‘We have studied Real carefully’

Darijo Srna says that Shakhtar Donetsk have analysed Tuesday evening’s opponents Real Sociedad carefully and believes they are a strong team.

La Real play host this evening to the Ukrainian outfit in the opening round of group stage games in the Champions League.

“They are a very good team,” commented Srna in the pre-game Press conference.

“They are a team who get results in the Spanish League, who play in the Champions League and, of course, deserve a lot of respect from our side.

“Real Sociedad demonstrate good football. They have a young, promising Coach.

“We have carefully studied the opponents, and hopefully will be able to use the weaknesses of this strong team. I am speaking without irony – they are a strong team.”
