Jagoba Arrasate has warned Real Sociedad don’t have a walk-over on Monday night against Almeria.
The Coach argued at his pre-match Press conference that there is little difference in quality between La Liga’s highest and lowest-placed teams.
“There isn’t much between top and bottom,” Arrasate said.
“There’ll be no gifts [from Almeria]. We need to be competitive. It’ll be a tough match.”
Arrasate also rejected suggestions La Real have dipped in 2014, but he did concede his side’s away form needed to improve.
“We’ve shown we can play football. We’re focused on defending fifth place, but we do need to win more away games.”
