LaLiga Team News – Matchday 37 Injuries & Suspensions
Saturday 14th May 2022
Celta Vigo vs Elche
|Mallo, Nolito, Cervi
Win Probabilities: Celta Vigo 56% | Elche 19%
Notes: Elche are mathematically safe now so it’s possible they may rotate a bit. For Celta, Santi Mina continues to be unavailable for selection following his court conviction.
Espanyol vs Valencia
|Pedrosa, Morlanes, Gil, Dimata
*The RFEF have recommended a 4 game ban for Jose Gaya for comments made after the Osasuna game on MD32. Valencia are protesting this but we may not find out the final verdict until later on Friday.
Win Probabilities: Espanyol 38% | Valencia 34%
Notes: There’s nothing at stake here either so we could get one or two young players given a chance on both sides.
Sunday 15th May 2022
Villarreal vs Real Sociedad
|G. Moreno, Danjuma, Pino, Aurier, Lo Celso
|Fernandez, Oyarzabal, Barrenetxea, Monreal
Win Probabilities: Villarreal 45% | Real Sociedad 30%
Notes: This is a key game that may determine the Europa League/Conference League places so both teams should name their strongest XI’s. Villarreal are still monitoring the fitness of a number of key players but still won 5-1 on Thursday night without Moreno, Danjuma & co.
Cadiz vs Real Madrid
|Haroyan, Alejo, San Emeterio
|Carvajal, Alaba, Isco, Hazard, Asensio, Marcelo, Ceballos, Bale
Win Probabilities: Cadiz 30% | Real Madrid 43%
Notes: Real Madrid are continuing to rotate and rest anyone who’s not 100% fit ahead of the UCL Final. That should continue here with Kroos, Militao and Casemiro potentially rotating back into the XI after sitting out Thursday’s 6-0 win.
Athletic Club vs Osasuna
|Nunez, Capa, Sancet
Win Probabilities: Athletic 63% | Osasuna 16%
Notes: Athletic still have an outside shot of European football so should name their strongest XI. Osasuna are not fighting for anything and rested key men including keeper Sergio Herrera and in-form striker Ante Budimir in midweek. Both could potentially return to the starting XI this weekend.
Levante vs Alaves
|Mustafi, Soldado, De Frutos
Win Probabilities: Levante 34% | Alaves 43%
Notes: Levante were relegated on Thursday night so it’s very possible we may see many changes for them this weekend. Alaves have to get a result here to stand any chance of survival and may not change much from their midweek starting XI that defeated Espanyol.
Atletico Madrid vs Sevilla
|Rekik, Suso, Navas
Win Probabilities: Atleti 45% | Sevilla 29%
Notes: Atleti clinched UCL qualification in midweek but Sevilla missed the chance to do likewise. This is therefore a bigger game for the visitors who are likely to make several changes with Ivan Rakitic, Youssef En-Nesyri and Lucas Ocampos likely to get recalls.
Mallorca vs Rayo Vallecano
|Galaretta, Greif, Sedlar
|Comesana, Unai Lopez
Win Probabilities: Mallorca 61% | Rayo 15%
Notes: Mallorca are battling hard against relegation so expect a strong XI from them. Rayo will make several changes, some enforced, some for reasons of rotation and to give game-time to fringe players after a 5-1 loss on Thursday.
Getafe vs Barcelona
|Dest, Pedri, Roberto, Nico Gonzalez
|Eric Garcia, Frenkie de Jong, Alba
Win Probabilities: Getafe 25% | Barcelona 47%
Notes: Getafe are still not guaranteed safety so expect a strong XI from them. Barcelona have loads of selection issues. Ronald Araujo went to hospital with concussion in midweek and may not be risked. Ansu Fati could potentially get his first start since returning from injury.
Real Betis vs Granada
|Ruiz, Pezzella, Bravo
|Neva, Rochina, Torrente
Win Probabilities: Betis 64% | Granada 16%
Notes: Both sides are fighting for something so expect strong XI’s. Borja Iglesias and Juanmi are likely to rotate back in for Betis. 40 year old Jorge Molina played 90 minutes for Granada last time out but could rotate out, with Luis Suarez potentially coming in.
This information is as accurate as possible as of 00:30 (Spanish time) on Friday 13th May 2022. However with games finishing late on Thursday night, there may very well be fresh developments on Friday.
