Real Sociedad

Imanol Alguacil and his La Real team have set the pace in Spain in the early months, and the coach will hope his team can extend their winning run to five games. The home side did light work of Huesca at San Sebastian with a 4-1 win on Sunday, ensuring back-to-back home victories for the first time this season. The club made their return to this competition last week after a two-season absence. That time around, they finished 2nd in the group behind Zenit St Petersburg and managed to win two of their three matches at home. Alexander Isak is a great player, many teams are interested in this guy, he has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. Portu plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.


Napoli overturned a 1-0 half-time deficit in Serie A at the weekend to defeat Benevento 2-1, but they come into this European tie having lost on opening night to a depleted AZ Alkmaar. The Dutch outfit was without a host of first-teamers due to a COVID-19 outbreak but still managed to take all three points in Naples. Napoli must show a better form. The visitors haven’t been involved in the group stage of this competition since 2015, but they will need to pick up points soon if they are to advance in a competitive group. The real leader in defense is Kalidou Koulibaly, who plays every game without a mistake, and every team would want a defender like this. The middle of the field is a combination of youth and experience, and Gennaro Gattuso is many times in a dilemma of who will start the game from the first minute. Diego Demme shows talent, he has excellent ball control, can play in multiple positions, and every team needs such a player. Hirving Lozano creates a lot of problems for his opponents on the right flank. It’s hard to keep this guy in the one-on-one game, he has fantastic dribbles, and the Mexican international is a real team leader.
