Real Sociedad's best league performance in recent years is their 2nd place finish in La Liga in 2002-03. Key contributors to that side included a Serb (Darko Kovačević), two Turks (Nihat Kahveci and Tayfun Korkut), a Russian (Valeri Karpin), a Dutch goalkeeper (Sander Westerveld), and Spanish home-grown talent Xabi Alonso, coached by French manager Raynald Denoueix. Key moments from that season came when Real Sociedad beat Real Madrid in April 4-2 at the Anoeta in San Sebastián. They kept first place in La Liga until matchday 37 when they were due to play Celta de Vigo in a match that ended up 3-2 in favor of Celta, while on the other hand Real Madrid had beaten city rivals Atletico Madrid 4-0. This meant that the team from Madrid secured first place two points clear of Real Sociedad just ahead of the last matchday of the season when a 3-0 Sociedad victory against Atletico Madrid was just not enough because Real Madrid had just secured another victory against Athletic Bilbao. The team quailfied directly for the UEFA Champions League 2003–04 by finishing 2nd, they ended up unbeaten at home with 71 goals scored and defeated on 6 occasions only. Strikers Nihat and Kovačević finished 2nd and 3rd respectively on the Pichichi chart with 23 and 20 goals.
