Rafael: Sociedad a great chance for United
Manchester United defender Rafael believes Wednesday’s meeting with Real Sociedad is a great chance to push towards Champions League progression.
The Premier League holders host the Spanish side on Wednesday as the look to continue their unbeaten run.
For United’s Brazilian full-back, the first meeting this week with Jagoba Arrasate’s men is an opportunity for the team to confirm their unbeaten start in Europe so far, reports Football Espana.
“We have done well so far. We were pleased with our performance against Bayer Leverkusen and then it was important to come away from Donetsk with a good result,” considered Rafael to United Review.
“We managed to do that. We have played some good football in the competition so far and we want to keep that going.
“It is a great chance for us. We need to win the game to give us confidence for the match in Spain. That's all we're focused on.
“They will come here to win. Spanish teams aren't the type to sit back and defend. They will always attack.
“They were close to getting a draw at Leverkusen and that will have given them encouragement.”
