Malaga vs Real Sociedad Team News

Malaga

We witnessed several new faces in the Malaga starting 11 during their second-round Copa del Rey encounter. Only Carlos Lopez, Bilal, Einar Galilea, Antonito, and Loren Zuniga retained their positions from the opening lineup in the first-round match.

Juanpe, who converted the decisive penalty in the initial round against Barakaldo, secured the lone goal last month against Eldense, contributing to their progression to this stage.

Predicted Lineup: Lopez, Bilal, Diarra, Galilea, Garcia, Juanpe, Rodriguez, Molina, Larrubia, Dioni, Zuniga

Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad will miss Martin Merquelanz until early February due to a sore knee, while Artiz Elustondo is managing a muscle injury.

In their second-round victory over Andratx, Andre Silva netted the sole goal, and Unai Marrero made only two saves to secure his second clean sheet of the competition.

Predicted Lineup: Marrero, Elustondo, Le Normand, Pacheco, Munoz, Kubo, Merino, Turrientes, Zakharyan, Sadiq, Fernandez

*Confirmed Malaga vs Real Sociedad lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to Watch: Takefusa Kubo

The 22-year-old Japanese midfielder is currently in top form, having scored six goals and provided three assists this season. Kubo might play his final game before joining the national team for the AFC Asian Cup. The away fans will be eager to see their star player take an early lead and help the team qualify for the Round of 16.
