Alaves enjoy a good season, especiaclly considering the fact that they are newcomers. They are now on 10th place in La Liga, with 18 points of advantage over the relegation zone. Alaves have also advanced to the final of Copa del Rey where they are going to face Barcelona. Their home results are usually fine and there's good atmosphere at Mendizorroza. Real Sociedad suffered from painful 0:2 home loss to Athletic in the big Basque derby last week, so players can be in lower spirits. Besides, the Txuri-urdin have significant problems with the squad for Saturday. Best striker Willian Jose remains injured. Important midfielders Illarramendi (suspension) and Zurutuza (injury) are ruled out as well. Best defender Inigo Martinez is also injured. Hosts have Sobrino injured, whereas Feddal and Alexis are suspended. But, only Feddal is a first-choice player. In my opinion Alaves are favourites.
