Barcelona vs Real Sociedad: Jordi Alba: Winning the title might look easy, but you have to value the hard work
Barcelona vs Real Sociedad Spoke after victory over Real Sociedad
Barcelona maintained their lead at the top of LaLiga Santander on Saturday night by seeing off Real Sociedad, thanks in part to a winning goal from Jordi Alba.
The defender broke forwards from deep to score only moments after Juanmi had levelled the scoreline in the second half and he spoke about this latest step towards the title after the match.
“We are responding well, we want to be champions,” he stated.
“It seems very easy now because we have a big lead, but you have to value the hard work.”
Real Sociedad were no walkovers on Saturday evening and the left-back reflected on the challenges of the match.
“Today it cost us a bit, we came from a big effort in midweek,” he said.
“But we continued in the same form.
“In the second half we were a bit better.
“I’m happy with the season and with the goal.”
“La Real were ready to play and it was a complicated game.”
This was also a big night for Philippe Coutinho, who followed up his goal and controversial celebration from midweek with a substitute appearance and who was welcomed with whistles.
“I heard applause,” Jordi Alba contested.
“He’s an important player and we should remember that.”
