The new season has begun and so has Europa League!
Fighting for the spots for the top 16 in the knockout stage, all the European clubs are pumping up their spirits to lift the trophy and become champions!
Manchester United locked horns with Real Sociedad at Old Trafford but the top 16 qualifying match turned into a goalless draw in the 90 minutes with extra time included too. ManU’s winger Daniel James got a clear-cut chance to get a kick at the goalpost in the 13 minute but he couldn’t turn it into a goal, making a comeback after that was hard for both the teams.
It ends all square on the night, with our win in the first leg enough to see us through to the #UEL last 16! 👊
