Europa League | Isak's plan: with "more experience" against RB Leipzig

Real Sociedad from San Sebastián does not want to repeat the mistakes from a year ago against Manchester United in the part-round game of the Europa League against RB Leipzig.

At that time, the team from the Primera División conceded a 0: 4 bankruptcy against Manchester United and ruded the opportunity to progress. "We now have a year more experience in Europe," emphasized the former BVB attacker Alexander Isak on Wednesday at a press conference in San Sebastián: "And I am convinced that we are better positioned."

After the defeat in the first leg, which had been held because of the Corona Pandemic in Turin, and a 0: 0 in Manchester had left Real Sociedad.

This season, the team of coach Imanol Alguacil moved into the intermediate round as a second round. Leipzig rescued as a group-writer in the Champions League at least the progress in the European Cup.

"All teams that have done it to here are good. You can not compare United with RB," said Isak, who once played in the Football Bundesliga for Borussia Dortmund. But the return to Germany for the game on this Thursday does not play a role.
