Real Sociedad technician Imanol Alguacil spoke to the media after his team touched down in the Italian capital ahead of tomorrow night’s Europa League affair with Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.

“A great challenge awaits us against a great rival. We are full of expectations and know that we are capable of winning,” Alguacil told reporters earlier this evening.

“We are playing in the Europa League, in Rome, against Mourinho and we are in the round of sixteen. The team is very excited and we want to play a great match,” he continued. “We can’t wait for kick-off. I want to see how players will react in games like this.”

“Our objective? We want to advance, we want more from this competition.”
