In La Liga action this week, Real Sociedad will host Cadiz at the Reale Arena on Thursday evening in the 36th game week of the Spanish top flight.
Sociedad are struggling for form at the moment and have seen their CUEFA Champions League ambitions extinguished as a result. They were beaten 2-1 by relegation-threatened Levante in their last game, falling to a late penalty after failing to convert their own chances to score.
The Basque Country club are sixth in the La Liga standings with 56 points from 35 games. They will look to shake off their latest result and return to winning ways this weekend as they target UEFA Europa League football next season.
Cadiz returned to winning ways last time out, beating Elche 3-0 on Saturday evening. The first 45 minutes offered a drab showing from both teams before the Pirates scored three goals in the final ten minutes of the game.
They capitalised on their numerical advantage after their opponents were reduced to ten men just after the hour mark.
Cadiz are16th in the league table with 35 points from 35 games. They are just three points above the drop zone and will look to widen that gap when they travel to San Sebastian this week.

Cadiz are on a run of back-to-back unbeaten outings and have lost just one of their last four. They have, however, won just one of their last seven away games and could lose here.
