Match background Only this chapter

Qualification for the UEFA Europa League knockout phase is on the line as Napoli and Real Sociedad face off at the Stadio San Paolo in an intriguing climax to Group F.

• Napoli are two points clear of both Real Sociedad and AZ Alkmaar at the top of the table following their 1-1 draw in the Netherlands on Matchday 5, when the Spanish side had to come from behind twice to earn a 2-2 home draw with bottom-placed Rijeka.

• The Italian side will qualify if they avoid defeat, and top the group with a win, but will be eliminated if they lose and AZ win at eliminated Rijeka. Real Sociedad will also finish first if they win; failing that, they must match or better AZ's result in Croatia in order to qualify behind Napoli as runners-up.

Previous meetings
• The clubs met for the first time on 29 October, Napoli winning 1-0 in San Sebastián thanks to Matteo Politano's deflected long-range strike.

• Napoli's 2019/20 European campaign was ended by a Spanish club as Barcelona overcame them in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 (1-1 h, 1-3 a). That first-leg draw was their fifth in eight home games against Spanish visitors (W2 L1), extending their winless home run to four matches.

• Real Sociedad have lost both previous UEFA contests in Italy, going down 3-0 at Internazionale in the 1979/80 UEFA Cup first round and 4-2 at Juventus in the 2003/04 UEFA Champions League group stage.

Form guide
• After four successive seasons in the UEFA Champions League, Napoli are back in the UEFA Europa League group stage – the prize for winning the Coppa Italia, which they claimed under new coach Gennaro Gattuso after a shoot-out victory against Juventus in the final (0-0, 4-2 on pens). The Partenopei, seventh in Serie A, also reached the UEFA Champions League round of 16 last term after qualifying unbeaten as runners-up to Liverpool in their group.

• The 1988/89 UEFA Cup winners have competed in the UEFA Europa League knockout phase on seven previous occasions, four times after coming through their group. They have never failed to qualify from their section and have progressed as group winners on the two most recent occasions, winning all six matches last time out in 2015/16 when they also set the current record for the most goals scored in a UEFA Europa League group (22).

• Napoli scored five goals in each of their three home group games in 2015/16 – against Club Brugge, Midtjylland and Legia Warszawa – and were on a run of six successive UEFA Europa League group victories at the Stadio San Paolo until AZ beat them 1-0 there on Matchday 1. Their overall home record in this competition, including qualifying, is now W16 D7 L5, a 2-0 win against Rijeka on Matchday 4 following two successive defeats.

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, Real Sociedad have won four, drawn one and lost three of their eight European games on the road. They have kept clean sheets in four of their last five away games in the UEFA Europa League group stage (W3 D1 L1), including this season at both Rijeka (1-0) and AZ (0-0).

Links and trivia
• Fabián Ruiz is a current Spanish international who played in his homeland for both Real Betis and Elche before joining Napoli in 2018. He is a national team-mate of Real Sociedad duo Mikel Merino and Mikel Oyarzabal.

• Napoli's Slovakian midfielder Stanislav Lobotka also played in Spain for Celta Vigo from July 2017 to January 2020.

• Napoli's David Ospina, who saved a penalty against AZ on Matchday 5, and Real Sociedad's Nacho Monreal were colleagues at Arsenal from 2014 to 2018.

• Dries Mertens, who scored Napoli's goal in Alkmaar on his 100th appearance in UEFA club competition, and Real Sociedad's Adnan Januzaj both play for Belgium.

• Napoli are one of six former UEFA Cup winners in this season's UEFA Europa League group stage – along with Bayer Leverkusen (Group C), PSV Eindhoven (E), Tottenham (J), CSKA Moskva and Feyenoord (both K).
