Napoli host Real Sociedad in a crucial UEFA Europa League encounter at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Thursday. Napoli currently top the group with Sociedad in second, but neither are guaranteed a place in the next round as yet.

Napoli Form


Napoli have won five of their last seven matches in all competitions. Their only defeat in that time came in a 3-1 home loss to AC Milan in Serie A.

Since then Napoli have beaten Rijeka 2-0 at home, Roma 4-0 at home and drawn 1-1 at AZ in the Europa League.  In their last match Napoli won 4-0 at 10-man Crotone as Lorenzo Insigne, Hirving Lozano, Diego Demme and Andrea Petagne found the back of the net.

Napoli need a point to guarantee a place in the next round while a defeat could see them knocked out.

Forward Victor Osimhen is out injured for this match. There are doubts over the fitness of defenders Amir Rrahmani and Elseid Hysaj who recently recovered from COVID-19.

Fabian Ruiz returned from injury at the weekend but didn’t get off the bench, so is likely to make an appearance in this match.

Real Sociedad are on a seven match unbeaten run but their last four have all ended in draws. Their last defeat came against Napoli earlier in the Europa League group stage.

Real Sociedad’s run of draws continued at the weekend when their match against Deportivo Alaves ended goalless.
