Real Sociedad could get huge fitness boost ahead of Athletic Club derby clash

Real Sociedad could be handed an almighty boost ahead of their Basque derby clash with Athletic Club.

La Real are in dreamland at the moment, sitting top of the La Liga table after a superb start to the season.

Imanol Alguacil‘s men have been dealing with a mountain of injury, but they have still found a way to lead the rest, albeit having played a game more.

Theoretically, from here it can only get better as they welcome players back from injury, and it looks as though they will get one of their star men back ahead of this weekend.

Real Sociedad face Celta Vigo on Thursday night, but after that, they welcome local rivals Athletic Club to Anoeta.

And ahead of that game, they could welcome back top scorer Mikel Oyarzabal, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Oyarzabal has scored six goals already this season and his return will be a welcome one for La Real, especially ahead of the derby.
