Alkmaar vs Real Sociedad – UEFA Europa League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Group F Match Day 4 encounter, with Alkmaar taking on Real Sociedad on Thursday the 26th of November, 2020, at AFAS Stadion.

Alkmaar should feel very, more like… INCREDIBLY lucky to have lost ONLY 1-0 in San Sebastián three weeks ago. They traveled there having won their first two games in the group, including a shocking 0-1 triumph in Naples on their debut, but they got… schooled by Real Sociedad, who missed seven or eight fantastic scoring chances in the first half alone(!), and another half a dozen in the second part. Ironically, despite Real Sociedad’s offensive… festival, Alkmaar could have salvaged a point, as they were the ones who missed the last scoring chance of the match (their one and only in the entire game). Their current form reads; WWLWW. Three teams are on six points each in this group, and Alkmaar are among them. On Sunday they beat Emmen 1-0 at home, in their championship. Coach Arne Slot played a 4-2-3-1 formation three weeks ago, but in reality his team spent most of the game defending with… 11 players, not necessarily because they chose so, but because they had to, as Real Sociedad’s superiority was… beyond description. If you take the time to watch the highlights (if you didn’t watch the game), you’ll see what that means...

What more to add? Real Sociedad could have scored three, four, five goals, could have embarrassed Alkmaar, but at the end they needed a rather lucky goal to score and win the game. Their current form reads; WWWWL. They are on six points in this group, as many as Alkmaar and Napoli. On Sunday they beat Cádiz 0-1 away from home, yet another victory for them in La Liga, where they are leading, on 23 points from 10 matches. Should be mentioned though that second-placed Atlético Madrid, three points behind them, have two games in hand. Coach Imanol Alguacil played a 4-2-3-1 formation three weeks ago, with Swede Alexander Isak up front. Portu scored the golden goal for Real Sociedad in the 58th minute. Isak scored on Sunday, in Cádiz.

That 1-0 in San Sebastián three weeks ago was the first game ever between these two.

The two teams may be level on points, but three weeks ago everyone saw the chaotic gap in quality between the two, no matter if the final score was “just” 1-0.

A 0-2 victory for the visitors is predicted at full-time.

Date: Thursday, 26th of November, 2020.

Venue: AFAS Stadion

Kick-off time: 21:00 (GMT+2).
