Old Trafford?
