Match background Only this chapter

Back-to-back wins against Qarabağ have put UEFA Europa League group stage first-timers Sivasspor back in the Group I qualifying frame, but they face a tough task to make it three in a row as they host section leaders Villarreal, who need a just a point to secure an eighth qualification for the round of 32.

• While Villarreal's 100% record in the group ended on Matchday 4 with a 1-1 draw at Maccabi Tel-Aviv, they remain three points ahead of the Israeli champions at the top of the table, with Sivasspor a further point behind and Qarabağ, who have lost all four matches, already certain to finish fourth. A win in Turkey, where Villarreal have already beaten Qarabağ 3-1, would secure top spot for the Spanish club.

Previous meetings
• Sivasspor's first official encounter against a team from Spain – which also marked their debut appearance in a UEFA group stage – turned out to be a thrilling encounter as they came from behind to equalise twice against Villarreal on Matchday 1, only to end up on the wrong end of a 5-3 scoreline that matched the record for the most goals in a UEFA Europa League group game. The home side's hero was substitute Paco Alcácer, whose two late goals ultimately decided the contest.

• Villarreal's overall record against opposition from Turkey is now W3 D3 L1 and they are yet to lose in three matches away to a Turkish side, winning the first game there and drawing the next two, most recently 2-2 against Osmanlıspor in the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League group stage.

Form guide
• Sivasspor finished fourth in the 2019/20 Turkish Süper Lig to qualify directly for the UEFA Europa League group stage. Led by coach Rıza Çalımbay, they are the ninth different club from Turkey to play in the competition proper.

• This is only Sivasspor's third experience of European competition. UEFA Intertoto Cup participants in 2008, where they beat Grbalj and lost to Braga, they qualified for the UEFA Champions League in 2009/10 as Süper Lig runners-up but lost their third qualifying round tie to Anderlecht (0-5 a, 3-1 h) before suffering the same fate in the UEFA Europa League play-offs against Shakhtar Donetsk (0-3 h, 0-2 a).

• The Turkish club have won three and lost three of their six European home games, with a defeat (1-2 v Maccabi Tel-Aviv) and a win (2-0 v Qarabağ) so far in Group I.

• Villarreal finished fifth in the 2019/20 Spanish Liga to return to Europe after a season's absence and participate in the UEFA Europa League group stage for the record-equalling eighth time.

• The Spanish club have yet to finish outside the top two in seven previous UEFA Europa League group campaigns and have gone through as section winners three times, including the most recent in 2018/19. Then they went unbeaten in collecting ten points to finish ahead of Rapid Wien, Rangers and Spartak Moskva before knocking out Sporting CP and Zenit and eventually crashing out to local rivals Valencia in the last eight (1-3 h, 0-2 a). Their best seasons in the competition were 2010/11 and 2015/16, when they reached the semi-finals.

• Villarreal are on an unbeaten run of 13 UEFA Europa League group stage away matches (W4 D9), the last defeat on their travels at this juncture of the competition a 2-1 reverse at Rapid Wien on Matchday 1 in 2015/16. The 3-1 win against Qarabağ on Matchday 2 is their only win in the last five games, however, the other four ending all square.

Links and trivia
• A number of Sivasspor players have operated in Spain. Fayçal Fajr has had top-flight experience in the country with Elche (2014/15), Deportivo La Coruña (2015–17) and Getafe (2017/18), as have both Arouna Koné (Sevilla 2007–10, Levante 2011/12) and Olarenwaju Kayode (Girona 2017/18), while Isaac Cofie and Spanish native Jorge Félix have played in the country's lower leagues.

• Koné is a former Everton team-mate of Villarreal's Argentinian defender Ramiro Funes Mori (2015–17).

• Kayode has scored in all four of Sivasspor's Group I fixtures.

• Villarreal midfielder François Coquelin's next appearance in UEFA club competition will be his 50th.

• Sivasspor are one of six clubs making their UEFA Europa League group stage debut in 2020/21, the others being CSKA-Sofia (Group A), Granada and Omonoia (both E), Leicester City (G) and Royal Antwerp (J).

• Villarreal have played more matches in the UEFA Europa League, group stage to final, than any other club. This is their 79th encounter – seven more than second-placed Salzburg.

• The 13 goals Villarreal have scored this season have lifted their all-time total in the competition to a record 137, eight more than Liga rivals Sevilla, who are the only club to boast more UEFA Europa League wins (42 to 41).

• Villarreal coach Unai Emery has overseen 83 matches in the UEFA Europa League proper – 27 more than any other coach. He led Sevilla to all three of their trophy successes from 2013/14 to 2015/16 and was also a losing finalist with Arsenal in 2018/19.
