Match background Only this chapter

AZ Alkmaar and Real Sociedad meet for the second time in Group F, three weeks after a 1-0 home win for the Spanish side that enabled them to join their Dutch rivals – and the Italians of Napoli – on six points in what looks set to be a three-way tussle for two round of 32 places.

• Victors in their opening two group games, the first of them 1-0 in Naples, AZ's perfect start was brought to an end on Matchday 3 in San Sebastián, where a single goal from midfielder Portu – his first in Europe – was enough to give Real Sociedad the three points.

Previous meetings
• Despite that recent defeat AZ have a proud record against Spanish opposition and have never lost at home to visitors from the country in five UEFA encounters, the first two ending in draws and the next three all producing 2-1 wins, most recently against Real Sociedad's Basque rivals Athletic Club in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League group stage.

• The Matchday 3 contest was Real Sociedad's first UEFA fixture against a team from the Netherlands.

Form guide
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 extended their unbeaten European home run to ten matches (W5 D5) with a 4-1 victory against Rijeka on Matchday 2. Their all-time record at home in the UEFA Europa League group stage is now W9 D6 L4.

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.

• Since losing all three away group fixtures on their most recent UEFA Champions League appearance, in 2013/14, against Bayer Leverkusen (1-2), Manchester United (0-1) and Shakhtar Donetsk (0-4), Real Sociedad have won four and lost three of their seven European games on the road, most recently winning 1-0 at Rijeka on Matchday 1.

Links and trivia
• AZ midfielder Fredrik Midtsjø's next appearance in UEFA club competition will be his 50th.

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