Matchday 14 sees RC Recreativo de Huelva, the Liga Adelante leaders, visit Deportivo Alavés, who will be bidding to leave the relegation zone.

After two consecutive games without a win Recreativo may need to get back on track in order to stay on top. If it does not come away from the Estadio de Mendizorroza with three points it could lose its edge on second-place team RC Deportivo de La Coruña, so the Andalusians need a win in Vitoria. Sergi Barjuan is without Fernando Vega, who has a minor injury, but Jonathan Valle is back after a six-match absence.

For its part, Alavés fell into the relegation zone thanks to its recent defeat at the hands of Real Madrid Castilla. Natxo González's men are going through a sticky patch after their great start to the season and they need to find a spark as soon as possible. Ion Vélez returns to the squad after five matches out.
