Gaizka Garitano gave today's press conference in Abegondo before tomorrow's match (8.45pm Bein Sports). He highlighted that against Real Madrid "we have seen teams like Sporting, Eibar, Villarreal draw or nearly do so. We can do it. It's true that other teams come out with a beating". He then added, "If we do things well and see a good Dépor, we can be in the game and stand a good chance".

The Deportivista coach insisted that "instead of thinking about Real Madrid, we have to think about us and doing things well. We hope to see a good Dépor in the Bernabéu. We hope to be competitive".

Along the same lines referring to tomorrow's match, he said "it's a match that besides playing well, we have to compete. The team was competitive against Atlético Madrid. Apart from playing good football you have to be competitive, otherwise, you can lose the ball in a corner or in a dead-ball situation".

Garitano confirmed that tomorrow's line-up will be based on the same that started against Real Sociedad. However, he did hint at the possibility of making some changes: "The idea won't vary much, although, perhaps taking into account we're playing in the Bernabéu, we may change some players for others, as this match won't be the same as last Monday's".
