Match background Only this chapter

Real Sociedad will be eager to draw level with UEFA Europa League Group F leaders AZ Alkmaar as they entertain the Dutch side in San Sebastián.

• While the Spanish club, who currently top their domestic league, have had contrasting fortunes in their opening two group games, beating Rijeka 1-0 away before going down by the same score at home to Napoli, AZ have bagged six points from six, an opening 1-0 win in Naples followed by a convincing 4-1 home defeat of Rijeka in which Icelandic international Albert Gudmundsson scored twice.

Previous meetings
• This is Real Sociedad's first UEFA fixture against a team from the Netherlands.

• AZ, on the other hand, have considerable experience against Spanish opposition. Their record in Spain is W2 D2 L2, their most recent visit yielding a 2-2 draw against Real Sociedad's local rivals Athletic Club in Bilbao on Matchday 6 in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League.

Form guide
Real Sociedad
• A sixth-placed finish in the 2019/20 Spanish Liga secured a return to European football for Real Sociedad after a two-season absence. Imanol Aguacil's team also reached the final of the Copa del Rey, against Athletic, but that all-Basque fixture has been postponed indefinitely.

• The San Sebastián club's most recent European campaign, in 2017/18, was also their only previous experience of the UEFA Europa League group stage. They qualified as runners-up behind Zenit, registering 12 points and 16 goals, before going out to Salzburg (2-2 h, 1-2 a) in the round of 32.

• Real Sociedad's run of 12 successive home wins in the UEFA Cup and UEFA Europa League was brought to an end by Zenit on Matchday 6 in 2017/18 (1-3). They have now gone three European home games without a victory (D1 L2).

AZ
• AZ were second in the standings behind Ajax on goal difference when the 2019/20 Eredivisie was prematurely concluded in March, which earned them a place in this season's UEFA Champions League second qualifying round. Arne Slot's side won that tie, 3-1 after extra time at home to Viktoria Plzeň, but lost the next, 2-0 away to Dynamo Kyiv, and therefore moved into the UEFA Europa League group stage, where they are competing for the seventh time.

• The Alkmaar club have finished in the top two of their UEFA Europa League group on four occasions, most recently last season when they recorded nine points and 15 goals – the joint highest tally in 2019/20 – in finishing runners-up to Manchester United. Hopes of matching or bettering their run to the quarter-finals in 2011/12 and 2013/14 were ended, however, in the round of 32 by LASK (1-1 h, 0-2 a).

• The 1980/81 UEFA Cup runners-up had lost three successive European away games, all without scoring, until they shocked Napoli with that 1-0 victory in southern Italy on Matchday 1. Their all-time record away from home in the UEFA Europa League group stage is now W4 D9 L6.

Links and trivia
• Alexander Isak (Real Sociedad) and Jesper Karlsson (AZ) are both Swedish internationals.

• This is the first time that AZ have ever won their opening two group games in the UEFA Europa League, though they did achieve the feat in both the 2004/05 and 2006/07 UEFA Cups, when they went on to reach the semi-finals and quarter-finals respectively.
