Highlights: Real Sociedad 0 United 4Video
Despite the healthy scoreline from our first-leg meeting with Real Sociedad in Turin, Matic wants complete focus when the two teams reconvene in M16 on Thursday evening.
“We can’t relax,” he admits,
“because you saw how our game [in the] first 30-35 minutes was not that easy [in Turin]. They created some opportunities. They have some amazing players in their squad. We cannot relax, because they know how to play football.
“It’s special for them,” continued Matic.
“Adnan [Januzaj] played here, Old Trafford is like home [for him]. David Silva played here many times against Man United. But also [for the] other players. You don’t have every day the opportunity to play against Man United at Old Trafford, so I’m sure they will come here to show to the people that they deserve more than that game. [The] 4-0 was not their day, so everyone has extra motivation at Old Trafford. So we have to know that and we have to be focused like the first game.”
