Real Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay spoke ahead of tonight’s showdown at Stadio Olimpico between his side and Jose Mourinho’s men.

“I think Roma were unlucky to draw us. But I can say the same about us,” Aperribay told reporters in today’s press conference.

“It’s a fairly balanced game. Roma are a very strong team and it won’t be easy, they know how to play football very well, but I can’t tell you who will come out on top.”

“I hope that the boys will put in a good performance and keep control of the game, and I hope we won’t suffer from the start.”
