Team News

Real Sociedad are likely going to be without Hamari Traore after the defender was forced off injured at the weekend. He will join Kieran Tierney, Andre Silva and Martin Merquelanz in the medical bay.

Almeria have no fresh injury concerns heading into the weekend.

Mikel Oyarzabal to score anytime @ 7/4

Real Sociedad attacker Mikel Oyarzabal has enjoyed a bright start to the season with seven goals across all competitions. The Spaniard has scored six in 12 La Liga appearances, including two in his last two outings.

He netted a brace in the 2-2 draw with Rayo Vallecano and after blanking in the defeat to Barcelona last weekend, he will be eager to get back on the scoresheet as his side themselves look to return to winning ways.

Oyarzabal will be relishing the chance to come up against a side depleted of confidence and planted at the bottom of the table. There is currently no better opportunity to get back among the goals and add to his already impressive tally.

Real Sociedad to win both halves @ 18/5

With the visitors looking to get another three points on the board, they will be looking ahead to start putting together a winning streak as they look to play catch up with the teams ahead of them in the race for the European spots. After securing Champions League football last term, Real Sociedad will want to fight for a place in the top four once again.

On paper, their squad is far superior to Almeria's and they have the chance to pile more misery on the hosts this Saturday. Along with Oyarzabal, they have other dependable goalscorers in Takefusa Kobo and Brais Mendez.

As they head into this one without a win in their last two, they will want to put on a ruthless attacking display in the hopes of putting themselves back inside the top six.
