All appoints that Lotina will not make any change in the lineup ahead of the visit to Getafe FC; Guardado and Lassad are already fine and the Basque coach might be repeating a starting formation for the third time on the season.

Despite that Depor has only picked one of the last six points in dispute, coach Miguel Angel Lotina is not planning to make major modifications in his lineup, actually he is thinking in repeating the same formation that drew with Sporting Gijón on the past Sunday (1-1).

This means a 4-2-3-1 scheme with Juan Rodriguez performing on the right wing and with the couple Sergio-Antonio Tomás in midfield. The offensive efforts will be for the trio Guardado, Lassad and Riki. The Mexican (hamstring) and the Tunisian (flu) were doubtful at the start of the week, but both are already fine, while the Madrilenian will be facing his former club.

In defence, Lotina will use the same formation that has been implemented since matchday 04 against Xérez CD: Aranzubia at the goal, Manuel Pablo at the right-back position, Filipe on the left sector, while Colotto is joining Lopo at the centre.

If Lotina repeats the lineup used against Sporting Gijón, then it will be the third time on the season in which the Basque manager uses the same starting eleven for two straight matches. He already did it for the games at Real Madrid and Vs Malaga (Aranzubia - Laure, Zé Castro, Lopo, Filipe - Juca, Juan Rodríguez - Pablo Álvarez, Valerón, Guardado – Riki). And later for the confrontations at Xérez CD and Vs Villarreal FC (Aranzubia – Manuel Pablo, Lopo, Colotto, Filipe Luis - Pablo Álvarez, Sergio, Juca, Guardado – Lassad, Adrián)
