Manchester United kicked off their campaign in the Europa League on Thursday night at Old Trafford stadium, falling to Real Sociedad by a score of 1-0. The game began with a moment of silence in remembrance of Queen Elizabeth II of England, who passed away earlier that day at the age of 96. She is widely regarded as one of the world’s most respected individuals. As a result of her unexpected passing, European football and UEFA expressed their thanks as well as their condolences for her Majesty.

Although both teams gave their all in an effort to come out on top, it was just not Man United’s day to win. They were unable to win the game even when playing in front of their friends and family at their own stadium, which was a devastating blow. Thousands of people who support Manchester United came to the game with the intention of enjoying themselves, but after it was over, they departed the stadium in a state of extreme dissatisfaction. On the other side, Real Sociedad and their supporters enjoyed a fantastic day as a result of their victory over Man United in the match. The competition between these two teams was intense and difficult. Both of them engaged in head-to-head competition, which resulted in a highly anticipated game.

A really bad day for Manchester United and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Throughout the entirety of the match, Manchester United held 56% of the possession, while Real Sociedad could only muster 44% of it.   Man United had a pass completion percentage of 84%, finished with 498 successful passes, and were granted 5 corner kicks. On the other side, Real Sociedad was successful in completing 407 passes, with a pass accuracy of 77%, and was granted 3 corners in this match. Even though Manchester United was good in every facet of the game, their performance was not enough to win because they were unable to score any goals. On the other side, Real Sociedad was able to beat Manchester United thanks to a goal that they scored during this match. After everything is said and done, the winner is determined only by who scored the most goals.


In ther 1st half no goal scored and ended the 1st half with the score of 0-0. In the second half 1 goal scored and that was by Real Sociedad which was a winning goal for them. A questionable penalty kick taken by Baris Mendez in the 59th minute resulted in a goal for Real Sociedad, which helped them win the match. Even though Manchester United had possession of the ball for 56% of the game, it did not help them win the game against Real Sociedad.

After their game against Brentford on August 13, in which they were defeated by a score of 4-0, Erik ten Hag felt a deep sense of despondency and hopelessness. Because of the match, he decided to picked  up Cristiano Ronaldo against Real Sociedad on Thursday, despite the fact that Ronaldo had been rested for the previous encounter against Brentford.

In the 36th minute of the game, Cristiano Ronaldo gave it his all to score a goal with his head, but the referee blew the offside flag. The fact that he didn’t score a single goal this season was a major source of frustration for him. It’s not really that important, but he couldn’t give his team the victory they needed.

The match between Manchester United and Crystal Palace, which was scheduled to take place on Sunday and was part of the Premier League, has been postponed out of respect for the late Queen Elizabeth II. Manchester United will play their second encounter against Sheriff in the Europa League on September 15, Thursday, at 10.45 p.m., at the Bolshaya Sportivnaya Arena stadium.
