Match background Only this chapter

Real Sociedad will hope to inflict a fifth successive Group F defeat on eliminated Rijeka as they seek to improve their position in an intriguing three-way battle for qualification with Napoli and AZ Alkmaar.

• The Spanish side are level on seven points with AZ, two behind Napoli, after drawing 0-0 in Alkmaar on Matchday 4. They have scored just two goals in their first four matches, conceding one. Rijeka, without a point to their name, can no longer finish in the top two.

Previous meetings
• Real Sociedad's first UEFA encounter with Croatian opponents had a dramatic ending as they defeated Rijeka 1-0 away on Matchday 1 with a 93rd-minute winner from substitute Jon Bautista.

• Rijeka have now faced Spanish clubs on 11 occasions with the record W2 D4 L5. Their five previous visits to Spain, against different opponents, have yielded no wins and no goals (D2 L3), with Sevilla defeating them 1-0 in the most recent fixture, a Matchday 6 decider in what turned out to be a triumphant 2014/15 UEFA Europa League campaign for the Andalusian club.

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 then went three European home games without a victory (D1 L2) until a 1-0 win against AZ on Matchday 3.

• Third in the Croatian league last season, Rijeka retained the domestic cup thanks to a 1-0 win against league runners-up Lokomotiva Zagreb in the final, which earned the club a third successive UEFA Europa League third qualifying round berth.

• Eliminated on entry by Sarpsborg in 2018/19 and in the play-offs by Gent in 2019/20, Rijeka battled their way through to the group stage this season, a 2-0 extra-time home win for Simon Rožman's side against Kolos of Ukraine in their opening qualifier preceding a 1-0 victory at Copenhagen in the play-offs. The Croatian side have participated in three previous UEFA Europa League group stage campaigns, in 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2017/18, but have yet to make further progress.

• Rijeka's away record in the UEFA Europa League group stage is W1 D2 L8. They failed to score in their first six away matches but had been on target at least once in the next four, including the 4-1 defeat at AZ on Matchday 2, until they drew a blank last time out in Naples (0-2).

Links and trivia
• Rijeka's Dani Iglesias is a former Spanish youth international level and played club football in his homeland with Deportivo La Coruña, Guadalajara and Alavés.

• Real Sociedad and Rijeka have both scored just two goals in their first four matches. There is only one team in this season’s UEFA Europa League with fewer – CSKA-Sofia, who have yet to score in Group A.
