Getafe pick Ciprian Marica from the start as Real Sociedad prefer Imanol Agirretxe to Haris Serofic.
A win for La Real at Coliseum Alfonso Perez would see Jagoba Arrasate’s side move into fifth place, above Villarreal, at least until the Yellow Submarine play Almeria later on Sunday.
Arrasate has gone with Claudio Bravo in goal, replacing Enuat Zubikari, and a back four of Carlos Martinez, Ion Ansotegi, Mikel Gonzalez and Jose Angel. Inigo Martinez is suspended.
In midfield are Markel Bergara and Ruben Pardo with a three-pronged support for Agirretxe – Carlos Vela, David Zurutuza and Antoine Griezmann.
Getafe have Miguel Moya in goal and a defence consisting of Alvaro Arroyo at right-back, Lisandro Lopez and Rafa in the centre and Sergio Escudero on the left.
Borja and Michel form the midfield axis while Pedro Leon, Pablo Sarabia and Diego Castro line up behind Marica.
Getafe: Moya; Arroyo, Lopez, Rafa, Escudero; Borja, Michel; Pedro Leon, Sarabia, Castro; Marica
Sociedad: Bravo; C. Martinez, Ansotegi, Mikel, Angel; Markel, Pardo; Vela, Zurutuza, Griezmann; Agirretxe
