Martí recovers Pablo Mari and David Simón. Depor face a team in a mediocre season, but that has added the last six points in dispute.

Deportivo begin the last stretch in liga with some sort of relief due to the victory in Soria, but also knowing that the team sill out of the playoff zone and that it needs victories. Now travels to La Romareda aware that a new win over Real Zaragoza (Saturday, 18h00 CET) will allow them to return into the first six places as there are direct meetings at the top.

For the game coach José Luis Martí recovers Pablo Marí, who returns from a suspension and will go into the starting formation as Michelle Somma is now suspended after been sent off against CD Numancia.

Right-back David Simón is back into contention after been off for a couple of weeks due to a knock. Left-back Sebastian Dubarbier is also available after picking a groin injury at the end of last week, so the only player out injured is Michael Krohn-Dehli, who remains sidelined with an Achilles injury.

Real Zaragoza arrive to the meeting somehow relieved. The fans are frustrated with a season in which the team is only thinking of the permanence after ending third last campaign. They have made three changes at the bench and ex-Depor Víctor Fernández is breathing fresh air after his side was able to add the three points of FC Reus and then clinch a solid 0-3 win at Córdoba CF.

The coach will recover centre midfielder James Igbekeme, who has been out for two weeks after suffering a knock against AD Alcorcón. There are three players out for injury reasons, playmaker Alberto Soro suffered an ankle sprain during the week and joined the long-term cases of centre-back Chechu Dorado (Soleus) and left-back Daniel Lasure (stress fracture).
