Mourinho anticipates Real Sociedad’s attacking gameplan in return leg

Andy Mattioli

Jose Mourinho shared his thoughts on what awaits the Giallorossi in tomorrow night’s return leg with Real Sociedad in San Sebastian.

In his pre-match interview with Sky Sport, Mourinho remarked, “In Rome they played with Illarramendi and Zubimendi, I can imagine that only one of them will play tomorrow.”

“Sociedad will try to be as offensive as possible. They have a very good coach who knows that if he loses balance the game can go the other way. They are a possession team but with balance in the middle of the pitch.”

“Belotti and Pellegrini? They’re feeling well for tomorrow,” he stated.

“Their stadium? I rather like a heated atmosphere on nights like these,” he concluded.
