Osasuna rmoved off the bottom of the table with a 0-0 draw at home to Malaga last weekend but remain in the relegation zone with just nine points from 12 games.
Emiliano Armenteros returns from suspension for Los Rojillos but captain Patxi Puñal is still sidelined so Raoul Loe and David Timor should continue at the base of the midfield.
Joseba Llorente is also unavailable as he can't play against his parent club but the former Villarreal man hasn't been involved in recent weeks anyway.
Sociedad have begun to show in recent weeks the attacking talent they have at their disposal and despite a quick turnaround from Monday night they should have too much for an Osasusna side that, despite winning on their last away trip, has generally struggled away from home this season.
Vela's return to form is particularly significant as his goals in the second half of last season contributed greatly to their success and his interplay with the likes of Griezmann, Prieto, Castro and Ifran should trouble an Osasuna defence that has been the bedrock of their revival in recent weeks.
