Can Getafe claim their first victory of the season?
Last weekend, Quique Sánchez Flores’ side were demolished at Mestalla, finding themselves 5-0 down after little over an hour.
Gastón Álvarez did bag a consolation goal, but this was offset when Mauro Arambarri was sent off deep into stoppage time.
As a result, the combative Uruguayan midfielder is suspended this weekend, which is a big blow.
Azulones did hold Villarreal to a scoreless draw a fortnight ago, but have conceded 11 goals in their other three matches, losing them all.
Real Sociedad meantime travel to the Spanish capital buoyant following a memorable victory in mid-week.
Brais Méndez’s penalty on the hour mark saw la Real beat Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford, the club’s first-ever victory over English opposition.
With games against Omonia and FC Sheriff coming up, Imanol Alguacil’s side are already in pole position to reach the Europa League knockout stages.
Back in La Liga, los Txuri-Urdin held Atlético Madrid to a 1-1 draw last Saturday; Umar Sadiq equalising on debut at Anoeta.
This leaves Real Sociedad on seven points, their only defeat to date coming at the hands of Barcelona.
An away win seems likely at Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.
