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.
