SD Eibar and Deportivo de La Coruña face off at Ipurua to close off matchday three in Liga BBVA. The match will evoke some of the best memories from last season's Liga Adelante campaign, which saw both sides earn promotion. Now, with their new arrivals, and playing some of their best football, the Galician side will look to win at the ground where Los Armeros beat Real Sociedad 1-0 on the opening day of the season.
Gaizka Garitano is without defender Dídac Vilà, who is coming back from injury, and Manu del Moral, who has an ankle problem. In contrast, Depor boss Víctor Fernández will be without four players through injury: defender Insua, midfielders Fariña and Salomão, and forward Lucas Pérez.

In their pre-match press conferences the two coaches spoke about what they feel could make the difference. "What I'm concerned about is that we play well, start quickly and play with intensity", highlighted Eibar boss Garitano. Meanwhile the Deportivo manager promised his side would be better but said there is still a lot of room for improvement: "We've improved our physical condition, but we still need to work in order to control play during the games".
