January 19th, tomorrow morning, Villarreal will play in the Copa del Rey
Against Real Madrid, coach Setien said at the pre-match press conference that it would be difficult for Real Madrid to lose two games in a row.
Setien said: “I always prefer to face the team that won the day before. It is very difficult for Real Madrid to lose two games in a row, so I ignore those who say that Real Madrid are tired or not in good form. I am sure they are.
To win a race, an injured animal is often more dangerous than a healthy animal.”
“You can think that they are in a difficult moment now, but that’s just the surface. With players of their level, you don’t need to play your best game to win. Real Madrid have a lot of good players like Vinicius,
But even if we knew that, it would be very difficult to stop them because they are so good.”
“You can only minimize that pressure, but it’s hard to avoid it. Obviously, on a general level, Real Madrid are a better team than us, just like we’re better than other teams, but football doesn’t matter.
Not always decisive.”
Asked if they would be title contenders if they beat Real Madrid, Setien said: “What really worries us is tomorrow’s game and the league ahead, I don’t have a long-term goal.”
