Team News

  • Celta drew for the first time away from home this season to ensure they remained just outisde the relegation zone but are now just a point off the bottom three.
  • With Andres Tunez and Hugo Mallo still out Vadim Demidov and Jonny will continue in defence, but Paco Herrera is expected to bring in Mario Bermejo for Natxo Insua as a more positive move as the Galicians go in search of just their second win in six home games.
  • Real Sociedad, meanwhile, moved to within two points of the European places as they staged a remarkable comeback from 2-0 down to beat Barcelona 3-2 at Anoeta.
  • Gonzalo Castro's two goals in that game should ensure he retains his place in the three behind the main striker with Carlos Vela expected to lead the line again ahead of Diego Ifran and Imanol Agirretxe.
  • Ruben Pardo could also be paired once more with Asier Illarramendi in midfield as David Zurutuza remains out injured.

Prediction

  • Sociedad prevailed 2-1 when these two met on the second weekend of the season and still have the great firepower as is reflected by their current league positions.
  • However, the Basques have still only won two of their nine away league games this season and a share of the spoils wouldn't be a bad result for either side.
