Jagoba Arrasate has said Real Sociedad have to win all of their final eight games this season to achieve their goals for the campaign.
La Real’s Champions League aspirations took a heavy knock with defeat to Almeria on Monday and speaking at a Press conference prior to tonight’s game against Real Valladolid, Arrasate said he expects better.
“We weren’t good enough in defence and while we did good things in attack, we lost because we weren’t good enough,” the Coach said.
“We’ve worked hard to ensure we don’t do that again. It was a real blow to us but I’m sure we’re past it now. Thursday’s game is very important.
“We can’t let games like this get away from us. It’s getting harder to win because every team has something to play for.
“But that’s no excuse. If we want to finish high up the table we can’t afford to drop any more points.”
