For the first time on the season Oltra has a full squad available for an official meeting, so he will have to leave eight men out due to tactical reasons. There are some doubts on the possible formation that will face Sevilla on Monday.

There are no casualties at Deportivo’s first team ahead of Monday’s clash against Sevilla CF; winger Javier Camuñas has surpassed an adductor injury, while striker Riki was cleared to play the game despite having a nose fracture; he will have to wear a special protection though. Attacker Rodolfo Bodipo was facing a back problem, but he was already training on Saturday.

This is the first time on the season in which Oltra has a full squad available for a liga meeting; it means that he can use any of the twenty-six players at the first team, also that the Valencian man will have to rule out eight men before the clash.

Within the first four matchdays Oltra only made one modification at the starting eleven, and now it seems probable that he can make a few. The main doubts are located at defense; Dani Aranzubia stays at the goal, while Carlos Marchena is a fixed piece at the centre of the defense. There could be changes at the other three positions at defense.

Ze Castro could be debuting claiming the spot of Aythami, Laure is pushing in order to take the place of Manuel Pablo at the right side, and in the left it is possible to see the debut of Tiago Pinto, though many people believe that Evaldo will keep playing there.

No changes are expected at midfield as Abel Aguilar and Juan Dominguez will keep playing there, neither there will be changes on the wings as Pizzi and Bruno Gama will stay at the starting formation.

But Valerón could regain the spot at the playmaking function, and perhaps the biggest doubt is who will be the central attacker. Riki has been the starter so far, but his nose problem may be the turning point pushing Nélson Oliveira into the starting eleven. Both attackers have scored twice in this beginning of season.
