Jagoba Arrasate He commented in the press conference prior to the meeting that Osasuna and Real Sociedad will play in Anoeta on Sunday that “we know the potential of Real, they are fourth on their own merits and to get something positive, we will need our best version beyond that not have your best day. ”
The truth is that the former coach of the Txuri Urdin team in the 13/14 season has commented that for him “it is special” to be able to face the team of his loves. “I have always been a member of Real and I am still a subscriber”, which is why I hope that Sunday will be a “different” match when playing behind closed doors.
Of course, that is something that in his view is sure to harm the people of San Sebastián. “The atmosphere that had been created in the Reale Arena with the new reform was being special,” said the Berriatua, so not being able to count on their support will be something “that they will surely notice.”
The coach of the rojillos also wants to see his team play as they usually do in order to “minimize Real Sociedad” and at the same time “sink their teeth”, although the seven goals conceded against the txuri urdin in the two games they have disputed this season do not play in their favor. Yes, Get down He has not been able to hide his motivation “for the restart and especially to endorse” the good work done in the League to date.

Those who do have options to be before those of Imanol
Sheriff will be Fran
Merida, Roncaglia and Moncayola, that if they complete tomorrow's training, “they can be in the call”.
Otherwise, the former Donostiarras coach sees his team “train and I think it's very good”, but “you never know how you are after three months of hiatus”. Everything is unknown and even more if one takes into account that the preparation for the resumption of the championship has also been atypical. “In a preseason we have the indicators of the friendly matches to know how you are and now we don't have all that,” he explained.
On the risk of injury, in the opinion of Get down, this “increases when you play every three days, it is normal”. On top of that, they are not “used to playing eleven games in five weeks and it will surely be a toll that we have to pay,” he revealed.
