Sturm Graz and Real Sociedad go in search of their first wins in the UEFA Europa League when they square off at Merkur Arena. While the Austrians have lost their two matches in the competition, Sociedad have not been beaten and will fancy their chances on Thursday.

Sturm Graz suffered a 4-1 home defeat to PSV Eindhoven in their previous Europa League fixture with Jon Stankovic netting a consolation in the second half. It was their second straight defeat in the competition having lost 1-0 to Monaco in their opening fixture.

Things have not been particularly smooth for Sturm Graz lately with two defeats in their last three matches in all competitions. Christian Ilzer’s men have been poor on the road and were beaten 3-2 by Hartberg in their previous away fixture.

Defending has also been a problem for Sturm Graz, who have conceded seven goals in their last three matches.
Real Sociedad are still without a win in the Europa League but have also avoided defeat in their two matches. They began with a 2-2 draw against PSV before being held 1-1 by Monaco last time out.

Despite being winless in the Europa League, manager Imanol Alguacil will still be pleased with Real Sociedad’s overall start to the season. They are currently three points clear at the top of La Liga and claimed a 1-0 victory over Mallorca in their previous domestic fixture.

Real Sociedad have a solid record on the road and are unbeaten in their last four away matches, claiming two wins in that run. They often struggle to maintain their discipline at the back and have conceded in their last four away matches.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have Real Sociedad as favourites for the win at 6/10 with William Hill. A victory for Sturm Graz is valued at 47/10 by SBK while a draw is valued at odds 10/3 with bet365.
