La Liga, 8pm Friday

It has been a bad week for Real Sociedad supporters and it's not certain to improve when Deportivo visit Anoeta.

Inigo Martinez, Sociedad's star defender, was sold to their Basque rivals Athletic after the Bilbao side moved quickly to hit his release clause following their sale of Aymeric Laporte to Manchester City.

Martinez's decision went down badly. He has previously been videoed talking about how he could never make the transfer to Athletic and Sociedad hit back with a tweet offering supporters the opportunity to swap old Martinez shirts under the words "already history".

The Judas chants will be out in force the next time the teams meet but for now Sociedad have bigger matters on their minds.

Hector Moreno's arrival means Martinez has been replaced reasonably well but La Real are on a shocking run which makes them vulnerable short-priced favourites to return to winning ways.

Sociedad have won one and lost eight of their last 11 matches and home advantage does not seem to amount to much for a side with just one success in their last seven in front of their own fans.

Depor have scored in 18 of their 23 matches this season and can stay competitive.
