SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain (AP) -Real Sociedad will be without forward Carlos Vela and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo for Sunday's Spanish league game at Espanyol.

Sociedad is on an impressive run of just one loss in its last 18 league games and is fighting for a top-four finish and a Champions League berth for next season.

The club says Vela, who leads Sociedad with 12 goals in league play, has injured a "muscle in his left thigh'', while Bravo has a "bruise and a pulled muscle.''

Espanyol is unbeaten in its last seven home games.
