Real Sociedad host Olympique Lyon in the second-leg of this Champions League qualifier, with the Spanish outfit having one foot in the competition after a 0-2 win back in France.
It’s been an impressive 12 months for the La Liga side, after finishing fourth in the league ahead of more favoured teams such as Valencia and Malaga in 2012/13.
The club did lose talented young midfielder Asier Illarramendi to Real Madrid over the summer, but stunning goals from Antoine Griezmann and Haris Seferovic sees Sociedad coping just fine without the Spaniard.
The side haven’t reached this competition since 2003 and with Lyon being shown as a shell of the side they once were, Sociedad look set to be in Thursday’s draw for the Champions League group stage.
Lyon have been overshadowed in Ligue 1 with the spending power of Paris Saint-Germain and with AS Monaco now operating in a similar vein, it could be a struggle this year for the club to even make the qualification spots.
Several of the French side’s players have been linked with moves away from the Stade de Gerland this summer and this may well have unsettled the squad.
Either way Lyon face an extremely tough task in Spain to try and overturn a 2-0 deficit and a Sociedad team that is brimming with confidence.
