Stiff ears on the return of the Copa del Rey to the Bernabu stadium. Not a concession to the galley of Zidane. This match is a final, I don't see it as a quarterfinals. They are not going to come to give away anything and we have to be very plugged in from the first minute because the Real Sociedad is a very good team that plays football very well, warns the French.

Minimal rotations for the assault on the semifinals of a squad that boasts an excellent run: 21 consecutive games without knowing defeat. The French again excludes from a call to Bale, which in recent days has trained normally. It also slows the reappearance of Eden Hazard, which adds 71 ​​days of competitive inactivity. Casemiro, Lucas Vzquez Y CarvajalThey are also left out for physical problems.

The San Sebastian formation goes to the appointment granting the condition of favorite to his rival, but fleeing from fear. Some may think that we are going to the slaughterhouse, but we are always going to win. I am convinced that when they got the draw they breathed because they had to play at home because if it had been the other way around … That speaks very well of our team, the technician emphasizes Imanol Sheriff.

This is the third time that Real Madrid and Real Sociedad have measured themselves in the quarterfinals of the Cup. The previous two were favorable to the whites. The first took place in 1952/53, with a Madrid win by 4-0 and a home defeat by 3-1. And the second occurred in 1992/93 (4-0 at home and 4-1 outside).
