Real lose Zurutuza, gain Agirretxe

For Shakhtar Donetsk, Real Sociedad are without David Zurutuza through an Achilles injury, but welcome Imanol Agirretxe back.

The Basques are hosting Shakhtar in the opening round of group stage fixtures in the Champions League tonight, but must do without one of their influential midfielders.

The club report through their official website that Zurutuza has tendinitis in his Achilles and so is not selected, with Javi Ros coming into the squad in his place.

However, Jagoba Arrasate is able to count on striker Agirretxe for the first time this season, as he completes recovery on an injury that until now has kept him out.

Gorka Elustondo and Lissiane Cadamuro are both left out due to technical decisions.

Real Sociedad squad to face Shakhtar Donetsk: Bravo, Zubikarai, Dani Estrada, Ansotegi, Mikel, Iñigo, De la Bella, José Ángel, Pardo, Xabi Prieto, Granero, Markel Bergara, Javi Ros, Seferovic, Agirretxe, Vela, Chory Castro, Griezmann
