Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Real Sociedad could line up in Sunday's La Liga clash with Barcelona.
Real Sociedad will be aiming to return to winning ways in La Liga when they welcome title-chasing Barcelona to San Sebastian on Sunday night.
The Basque outfit, who are currently fifth in the table, will again be missing Luca Sangalli, Miguel Moya, Joseba Zaldua and Artiz Elustondo through injury this weekend.
The home side are also sweating on the fitness of Carlos Fernandez and Martin Zubimendi, but both Nacho Monreal and David Silva could overcome issues to start.
Monreal is currently struggling with tendonitis in his knee, while David Silva has a back complaint, and the pair will be assessed ahead of kickoff on Sunday.
Head coach Imanol Alguacil is expected to resist the temptation to make wholesale changes to the side that suffered a 1-0 defeat to Granada last weekend.
Mikel Oyarzabal and Alexander Isak will again start in the final third, but Adnan Januzaj could drop down to the bench, with Portu potentially earning a spot in the final third of the field.
Jon Guridi and Ander Guevara are both on standby if David Silva does not recover from his issue, but Mikel Merino and Asier Illarramendi will again be in the XI, while Igor Zubeldia should start alongside Robin Le Normand in the middle of the back four.
Real Sociedad possible starting lineup: Remiro; Gorosabel, Zubeldia, Le Normand, Monreal; D Silva, Illarramendi, Merino; Portu, Isak, Oyarzabal
