The Sheriffs are second in the group with three points, while Manchester United's zero points put them in third. Real Sociedad sits top of the group with three points. Omonia Nicosia is fourth with zero points. Diop, Akanbi, and Atiemwen shared the early Europa League scoring lead for the Sheriff after scoring a goal each in their opener against Omonia Nicosia.

Manchester United are still looking for their first goal in the Europa League this season. The hosts have kept a clean sheet recently, as they kept a clean sheet in the last 358 minutes of play in all competitions.

They scored 12 goals and conceded two in that time, scoring the first goal in four of six games. They scored six goals in the first half, while their opponents scored two goals in the first 45 minutes.
