The Catalans ensured his presence in the eliminatory Europeans the past Wednesday, and this Saturday, in a complicated visit to San Sebastián, will try to keep a week more in the first place of the championship of the regularity. The aim is clear, win to the Real Sociedad.

Further of the sportive questions, the ones of house will try to take advantage of that anoeta him atraganta to the Catalans, since it is one of the stadiums in which they accumulate more defeats that victories.
