- D. Alaves: Einar Galilea (injured); Alexis Ruano and Zouhair Feddal (suspended).
- Real Sociedad: Carlos Martinez, Iñigo Martinez, Imanol Agirretxe, Willian Jose and David Zurutuza (all injured).
Alaves (10th, 37 pts)
- The promoted side continue their rise and are hungrier than ever to keep scaling the LaLiga Santander standings. Mauricio Pellegrino's charges will have been buoyed by last weekend's victory at Malaga CF, which came courtesy of Edgar Mendez's last-gasp strike.
- The Vitoria outfit have only succumbed to defeat once in their last seven LaLiga Santander meetings with La Real on their own patch (W4 D2). That reverse came back in the 2000/01 campaign, when the visitors ran out 1-0 winners.
Real Sociedad (6th, 48 pts)
- After slipping to a derby-day defeat against Athletic Club on Sunday, the visitors will be looking to fare better in this all-Basque encounter as they bid to reclaim fifth spot.
- Eusebio Sacristan's troops have taken the spoils in each of their last three LaLiga Santander away assignments and will be going all out to extend that run here.
