Manchester United and Roma, main rivals for Real and Betis


In addition to the ‘red devils’, Sheriff and Omonia will be the opponents of the ‘txuri urdin’ team, while the verdiblancos will face Ludogorets and HJK Helsinki, as well as the Conference League champion

Real Sociedad and Betis face two great Europeans en route to the knockout stages of the Europa League, although beyond first place, which has the prize of direct qualification to the round of 16, the pass must not be jeopardized for either coming up, with affordable rivals to complete their groups.

La Real will once again face the mighty Manchester United, one of the big favorites and executioner ‘txuri urdin’ in the round of 32 two seasons ago. The group of Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes, Jordan Sancho, Marcus Rashford or David de Gea will be the biggest stumbling block for the men of Imanol Alguacil, who will have a very complicated first place in Group E.

They shouldn’t have too much trouble defeating Sheriff Tiraspol, who was forced to play away from Transnistria because of the risks posed by the Ukrainian conflict in this pro-Russian and de facto independent territory of Moldova, and Omonia Nicosia, cup champion in Cyprus but lost in the middle of the table of their last competition.

For Betis, the landscape is similar as it will be a difficult stumbling block to first position in Group C with José Mourinho’s Roma, current Conference League champions and bolstered with the media signing of Juventus’s Paulo Dybala, although he will not be able to count on another of his star acquisitions, that of Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum. Two affordable rivals for Pellegrini’s team complete the line-up, such as Bulgaria’s Ludogorets and Finnish HJK Helsinki.
