Real Sociedad were the surprise package of last season in the Spanish Primera Liga when they finished in fourth spot to secure a spot in the Champions League for the first time since 2003/04. Their pre-season matches have had mixed results and although they did beat fellow Spanish sides Real Union and Eibar, Los Txuri-urdin will begin their La Liga campaign on the back of a 4-3 defeat to Premier League side Southampton. Left back Jose Ángel Valdes has joined on loan from Roma along with striker Haris Seferovic who Jagoba Arrasate bought for €3,000,000 from Fiorentina and both will be looking to make an immediate impact if given their debuts on Saturday.
Getafe managed to secure a safe mid-table position last term and will be looking to challenge for Europa league qualification in La Liga this season. But just one win against FC Groningen in pre-season doesn't bode well for Los Azulones and they may be set for another year of jostling with the mid-table sides if results don't improve. Manager Luis Garcia Plaza has brought in left back Sergio Escudero Palomo from German Bundesliga side Schalke for €500,000 along with free transfers Roberto Lago from Celta Vigo and Alexis Ruano from Sevilla. While that trio may improve the fortunes of Getafe, the capture of centre back Igor Lichnovsky for €1.6m could be key to solving their defensive frailties and the signing from Universidad de Chile will be hoping to impress on his debut.

While Real Sociedad go into this game as favourites, they will be cautious in their approach as this fixture ended 1-1 last season with Getafe winning the most recent encounter 2-1 at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
