Arrasate claims Sociedad´s job half-finished

21 August 2013 02:06

Real Sociedad head coach Jagoba Arrasate believes his team must avoid complacency against Lyon to reach the UEFA Champions League group stage.

The Spanish club have one foot in the group stage of the Champions League after stunning goals from Antoine Griezmann and Haris Seferovic gave them a 2-0 first leg win at the Stade Gerland on Tuesday.

But coach Arrasate stressed his side's job was far from over ahead of next week's second leg of the play-off at the Estadio Municipal de Anoeta.

"I already said yesterday, we need to complete two good games to pass the play-off," Arrasate said.

"For the moment, we made the first one but the second one is still left.

"So we are happy today but from tomorrow, we have to train hard to get ready for the game against Elche and...well, we will be talking everyday and taking decisions.

"But before Wednesday’s game, we have to rest and train to be ready for La Liga game."

Sociedad were worthy winners on Tuesday, putting on a classy display of counter-attacking football coupled with two spectacular strikes.

First, Griezmann opened the scoring on 17 minutes with a sensational scissor-kick before that effort was almost outdone by Seferovic's 25-yard half-volley thundered into the top corner in the second half.

"Well, we showed our authority despite where we were playing," Arrasate said.

"The team wanted the ball, was looking for the goal from the first minute and we were lucky getting two goals.

"But, I would like to highlight that the team has character, knows what is doing… after can go better or worst but I wherever is playing try to win the game and if we are lucky, like today, I hope we can get more victories."
