Real Sociedad and Omonia Nicosia lock horns in the Europa League on Thursday

Real Sociedad will invite Omonia Nicosia to the Reale Arena in their upcoming UEFA Europa League fixture on Thursday.

The hosts got their campaign under way with a 1-0 away win at Manchester United last time around, thanks to Brais Méndez's second-half penalty. Mendez was on the scoresheet again in the club's La Liga game against Getafe, but that wasn't enough as they fell to a 2-1 loss.

Omonia Nicosia fell to a 3-0 defeat at home in their campaign opener against Sheriff. They were unable to return to winning ways in their Cypriot First Division game on Sunday, falling to a 2-1 loss against Apollon.
