Víctor is thinking in switching back the draw and play with two strikers. Luisinho is suspended and Laure can return into the starting eleven. Cartabia was also tested as a starter.

The rotations will return to Deportivo with the team playing six games within the next two weeks. For the upcoming clash against Getafe CF, coach Víctor Sánchez could opt in keeping the 4-4-2 draw of previous weeks, but there could be two or three changes, at least it is what he tested during the three training sessions after the Christmas break.

At least one change is for sure as Luisinho is suspended after been sent off against SD Eibar. One of the alternatives is to switch Fayçal Fajr into the left wing and later pull Juanfran Moreno into the right blank.

This will open a spot for Laure at defence. The Madrilenian is returning from suspension. Another alternative was tested on Sunday with the presence of Fede Cartabia on the right wing and Juanfran staying at the right-back position.

The rest of the team should be the same, though it isn’t clear if Luis Alberto will stay at the starting squad. The Andalusian attacker was dragging a thigh problem during the week and Víctor could give a new opportunity to Jonathan Rodríguez.

Oriol Riera could be available too, but it isn’t probable that he will be a starter after been off for a month. The Catalan attacker and Jonás Gutiérrez will probably receive the okay from doctors on Tuesday and could be included in the roster for the game against Getafe CF.

Finally, the roster for the game in Madrid will be composed by 19 men as Víctor likes to travel with a third keeper, especially in this case as the trip is a long journey in bus. So David Gómez from Fabril will be picked for the match.
