Take a look at the latest on the form and team news on both sides:
RB Leipzig have been in a rich vein of form in recent weeks, with players like Christopher Nkunku and Dani Olmo particularly outstanding. After a mixed start to the league, they have picked up recently, winning 4 games and losing 1 out of their last five. They sit fourth in the league after 22 games, winning 10, drawing 4, and losing a rather high 8 games.
RB Leipzig have scored 43 league goals and conceded 27. In Europe, they lost 3, drew 1, and won 2 of their 6 group stage fixtures in a group that had the likes of PSG and Manchester City. They could almost be forgiven for not triumphing over teams of such caliber. Andre Silva is Leipzig’s top scorer in Europe with 3 goals and 1 assist.
For their team news, Marcel Hastenberg will be unavailable for the German team as he is out with a knee injury.
Real Sociedad started the season in red-hot form and were atop the La Liga table at some point this season. They have since dropped off the pace but are in somewhat decent form going into this encounter. They have recorded 2 wins, 2 draws, and 1 loss in their last 5 matches in all competitions.
Sociedad are 6th in the league with 38 points from 23 games. They have won 10, drawn 8, and lost 5 of their 23 league games. Their Europa League record stands at 2 wins, 3 draws, and 1 loss in 6 games, scoring 9 goals and conceding another 6. Alexander Sorloth is their top goalscorer with 2 goals and 1 assist.
For their team news, Real Sociedad will have to make do without Ander Barrenetxea, who is currently sidelined with an injury, while Nacho Monreal and Carlos Fernandez are also out with knee injuries.
