Real Zaragoza striker Helder Postiga feels this weekend’s game at Real Sociedad could prove vital to Los Manos’ ambitions this season.
The Aragonese club have taken three points from the possible nine on offer so far this term, losing successive home games to Malaga and Real Valladolid, while their only success has come on the road against Espanyol.
However, despite standing in 14th place in La Liga, Postiga believes the game at Anoeta could have a bearing on the rest of the season.
“The game against Real Sociedad is tremendously important as we have brought in new players who will add more quality to the team.
“After the international break I think we will be much improved and I’m sure we’ll have many crucial games, but this one is the most important and we must be very clear about that.
“We must continue to work hard and come back from the bad results we had against Valladolid and Malaga and it is vital we win our games at La Romareda.
“We need to be stronger at home,” he told AS.
At international level the Portuguese is in a good vein of form, scoring in both games for his country last week, and is hoping he can continue his good run at club level.
“Things have gone well for me with the national team and I aim to bring the same form to Zaragoza, but the most important thing is to help the team.
“When I arrived here a year ago I promised I would work hard and I still think the same, giving as much as I can and trying to score as many goals as possible,” he declared.
