Xabi Alonso: "We found it somewhat hard, but we gave a good performance overall"

Arbeloa: "It's important to know how to win the way we won tonight"

Xabi Alonso and Alvaro Arbeloa shared their thoughts on the match against Real Sociedad with the media.
"The match was open despite the fact we didn't have too much trouble. We found it somewhat difficult, but we gave a good performance overall. Real Sociedad pressurised more, especially in the second half, and we failed to score a second strike that would have allowed us to be calmer."

"We're having a positive run and laying solid groundwork. We want everyhting to work and to dominate our games. I'm happy with the way we're playing."

"You have to know how to suffer. This is a complicated venue and teams find it very hard to win here. We weren't as effective as in previous matches because Real Sociedad defended fierceley with five defenders, but we did a good job. It's important to know how to win the way we won tonight."
"Our objective is always to win no matter the effort. We had to give our all today. We're happy in the dressing room because the team is working well. There were changes to the lineup tonight that went basically unnoticed."
