All the matches in the 2022/23 competition, from the group stage to the final, will be exclusively live on BT Sport. Manchester United would prefer not to be in Europe’s second-tier competition, but after back-to-back wins over Liverpool and Southampton, things are looking up for Erik ten Hag’s men. Their Matchday 1 opponents Real Sociedad have a very familiar face in Manchester City legend David Silva, who was part of a team that tormented the Red Devils for the best part of a decade before the Spaniard departed in the summer of 2020. The blue half of the city still holds sway, but United will feel that they can challenge for silverware in this competition and have been placed in a group along with Sociedad, Sheriff Tiraspol and Omonia Nicosia.
One player Ten Hag will not need to worry about stopping in this fixture is Alexander Isak, who left San Sebastian after an impressive three years to join Newcastle, scoring on his debut for the Magpies at Liverpool. Sociedad have made an overall solid start to their LaLiga campaign, with 1-0 wins at Cadiz and Elche either side of a 4-1 humbling by Barcelona and will fancy their chances against a team trying to make Old Trafford a fortress again. Erik ten Hag’s first taste of European football at Manchester United includes a trip to Moldova and matches against Real Sociedad and Neil Lennon’s Omonoia. The Europa League group stage draw also brought Arsenal a meeting with Ruud van Nistelrooy’s PSV Eindhoven, who were knocked out of the Champions League qualifiers by Rangers. Bodø/Glimt of Norway and Zurich complete the lineup in Group A for Mikel Arteta’s team.
United’s game in Moldova is against Sheriff Tiraspol, who pulled off a remarkable 2-1 win at Real Madrid in the Champions League last season. Tiraspol is the capital of the unrecognised Russia-backed state of Transnistria. The Cypriot club Omonoia have had Lennon, a former Celtic manager, in charge since March. West Ham will meet Anderlecht in the group stage of the Europa Conference League. The two clubs played in the 1975-76 European Cup Winners’ Cup final when the Belgian side won 4-2 in Brussels. David Moyes’s side also face Romania’s Bucharest-based FCSB and the Danish team Silkeborg in Group B. FCSB were previously known as Steaua Bucharest, European champions in 1986. Hearts have a tough-looking section in Group A, playing Istanbul Basaksehir, Fiorentina and the Latvian champions RFS. Basaksehir’s squad includes the former Arsenal midfielder Mesut Özil and the Aston Villa loanee Bertrand Traoré.
Heading into the Manchester United Europa League draw, the 2022-23 season is yet another rebuilding year for the club. The Red Devils are back at it this season with a new manager in Erik ten Hag and new players such as Casemiro from Real Madrid, Christian Eriksen from Brentford, and Leandro Martinez and (soon) Antony from Ajax. The player they may no longer have soon is Cristiano Ronaldo. As the superstar reaches the twilight of his career, Ronaldo is desperate to play Champions League football this season. That is something Manchester United can’t offer. The club is in the second-tier Europa league this season, and, as you will see below, it isn’t nearly as prestigious as UCL. The Manchester United Europa League draw put the club in Group E along with Real Sociedad from Spain, Sheriff Tiraspol from Moldova, and Omonia from Cyprus. Here is everything you need to know about Man United’s path to the knockout stage.
