- Real Sociedad: Carlos Martinez, Imanol Agirretxe and Alvaro Odriozola (injured).
- R. Sporting: Akram Afif, Douglas and Lacina Traore (injured).
Real Sociedad (8th, 49 pts):
-The Basque side has been in poor form in recent games and will be looking to get back to winning ways in front of their fans. They have not won in their last four LaLiga Santander matches (1 draw and 3 defeats) and failed to find the net in three of those games.
A fully-fit Asier Illarramendi, La Real's star player and midfield general, as well as key player in Eusebio Sacristan's starting XI, returns to the team for this fixture. The hosts will be counting on him after failing to win their last three fixtures in his absence.
R Sporting (18th, 22 pts):
-R. Sporting's situation is the polar opposite to that of La Real. Having come through a tough spell, they are undefeated in their last two games on the road. With that in mind, a win at Anoeta would see them string together their best run of away results since January 2011.
-Survival is still an option but it hinges on getting something from this game to climb closer to safety. Sporting are only five points behind CD Leganes, who currently lie 17th in the LaLiga Santander table.
