Jose Mourinho has conceded it is difficult to find Real Sociedad’s weaknesses as Roma prepare for the first leg of their last-16 tie in the “super quality” Europa League.
Roma coach Mourinho has won the Europa League twice with Porto and Manchester United and guided the Giallorossi to the Conference League title last season.
The Serie A side are enjoying another good season, sitting fourth in the league and advancing past Salzburg in the previous round in Europe.
Now, Roma face La Real for the first time in UEFA competition, with the first leg taking place at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico.
Ahead of the match, Mourinho said of Roma’s opponents: “They are an excellent team, and it is difficult to find their weaknesses. They have a very good coach, and the team is doing very well.
“They are organised both defensively and offensively, with technically very good players.
“They are fourth [in LaLiga] behind the three giants who are always there; it’s really a quality team, and it can’t be said that we were lucky in the draw.”
