Arrasate: Lyon won’t be easy

Real Sociedad boss Jagoba Arrasate is ‘excited’ about the prospect of playing Lyon in the Champions League play-offs.

The Erreala have been drawn against the French side as they face off for a chance to play in the group stages of the competition.

And the Coach has admitted that his team will face ‘a tough opponent’.

“They may not be the strongest rival in terms of quality and budget,” he told reporters. “But it will be an attractive tie, decided by small details.

“We are happy, but we know the opponent will not be easy.

“They are a strong team who are good at the back, so it will be difficult to score goals against them.

“But I believe we can win.”
