Pepe Mel is having problems for the visit to Ipurúa as up to seven men could end out of the meeting. The rival is also having problems with the injuries and are currently in relegation.

After the positive exam against Getafe CF, Depor travel to Ipurúa in order to meet SD Eibar (Sunday, 12h00 CET), a direct rival for the salvation. Coach Pepe Mel remains questioned and he is having problems due to the lack of men during the trainings.

He not only had to deal with the fact that six men were out on international duties (Celso Borges and Fede Valverde) joined the group until Thursday), but also had to see how seven men have faced physical problems during the week.

Four men were dragging problems before the last game: Carles Gil (pubalgy), Adrián López (hamstring), Rubén Martínez (thumb) and Pedro Mosquera (thigh), from this list only the latter has chances to be available for Sunday.

Lucas Pérez is dragging a muscle problem sustained in the game with Getafe CF, then Fabian Schär arrived from international action with a hamstring injury, these two men together with Mosquera will undergo a late test on Saturday in order to see if they can be picked for the game.

The last man to fall was Gerard Valentín, who picked a contusion on his right tibia during Thursday’s training. So, Mel could end up having seven casualties for the game, which means to only have eighteen available men for the trip to the Basque country.

SD Eibar arrive in a difficult situation, in relegation after losing five of the last six games and with some important casualties. Winger Pedro León hasn’t been able to debut on this season as he is dragging a knee injury from the past campaign.

There are other three important casualties related to knee injuries. Goalkeeper Yoel Rodríguez is also missing to debut on this season after suffering a knee ligaments injury during the summer. Playmaker Fran Rico is out since April after needing a surgery.

Right winger Iván Alejo was the substitute of Pedro León, but he fell down in the visit to Sevilla CF.  At least centre-backs Iván Ramis and Alejandro Gálvez are recovered from their knocks and are available for the meeting, the latter missed the visit to Villarreal CF.
