Arrasate: Real won’t sit back

Jagoba Arrasate has made clear that Real Sociedad will aim to play with the right style and mindset against Barcelona on Tuesday.

The San Sebastian outfit travel out to the Camp Nou for this Week 6 fixture in mixed form and having failed to net in their last three games between League and Europe.

However, their Coach has asserted that they will only carry a positive mindset into facing the Catalans.

“If you sit back, the game is very long and you lose,” stated Arrasate in his pre-game Press conference.

“We know who we face, but we cannot be defeated on the field. We want to play a good game and take strength from there.

“We have found it hard to score and the goal is the hardest thing in football, so the best players are the attackers.

“In some games we have had a lack of success and in others, a lack of clarity in ideas. At the Camp Nou we will have to present our best version.

“If we are together and we approach our true level, we will have our chances.

“Barca under Tata Martino? They have not changed much. There are different nuances from what we have seen in previous years, but the effectiveness and control of the game is the same.”
