LaLiga Team News – Matchday 29 Injuries & Suspensions
Friday 18th March 2022
Athletic Club vs Getafe
|Athletic Club||Martinez, Dani Garcia, Agirrezabala|
Win Probabilities: Athletic Club 55% | Getafe 18%
Saturday 19th March 2022
Alaves vs Granada
|Granada||Lozano, Arias, Gonalons, Montoro||Torrente|
Win Probabilities: Alaves 45% | Granada 25%
Notes: Alaves should be at full strength. Granada still under interim boss Rubén Torrecilla but changes likely after another loss last weekend.
Elche vs Valencia
|Valencia||Correia, Lato, Gaya, Koindredi||Cillessen|
Win Probabilities: Elche 32% | Valencia 40%
Notes: Game 2 of a 4 game ban for Pastore. Yunus Musah back from a ban for Valencia. Cillessen is back in training and could be in the squad this weekend but Valencia may for now opt to stick with Mamardashvili who has been impressive in goal in his absence.
Osasuna vs Levante
|Levante||Mustafi||Duarte, De Frutos, Clerc, Saracchi||Melero|
Win Probabilities: Osasuna 48% | Levante 25%
Notes: Jose Luis Morales returns for Levante and is likely to start. The same goes for Osasuna’s Chimy Avila following suspension last weekend at Camp Nou.
Rayo Vallecano vs Atletico Madrid
|Rayo||Merquelanz||Falcao, Unai Lopez, Saveljich|
|Atleti||Lemar, Cunha||Wass, Vrsaljko||Carrasco, Serrano|
Win Probabilities: Rayo 25% | Atleti 48%
Sunday 20th March 2022
Espanyol vs Mallorca
|Mallorca||Galarreta, Greif||Reina, Maffeo|
Win Probabilities: Espanyol 44% | Mallorca 29%
Notes: Espanyol keeper Diego Lopez picked up an injury last weekend which forced him off, but is aiming to be fit this Sunday. 20 year old Joan García on standby if not, although he was at fault for a goal last weekend after replacing Lopez.
Cadiz vs Villarreal
|Villarreal||Alcacer, Alberto Moreno|
Win Probabilities: Cadiz 19% | Villarreal 56%
Notes: Ivan Alejo is available following a ban for Cadiz. Villarreal were surprise 3-0 winners in Turin in the UCL in midweek and Gerard Moreno featured in that game off the bench, scoring the opener on his return from injury. He could start here, although it’s unclear if he will be risked for 90 minutes.
Celta Vigo vs Real Betis
|Betis||Montoya, Camarasa||Tello, Moreno, Guardado||Fekir, Ruibal|
Win Probabilities: Celta 40% | Betis 33%
Notes: Hugo Mallo is back from a ban for Celta. Betis in UEL action on Thursday night so we should know more about their injury situation after that, but rotation likely at the weekend following their trip to Frankfurt.
Sevilla vs Real Sociedad
|Sevilla||Suso, Lamela, Papu Gomez||Rekik, Acuna, Carlos|
|Real Sociedad||Fernandez, Oyarzabal, Munoz, Monreal, Barrenetxea, Djouahra|
Win Probabilities: Sevilla 51% | Real Sociedad 23%
Notes: Mikel Oyarzabal’s season is over after he suffered a serious ACL injury this week. We may not see him again until well into the 2022/23 campaign. They should have Mikel Merino and David Silva available though this weekend. Sevilla’s XI will depend on what happens in the UEL against West Ham on Thursday night with some rotation likely, although they are limited on options due to injuries.
Real Madrid vs Barcelona
|Real Madrid||Mendy||Benzema, Rodrygo|
|Barcelona||Fati, Roberto, Umtiti, Balde, Abde|
Win Probabilities: Real Madrid 48% | Barcelona 28%
Notes: Nacho likely to get a start for Madrid in Mendy’s absence. Karim Benzema is viewed as a major doubt but hasn’t been ruled out totally at the time of writing. Barcelona in UEL action on Thursday night so fresh developments possible for them after that.
This information is accurate as of 19:00 (Spanish time) on Thursday 17th March 2022.
