La Real host whipping boys Las PalmasNovember 24, 2017
Real Sociedad will welcome bottom of the table Las Palmas to the Estadio Anoeta on Sunday knowing victory could see them move up to sixth place in La Liga.
Eusebio Sacristan’s men have lost just one of their last ten matches in all competitions and currently sit in the Europa League qualifying spot as well as having guaranteed their place in the next round of this year’s competition.
They are clear favourites to triumph over a Las Palmas side who have lost ten of their twelve league games so far with just two league wins as well as away at Deportivo La Coruna in the Copa Del Rey.
Despite dominating for large spells at home to Levante last weekend they went on to lose that game 2-0 having shipped 21 goals in their previous seven league games scoring just three in reply.
This run of results has seen them drop below Alaves on goal difference and in serious relegation trouble.
Long term absentees Carlos Martinez and Imanol Agirrexte remain out for La Real with Diego Llorente and David Zurutuza both doubts with neither player travelling to Norway for the Basques 1-0 win over Rosenborg.
Las Palmas will have to do without Alen Halilovic and Momo who remain out with the latter expected back within a month.
Real Sociedad (4-3-3): Rulli; Odriozola, Navas, Inigo, Kevin; Illarramendi, Prieto, Zubeldia; Januzaj, Oyarzabal, Willian Jose
Las Palmas (4-3-3): Lizoain; Simon, Ximo, Lemos, D.Castellano; Vicente, J.Castellano, Viera; Tana, Calleri, Vitolo
