Manchester United will play Real Sociedad in the Champions League on Tuesday night in a massive game for the English Premier League team.
United are currently top of Group A but Bayer Leverkusen and Shakhtar Donetsk are close behind, meaning United will be desperate to claim all three points tonight against the basement club, Real Sociedad tonight.
The game is scheduled to start at 2.45 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
United Manager David Moyes has had a difficult start to life at Old Trafford and his team has not performed as well as he would have hoped domestically this season.
However, there is a long way to go in the English Premier League, and he has time to make amends and work his way up the table.
A good Champions League showing will help to take off the pressure from the manager, and being top after three games has helped. However, so tight is Group A that a single loss could be hugely detrimental to their hopes of getting out of the group stages.
A win here today would put them on the verge of qualifying for the knock out stages, although there would still be some work to do in the final two games.
Ahead of today's game Moyes has said, "I won't take anything for granted. I have a lot of respect for Sociedad. We have to play well if we're going to get those 10 points, which will get us over the line.
"We've got ourselves into a good position in the group and we have to try to maintain that. I think our experienced players have shown they're used to the Champions League."
