Real Sociedad dispatched Manchester United 0-1 seven days ago away at Old Trafford. They are now looking to back up the inaugural win in the second round of UEFA Europa League when Cypriot side Omonia Nicosia come to visit Reale Arena.
Brais Mendez made the difference for the Basques by successfully converting the penalty-kick last Thursday in Manchester.
The same player was also on target on Sunday afternoon when Real Sociedad lost 2-1 away at Getafe.
Head coach Imanol Imanol Alguacil can by no means be satisfied with his team’s performances in the domestic league since the Basques have only won two of the opening five La Liga matches this term.
Alguacil will likely make some rotations to his starting eleven this Thursday against Omonia Nicosia who are struggling badly to adjust to life under new manager Neil Lennon.
The former Celtic boss has gathered a very exciting group of players in this Cypriot team.
However, Omonia did not show anything in a demolishing 0-3 defeat to Moldovan side Sheriff at the start of the UEFA Europa League.
Lennon’s men managed to register just one attempt on target on the occasion despite playing against the Moldovans in front of the home crowd.
We doubt they will be in position to do much here against Real Sociedad, especially in this fixture away at Reale Arena.

Real Sociedad vs Omonia Nicosia Prediction
This match provides an ideal opportunity for Real Sociedad to bounce back from their domestic league defeats and gain some momentum ahead of the upcoming challenges.
Omonia Nicosia lost two of three matches at the beginning of the new season in the top flight of Cypriot football. Their back line looked pretty vulnerable seven days ago against Sheriff and we can’t expect any other scenario but a comprehensive victory for the hosts here.
