MANCHESTER United’s Europa League tie with Real Sociedad next week will be played in Turin, Uefa have confirmed.
Spanish government restriction on travel from the UK mean the Basque side cannot host the last-32 first-leg tie.
It will instead be played at the Juventus Stadium on Thursday February 18, kicking off at 5.55pm.
United will still be able to play the second leg at Old Trafford a week later, with kick-off set for 8pm.
The game will be the club’s THIRD Europa League clash in a row to be played on neutral soil.
Last season, their one-legged quarter-final win over Copenhagen and semi-final defeat at the hands of eventual champions Sevilla were both hosted by Cologne due to Covid.

Euro chiefs are also expected to confirm both legs of Arsenal’s Europa League tie with Portuguese giants Benfica will be played in Rome’s Stadio Olimpico.
And Chelsea’s Champions League first leg against Atletico Madrid is set to be switched to either Bucharest or Warsaw.
Uefa have already announced Liverpool and Manchester City will play their Champions League last-16 first legs on neutral soil.
The Premier League duo face against German outfits Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach respectively.
