Eusebio: La Real believe we can progress

Real Sociedad boss Eusebio Sacristan says his side have belief and confidence they can still progress past Barcelona into the Copa del Rey semi finals.

La Real trail 1-0 from their first leg home defeat in San Sebastian following Neymar’s penalty but despite his side not tasting victory at Camp Nou since 1991, he believes his squad have the capabilities of causing an upset.

"We have complete faith in our chances of going through to the semis,” said Eusebio, who will be without David Concha and Joseba Zaldua for the match.

“Our hopes and expectations that we had when we entered this competition haven't changed. The prospect of being in the semi-finals is a source of motivation for us.

“We know how difficult it is going to be – because of the team we will be facing and for having to turn around the score from the first leg; but we believe that we can win there.

“We have shown what we can do to ourselves and also to the rest of the teams in the league, and when we compete to our best level, we can beat anyone.”
