Cristiano Ronaldo has sent out a passionate message to Man Utd ahead of their Real Sociedad clash
United must win by at least two goals to seal top spot in Group E.
And Ronnie has told team-mates they must all be fully focused on delivering the goods as a united group.
He wrote on Instagram: “Back to Spain, with the mind always set on winning and our full focus on getting the first place in our group.
“Let’s go Devils! We are United!”
Failure to win will see Erik ten Hag’s side face an eliminator for the knockout stages against a Champions League dropout.
Ajax, Bayer Leverkusen, Barcelona, Sporting Lisbon, RB Salzburg, Shakhtar Donetsk, Sevilla and Juventus are all moving down.
And the last thing United need is another two-legged tie during a winter World Cup campaign.
But Ronaldo is adamant his return to Spain will not end in disappointment.

Ronaldo has urged United to do the job in Spain tonight.
The veteran is set for a fiery welcome from locals after nine years at Real Madrid.
Ronaldo scored 450 goals in 438 games as he won two titles and four Champions Leagues.
The fact Ronaldo is in the frame to play is a bonus for the Portuguese.
It’s certainly been a remarkable turnaround in the past few weeks.
His future at United looked uncertain after a touchline tantrum against Tottenham.
But he has played the full 90 minutes in the last two games against Sheriff and West Ham.
And Ronnie is almost certain to start tonight with Antony, Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial missing.
