Real Sociedad vs Salzburg lineups and latest team news

Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad have had to adapt to life after David Silva earlier than expected this season after the Spaniard was forced into early retirement following an ACL injury in the summer. They struggled at first but are beginning to find their way and are making their way up La Liga.

For the match against Salzburg, manager Imanol Alguacil is expected to go full strength despite qualification already being secured. The only two players he is without for the match against Salzburg Martin Merquelanz and Carlos Fernandez.

Predicted lineup

Remiro – Traore, Zubeldia, Le Normand, Munoz – Mendez, Zubimendi, Merino, Oyarzabal – Sadiq, Kubo

Salzburg

Salzburg manager, Gerhard Struber, has a far bigger injury list than his opposite number with the Austrian outfit currently missing nine players due to injury. The list includes several important first team players including Aleksa Terzic, Andreas Ulmer and Oumar Solet.

The key men for Salzburg on the night will be playmaker, Oscar Gloukh and striker Petar Ratkov. The two men, who are just 19 and 20 respectively, are central to everything Salzburg do and will have to be heavily involved if the away side are to get anything on the night.

Predicted lineup

Schlager – Morgalla, Dedic, Pavlovic, Guindo – Bidstrup, Sucic, Forson – Gloukh – Ratkov, Konate

Starting lineups

The official starting lineups will be announced via UEFA around an hour before kick off.

Player to watch: Mikel Oyarzabal

Mikel Oyarzabal has been Real Sociedad's brightest player so far this season and has found the back of the net nine times from midfield. He is averaging a goal every 136 minutes and was rested at the weekend ahead of the match against Salzburg so will be raring to go.
