Thoughts From Both Camps

“We are very eager. It will be a difficult game but we are prepared.

We will have to play a great game to win. It is a good opportunity to start a positive dynamic. If we want to win this game we must win each individual battle.”

– Alberto de la Bella, Real Sociedad.

“I remember when I was a player of Real Sociedad, the fans and the players were very excited to play against the big teams and we gave our all. We are preparing for a complicated game where we will try to do harm and create chances to score.

It’s a joy for me to play at the Anoeta. When I arrived at Real as a 14-year-old I wanted to play, and no matter if it’s with the shirt of Real Sociedad, Ateltico Madrid or the national team, it will be a joy to play on that pitch.

We are happy with what we are doing, but we can do much more. We are doing it in training on a daily basis and, hopefully, we can improve and win more games.

– Antoinne Griezmann, Atletico Madrid
