Real Sociedad host Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, and Jagoba Arrasate has conceded that it will be ‘a special occasion’.
The Erreala play their Basque rivals tomorrow evening looking for the three points that could take them within a point of Los Leones in fourth.
The Coach though, has admitted that the derby will be a fantastic duel.
“It’s a special game,” he told a Press conference. “But it’s clear that we have to play well if we want to win.
“Athletic are a good team, but if we are at our best then we can win.
“They are having a good time this season, but at the moment we are thinking about ourselves. We know that if we reach our highest level then we can do well.
“Defensively Athletic have improved. And you can see that with the fact that they’ve got 33 points.”
