Luisinho stated in Abegondo’s press room today, that this Sunday’s encounter against Real Sociedad in Anoeta (12 pm, Bein Sports), “is an important match for us. We’re coming from a great result. We can put an end to the relegation fight; Maybe not mathematically, but it’s a match that can resolve the season”.

Regarding the match against Málaga, the Deportivista left-back said “We had to win or win. We did it. We did our homework. We cannot relax. We have a difficult game against Real Sociedad. We have to carry on this track, and keep getting points”.

He stated that “the squad is aware that nothing is resolved. We haven’t won anything. We took another step forward with our win against Málaga, but nothing is resolved yet”.

Referring to Real Sociedad, this weekend’s rival, he believes “we are going to find a team that is fighting to get into European competitions. From the midfield forward, they have quality players. But as you say, they also let you play and we also know how to play”.

Luisinho believes that “we have to be concentrated from the very first minute to the end, because it’s going to be a hard game. If we get a little distracted, we’re going to find it tough and will come out defeated”.

He acknowledged that “in the last matches, especially away, we haven’t begun well. We started off very badly in the first half against Valencia and Sevilla. We don’t want that to happen. We’re finding away games a little hard, and we have to maintain the intensity and concentration from the very first minute”.

On a personal note, the Portuguese defender confessed “I feel good in this final stage of the league. Since day one, Pepe Mel has given me confidence. I now have to be grateful for that confidence and prove it every match”.

He recalled the home match against Real Sociedad: “We had had a bad streak. Everything went our way and for them, the opposite. It was a difficult match at that point, we got the three points which was very important. It’s now going to be a different game. They play quite well at home. We have to counter their good attacking game. We have to focus and not give anything away”.
