Team News: Real Sociedad
Nacho Monreal (Knee Injury), Ander Barrenetxea (Thigh muscle rupture), Carlos Fernández (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Mikel Oyarzabal (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) aren’t available for Real Sociedad manager Imanol Alguacil.
It seems likely that Txuri-urdin should use the 4-2-3-1 system for this one, utilising Alex Remiro, Joseba Zaldua, Igor Zubeldia, Aritz Elustondo, Diego Rico, Mikel Merino, Martin Zubimendi, Adnan Januzaj, David Silva, Cristian Portu and Alexander Soerloth.
Team News: Cádiz
Due to a fully injury-free group to pick from, the Cádiz boss Sergio González doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash.
We are inclined to think that Submarino amarillo could decide to play in a 4-4-2 system with a starting lineup of Jeremias Ledesma, Carlos Akapo, Luis Hernandez, Victor Chust, Alfonso Espino, Ivan Alejo, Jose Mari, Alex Fernandez, Oussama Idrissi, Alvaro Negredo and Lucas Perez.
In this match, Real Sociedad will most probably dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
Conversely, Cádiz will be up against it to get shooting opportunities although we do think that they will probably end up getting enough chances to score, too.
Our tip is for a comfortable 3-1 victory for Real Sociedad at the end of the 90 minutes.
