90 min +1: The first three minutes added pass without incident.
90 minutes: United throws everyone forward. counter not real. Sorloth rolls in the middle with the players on either side. It’s three in one! Sorloth advances on Fred, then rolls toward Cho to his right…but the pass isn’t good and De Gea can save the situation. It had to be settled.

88 minutes: Garnacho swings his leg at the ball from 25 yards. His guessing efforts fly unharmed. Kari Tolinius wrote: “I think you are right to report visitors ‘clearly and clearly.’” Overall, VAR in European competitions appears to be less pleasant than VAR in England.

86 minutes: Real Madrid makes a double change, replacing Mendes and Munoz with Sulla and Torrentes.
85 minutes: A unique zero is a cross in the mixer from the left. Ronaldo can not shoot any effort on goal. The union comes again. Ronaldo tries another left cross trap.

75 minutes: Sorloth throws the barrel in the middle and almost shoots Kobo into the box with an underscore pass. Kubo was denied by a good sliding interception from Martinez.
74 minutes: Sociedad penalty decision again. Pure speculation, but the obvious and obvious error may have benefited visitors. It was a very tough decision, but you can make an argument for that, if you’re too excited, and so the VAR dude probably didn’t feel empowered to overrule it. However, you will see that this decision is often reversed.
72 minutes: Kubo crosses from the left again. Malacia slices an attempt to clear the wilderness of the corner. Nothing comes from the resulting static widget. Kubo was excellent from the start of the second half.
71 minutes: …so Anthony’s last act of the evening was to get dressed. He has been replaced by Jadon Sancho, while Ilanga is making way for 18-year-old Argentine winger Alejandro Garnacho.

62 minutes: Turns out Martinez was booked for his penalty role, too. An insult to injury, given how harsh the decision was.
61 minutes: This is Real Sociedad’s first goal against him Manchester United, in four and a half games. Mendes nearly scored the second goal in three minutes, but his attempt to curl up towards the top right was blocked.
60 minutes: Silva goes to the book as a result of crossing Casemiro’s back.
Mendez slots firmly in the lower right corner. De Gea almost got there… in fact he might have gotten something… but he was hit hard and put it perfectly. La Real takes the lead.
58 minutes: Penalty stands! That sounds a little stiff, not least because the shot hit Martinez’s body first, and his arm wasn’t quite miles away from his torso. But the VAR is not in order to move.
57 minutes: The angle worked with Silva, who is trying to send the curler into the upper left corner. His shot hit Martinez in the hip, then reached his arm. The referee points to the penalty point, then reserves Fernandez for the complaint. But VAR will come true…

46 minutes: A very uncertain start to the second half by Sociedad. Zubimendi cuts high in the air, forcing Remiro to strike clearly with a great deal of uncertainty. Then Fernandes crossed from the right. Ronaldo, six yards away, should score, but flashes his head to the left.
United starts the second half. They made two changes in the break: Christian Eriksen and Diogo Dalot make way for Bruno Fernandez and Lisandro Martinez. Sociedad, meanwhile, has replaced Omar Sadek with former Crystal Palace striker Alexander Sorloth.
The whistle blows at the end of the unsurprisingly low-key first half.
44 minutes: Anthony grabbed a loose pass and fed Ilanga, who failed to fire Ronaldo with an easy pass down the right from the inside. Ronaldo is showing a bit of frustration.
