Team News

Real Sociedad
Osasuna
  • Hamari Traore has returned from AFCON and will be available for selection at right-back this weekend again.
  • Kieran Tierney is out with a hamstring problem and Javi Galan should continue his spell starting at left-back.
  • Takefusa Kubo will soon be back with the squad after Japan were beaten 2-1 by Iran in the Asia Cup quarter-finals.
  • Osasuna currently have no players absent through injury.
  • Jose Arnaiz could get a run in the side after Osasuna's embarrassing 3-0 loss to Celta Vigo last week, highlighting their current weakness in midfield.
  • Ruben Pena should start on the right, this week, instead of the left. Johan Mojica should start.

Prediction

  • Real Sociedad haven't scored a goal in La Liga since the 20th of January and are still sitting in sixth place in the league, but with Real Betis and Valencia hot on their heels for the Europa League qualification spot. Osasuna, although closing in on the top half of the table, had their progress halted by Celta Vigo last week in a shocking 3-0 defeat.
  • It was 1-1 in the reverse fixture, with Umar Sadiq scoring a wonder goal for Sociedad, but doesn't seem to be firing on all cylinders at the moment, only managing one goal in all competitions since that match, and missing a guilt-edged opportunity against Mallorca in the Copa Del Rey this week.
  • Osasuna, though, have only won once in their last five matches and a Sociedad victory on home turf could be the most likely outcome here.
