Team News

Real Sociedad

  • It is anticipated that Real Sociedad will be without Carlos Fernandez, Martin Merquelanz, and Mikel Oyarzabal for this coming weekend’s match due to injuries sustained by those players.
  • The team’s head coach, Alguacil, had a formidable lineup in the Copa del Rey match against CD Coria. Diego Rico, Martin Zubimendi, David Silva, and Brais Mendez are all in contention to keep their starting positions after this match.
  • In addition, Mohamed-Ali Cho should continue to play in the last third of the field alongside Alexander Sorloth. Mikel Merino is anticipated to return to play in the middle of the field in the position of midfielder.


  • When it comes to Osasuna, head coach Arrasate is planning on making some adjustments to the lineup that was used in the most recent Copa del Rey match against Arnedo.
  • Avila is scheduled to return in the last third of the field, and it is anticipated that Juan Cruz, Lucas Torro, Aimar Oroz, Unai Garcia, and Aitor Fernandez will all return to the XI for the competition.
  • The two goals that Kike Garcia scored in the most recent match against Arnedo have put him in the running for a starting position, but it is more than probable that he will begin the game on Saturday as one of the substitutes.

Possible Lineup

Real Sociedad: Remiro; Elustondo, Le Normand, Pacheco, Rico; Mendez, Zubimendi, Merino; D Silva; Cho, Sorloth

Osasuna: Fernandez; Vidal, U Garcia, D Garcia, Cruz; R Garcia, Moncayola, Torro, Gomez; Oroz; Avila

Prediction Analysis

This has all the makings of a highly interesting encounter between two impressive teams, and it should be extremely exciting to watch. Osasuna are more than capable of picking up a positive result on Saturday, but due to the fact that Real Sociedad will be playing at home, we are going to have to give the edge to the Basque team in what should be a very close matchup at Reale Arena.

Our prediction is Real Sociedad 1-0 Osasuna.
