The Real Sociedad, rival for Europe

“Yes, I wish him the best of luck in that great game they have, playing in a final is something very nice, and hopefully the fatigue will make the League cost them a little more.”

Victory against Levante

Now we have two weeks to work and prepare for the Elche game, which is another important game in a difficult field. “
