The doubt for Kubo in Mallorca, the desire to score points in Real

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 6,176

This Sunday, Mallorca will play Real Sociedad with one of their most recent signings doubtful, the Japonese Takefusa Kubo since his inclusion will only be known a few hours before the game, when coach Vicente Moreno will name his starting XI.

Mallorca will play their clash before a Real Sociedad who are eager for points, with the aim of remainibng unbeaten in Son Moix, where they haven't lost for more than 8 months.

Moreno has already announced that the debut of Kubo and also that of the French winger Yanni Salibur, the last two reinforcements of his team, will depend on the "circumstances" as he said at a press conference.

Moreno keeps his confidence intact in the block of players who conquered two consecutive promotions, even more, after the debut in the Primera Division six years later with the victory of last day against Eibar (2-1).

The island has brought in 12 new players, but only two of them, the ex-Madrid player Aleix Febas and the Ghana man Lumor Agbenyenu have formed part of the starting team up until now.

Febas plays as a midfielder along with veteran Salva Sevilla, 35, and Lumor starts for the simple reason that he is the only left back of the squad.

It is likely that the Valencian coach will keep this starting XI the same against Real Sociedad, as he is trusting in the majority of players in the team who earned the right to compete in the highest category of Spanish football.

In this case, the reinforcements that were part of the list before the San Sebastian team will have to wait for an opportunity throughout the ninety minutes.

 Real Sociedad faces the second of their three consecutive outings with great confidence after the good game and the point that was taken at the last moment of Mestalla and Imanol Alguacil recovers his centrals Diego Llorente and Aritz Elustondo for Mallorca.

The island's stadium is very adverse for the people of San Sebastian, who have not won there for fifteen years, but in San Sebastián they consider that the time has come to reverse these bad results and Real will go to this match and give it everything. 

Miguel Angel Moya returns home and does it with all the odds on him to be the starting goalkeeper, since he won on the first day when he saved his team with some outstanding saves.

The centre-back could register movements if Llorente and Elustondo become starters, moving the versatile Igor Zubeldia to the bench or to the center of the field instead of Illarramendi, who is suffering because he is playing with discomfort and caution after a serious muscle injury at the beginning of the year.

Real Sociedad have a lot of power, Real Madrid's Martin Odegard has taken control of the ship and from his talent Real can aspire to something more than the last seasons.

Willian José and Swede Alex Isak play a place in the lead, the Brazilian is not fine and the Swede showed in the preseason that he is a reliable player if he has minutes.

Probable line-ups:

Mallorca: Reina; Joan Sastre, Valjent, Raíllo, Lumor; Dani Rodríguez, Baba, Salva Sevilla, Febas; Budimir y Lago Junior.

Real Sociedad: Moyá; Zaldua, Elustondo, Llorente, Aihen; Illarramendi, Merino, Odegaard; Januzaj, Willian José y Oyarzabal.

Referee: Valentín Pizarro Gómez 

Stadium: Son Moix
