Oltra will probably be unable to repeat the lineup of the first two matchdays, this since Bruno Gama is doubtful due to a hamstring problem. Ze Castro could be picked for the first time on the season.

Bad news at Abegondo on Thursday as Bruno Gama stayed out of the training pitch due to a hamstring injury. Oltra admitted that it will be difficult to have him available for Saturday’s match against Getafe, though he also stated that he’ll wait until the day of the game in order to know if the winger will be fit to play.

This unexpected problem means that Oltra will probably be forced to make changes at the team after repeating the same starting eleven in the first two matchdays of the season. The main candidate to replace Bruno is Javier Camuñas, who could switch to the right wing and play his first game as a starter at Depor.

The rest of the team should be the same one of the first two matchdays, including Daniel Aranzubia, the keeper was replaced at half-time of the game against Valencia due to a gastric problem, but he’s already recovered and will defend the goal against Getafe.

Marchena and Aythami will probably be the two central defenders; Ze Castro could be picked for the first time though it isn’t expected that he could be a starter. Manuel Pablo should continue defending the right side and Evaldo will stay at the left despite the latest criticism with his performance.

Juan Carlos Valerón could be the playmaker in the scheme; Pizzi should continue on the left after his solid game at Mestalla, finally Riki should stay at the centre of the attack with Nélson Oliveira as the main alternative on the bench.
