Andrés Guardado is ready to return to the starting eleven after missing the previous meeting at the Riazor; the rest of the starting formation should be the same one that Oltra has been sending to the pitch since December.

Coach José Luis Oltra will continue with his policy of keeping the same squad that has been playing the liga meetings since December; for the match against CD Guadalajara he has been boosted by the fact that a refreshed Andrés Guardado is ready to play after been rested in the clash with Alcorcón; it means that Diogo Salomão returns to the bench, while the Mexican performs at the left wing.

Oltra has practically repeated the same lineup within the last fourteen matchdays, and has only made changes when he has had a suspended or injured player, though a few of those changes have been permanent as it happened at the left-back position. For the occasion he´s only having the casualties of Manuel Pablo (Soleus) and Rodolfo Bodipo (heel).

At defense, Claudio Morel has impressed everybody and is ready to play his sixth straight match as a starter; the Paraguayan will perform at the left-back position; as usual Laureano Sanabria ´Laure’ plays at the right, while Diego Colotto and Ze Castro cover at the central positions. Dani Aranzubia stays at the goal.

Juan Carlos Valerón will keep leading the attacking efforts as the Canarian performs as the playmaker in the formation; Álex Bergantiños and Juan Dominguez cover midfield territory. Bruno Gama plays at the right wing, and Riki completes the starting formation covering the centre of the attack.

Perhaps the only doubts for Saturday is who will be on the bench, for the away meetings Oltra usually picks the other two centre midfielders at the team, Jesús Vázquez and Borja Fernandez, and it still to be seen if Lassad and Xisco will be picked at the same time; also interesting is to see if the coach will still leaving Ayoze Diaz out of the games; the Canarian has been discarded in the last three liga matches, just when he was a normal starter two months ago.
