Manchester United 0-1 Real Sociedad:

Published on

Manchester United’s four-game winning streak came to an end in the Europa League round of 16 as Real Sociedad won at Old Trafford, 1-0, on a disputed penalty.

Players on both teams wore black armbands in tribute to Queen Elizabeth II after she passed away last night, and a minute of silence was held with impeccable decorum before the game’s kickoff.

The game’s only goal was scored in questionable fashion after 59 minutes. Substituted at halftime, Lisandro Martinez was ruled to have handled the ball in the penalty area despite the shot bouncing off his thigh after he blocked a close-range David Silva shot, the former Manchester City midfielder’s .

The judgment of Italian referee Marco Di Bello to instantly give a penalty was upheld after being reviewed by VAR. Brais Mendez stepped up to give Sociedad the lead with a penalty kick that David de Gea was unable to save.

Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the United starting lineup for the first time since August 13, but his 36th-minute header from a Diogo Dalot cross was rightfully deemed offside.

Manchester United will face Crystal Palace on Sunday at Old Traford.
