Williams He also referred to the final against Barça on April 17 in Lezama this morning, although logically this week they are focused on Saturday’s against Real. “The two finals are going to be just as difficult. There is no favorite in any of them. The three teams that have arrived are on their own merits, we have made great qualifying rounds. They are going to be beautiful games, we have the option of making history and we are going to try, put the icing on the cake, although now we are not looking at the date of the match against Barça ”, he said.

The forward recognizes the opportunity they have in their hands. “The team is eager, but you have to be calm, you have to enjoy the day to day. Finals are not played every year, you have to enjoy them. We have to continue doing what has made us get here, enjoy each training session, each indication, each divided ball … The better we are mentally and physically, we will have more chances of winning. This is what we have to dedicate to, enjoy the moment, the passion we have dreamed of since we were little. This is what will bring us closer to the title.

On a more personal level, he acknowledges that he likes to play against Real: “Playing a Basque derby is very special, I have seen many since I was little. Today I am lucky to play a historic final. I like to play these games, hopefully I will do it as I have been doing, appear in decisive matches and be able to win the title ”.

At the time, he said he wanted to vaccinate the Real before a derby. Today he has not been so explicit. “Every game I feel like I’m going to score a goal, I have confidence in myself, in what I do. I’m really looking forward to Saturday, to help the team, regardless of whether I score a goal or not. If I have a good day and the luck of each one smiles at the rival goal … Helping the team with a goal of mine will always be special ”, he stated.
