Team News
Sociedad players Aihen Muñoz, Carlos Fernández, Álvaro Odriozola, Sheraldo Becker, Kieran Tierney, Aritz Elustondo and Martín Merquelanz are currently injured, but the club has no suspension concerns.  
Villarreal, on the other hand, also do not have any suspension worries, but Yéremy Pino, Denis Suárez, Juan FoythM Ramón Terrats and Alfonso Pedraza are all out injured at the moment.
“Getafe are one of the best teams in the league in terms of attacking strategy," Villarreal manager Marcelino García Toral said after his side's draw against Getafe.
"In the goal, we could have done a bit more. They scored in the first one they had and when we had the game where we wanted it to be. 
"In the second-half they did have some dangerous chances and the game became more even.  We need to improve. We were penalised again by set pieces. We must put a lot of emphasis on them.”
Sociedad thrashed Villarreal 3-0 in their last meeting in La Liga with the match taking place at the Estadio de la Cerámica on 8 December 2023.
It was the White and Blues' second win in their last three league games against the Yellow Submarine who won the other match.
