Montanier: It’s a trap!

Real Sociedad boss Philippe Montanier is focused purely on Copa del Rey opponents Cordoba and not the possibility of meeting Barcelona.

La Real, who drew 2-2 with Real Valladolid on Monday, are back in action tomorrow night when they take on Cordoba, a side Valladolid beat in the Segunda Division play-offs last season.

“This game could be a trap,” the Frenchman warned at a press engagement. “Last year Cordoba reached the Segunda play-offs, and in the Copa del Rey they knocked out Real Betis and came close to doing the same to Espanyol.”

The Basque club will meet Barcelona in the next round if they progress, but Montanier refused to discuss that potential match-up.

“This game will be tough. We travel with ambition, and hope to get a good result.”
