Team News

Celta Vigo
Real Sociedad
  • Ivan Villar is still serving a suspension and will be out for this one.
  • Carlos Dominguez returns from injury and could feature back in defence straight away.
  • Tasos Douvakis scored twice in Celta's Copa del Rey victory over Valencia this week, surely putting him in contention for a starting spot against Sociedad.
  • Andre Silva is back training with the squad and could feature this weekend from the bench. His presence is needed now more than ever due to Umar Sadiq's AFCON absence.
  • Martin Merlanquez remains the only player injured for Sociedad.
  • Alex Remiro returns from suspension between the sticks and should start this match.

Prediction

  • Celta, who haven't kept a clean sheet in five matches, face a Sociedad side who seem to be slightly withering under the lights as of late, winless in four La Liga matches.
  • Thew hosts themselves are unbeaten in four matches, their best run yet under the stern eye of Rafa Benitez. They now sit two points off the drop, and an unlikely victory would lift them to as far as 13th in the table.
  • Sociedad seem to be lacking something to give them the edge over their opponents recently, made even more stark by the current absences of Takefusa Kubo and Umar Sadiq. Another draw for Sociedad could be on the cards here, as they aim to quash Celta's inspired recent form.
