We have to go out hoping to win, but they are second

Imanol Alguacil knows Inter Milan’s potential very well but believes his Real Sociedad must be the brave team as always on his debut in the Champions League, even more so because he played in front of his fans. The Orio coach believes that if his players are at the level they can reach, they will compete head-to-head and even have a chance of winning.

Imanol said a few months ago that his Real team was not yet ready for high-level European games. Is it beautiful? “Let’s see, tomorrow. This isn’t about today yes and tomorrow no, it’s about every day, be it Madrid, Inter or Getafe. For me it’s not the result, it’s the how, whoever is in front, it’s always “That.” “That day the team reacted, not just for the second leg, but for the rest of the league. We need consistency to be a reliable team, a top team,” he reflected.

For what it cost us, we have to be the real team we always are. We have to go out to have fun, but also go out to compete and win

He was asked whether his team will stick to their usual style or change something. depending on Inter. “It doesn’t matter. They have so much potential that it doesn’t matter. Certainly many teams played back against Inter without giving them space and they fell behind, and vice versa. That’s why they only scored 13 goals against one” , he explained.

He continued his opinion about the Italians. “For this reason, I will not talk about the strengths, which are numerous. We have to be ourselves and know that we rightly have the second place in front of us and a team that has started to overwhelm everyone.” he warned.

Still, Imanol is clear about the reality that needs to be seen. “Playing at home, with what it cost us, with a lot of players that I have lived with since I was young, we realize that we have to have fun but not go out to see what happens, but “Go out there to compete and win.” They are very good, but “If we reach our level, we will compete, and if we compete, we can be close to winning,” he noted.

We know how tough the group is, with Inter deserving runners-up and Benfica eliminated by Inter

Imanol has highlighted what it means to be promoted from the Europa League to the Champions League and added value to the group. “The jump is very big. We must go out with the hope of winning, but knowing who we have in front of us, in this case the runner-up of the Champions League and a candidate to win the Italian League, who did not win last year because “Naples were eliminated is. And they left out Benfica, another rival in the group. “So we know how tough the group is, some may not see it that way,” he hinted.

Finally, you can expect a great atmosphere in the Anoeta stands. “We all experienced it last year in the Olympic Stadium in Rome. Fans who were from here told me that the atmosphere was great, I hope that the Italians who come tomorrow will say the same about the Gipuzkoans,” he wished.
