Fernando Vázquez will debut at Deportivo having four casualties at the team, while Abel Aguilar and Camuñas return. Sevilla is having four casualties for the game, plus other three men that are doubtful.

The first training session of Deportivo with Fernando Vázquez in charge took place on Tuesday’s morning; the new boss talked for more than an hour with the players and later the full squad practiced under the pouring rain at the training pitch of Abegondo. The Galician coach will only have a couple of days in order to prepare the visit to Sevilla CF (Friday, 21h30 CET).

Right-back Laureano Sanabria ´Laure´ (groin) and centre-back Aythami Artiles (thigh) are the two players that will miss the clash due to injury reasons. The other two players out of the clash are right-back Manuel Pablo and centre-back Carlos Marchena as both are suspended.

The Canarian was sent off in the previous game against Granada CF, while the Madrilenian picked his fifth yellow card of the season in that same clash. At the same time, winger Javier Camuñas and centre midfielder Abel Aguilar are returning from suspension and will be available for the meeting.

At Sevilla CF; new coach Unai Emery suffered his first defeat in the job after four presentations during the visit to Real Madrid (4-1). He already has four casualties for the meeting against Deportivo, while other three players are doubtful.

The players out for injury reasons are winger Diego Perotti (muscle strain), left-back Cicinho (ankle sprain) and centre midfielder Piotr Trochowski (knee). Meanwhile, midfielder/defender Hedwiges Maduro is suspended after been sent off at the Bernabéu.

The players in doubt are side defender Fernando Navarro (hamstring), centre-back Emir Spahic (fibula contusion) and goalkeeper Andrés Palop (quadriceps). Navarro joined the trainings on Tuesday, but it isn’t confirmed if he will be picked for the game, while Spahic and Palop were training apart.

Palop missed the last game against Real Madrid and, with Diego López transferred to Madrid, Emery had to rely in Beto, the goalie from Sevilla Atletico. At the same time, centre midfielder Ivan Rakitić is returning from suspension and will be available for the meeting against Deportivo.
