Sara Monforte backed her side to take few risks and be solid against Deportivo Alavés (Saturday, 12pm CET)

Villarreal head coach Sara Monforte appeared in front of the media this Friday to analyse the upcoming match against Deportivo Alavés (Saturday, 12pm CET).

Ganas y moral para iniciar el año

“The team can’t wait to get back to action after the festive period. We’ve trained very well this week. After the win in Sevilla, our morale is high. We want to compete well tomorrow.”

Deportivo Alavés, a sensation in the league

“We all know about the potential that Deportivo Alavés have. They’re the sensation of the league this year. They’re a team who are comfortable on the ball. They have a lot of options, quick players and they can score a lot of goals. They’re very brave in defence, too.”

The keys to a potential victory

“The key to a potential win will be playing like we were playing away from home. Be solid, be convincing and be tight. Make the most of the chances we have. At home, we’re taking more risks. We need to be more practical and more direct.”

The objective of staying up

“Our aim is staying up. We have to give everything to stay in this league. The group deserves it, and the club too. We need to be in the top flight. Without taking into account the docked points, we’ve won 11 points on the pitch, which is enough to not be in the relegation zone.”

Dux Logroño, Copa de la Reina opponents

“We’re expecting a match like a Primera Iberdrola match. They’re a very strong team, that were in the top flight last season. They’re third at the moment. They want to go back up. It’s a cold stadium, and it will be a special match for them. We’re also really looking forward to it.”
