Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Reale Seguros Stadium will host the Europa League clash between Real Sociedad and AZ Alkmaar. La Real aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Napoli, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Dutch outfit. Imanol Alguacil is likely to field the best possible side against AZ Alkmaar, and it is no surprise the Basques are seen as favourites to win Thursday’s football match.
Arne Slot’s troops, on the other hand, aim to keep their 100% record intact in Group F, but beating Real Sociedad in San Sebastian is easier said than done. AZ Alkmaar are not regarded as good travellers, and seeing that Real Sociedad are eager to return to winning ways in the Europa League, the visitors are likely to return home empty-handed. This will be the first ever meeting between the two clubs in European competitions.
