José Luis Mendilibar highlighted today at the press conference prior to Saturday's game against Real Madrid that "our idea of ​​football will not change for the opponent."

"We are ready to play knowing the difficulties the opponent has. If we leave concentrated and they do not surprise us at the beginning, we can create problems for them. We will try to play as we do against any opponent, knowing that Madrid, which is a great team and that has great players. If the opponent is better than you, you have to do things that you would not like, but because the opponent imposes on you, not for anything else. "

"I do not change too much when we play at home or away, from one week to the next, to play in the league or in the cup. We do not do new things. In training we rarely talk about the opponent, but about how we have to do things ourselves. As for work, this is a normal week. "

"I do not go crazy, I do not think too much about the rival, nor am I hanging around all day. I sleep much better the day before the game than after the game. "

 "We know it will be very difficult to win. If we go to the game well from the beginning to make our match and concentrated, we will surely have opportunities to win knowing the rival that is and that they will have chances to score. Our idea will be to play in their field, close to their area, and if we do that, we will have opportunities. "

Mendilibar is aware of the difficulty of the game. "I hope a good team with very good players, whoever plays. Each of the players, by themselves, can win the game without having played well. With the new coach, everything has been victories, but I do not think there is so much difference in the style and form of the game. "

On the Ipurua fans, Mendilibar expects "a good atmosphere". "The fans are going to help the home team and I do not think there is anything against them, the other way around". "There will be many fans of Real Madrid and there will be white shirts embedded between Eibar shirts. Surely there will be a good reception to the rival. I always tell our fans to support us and leave the opponent in peace. "
