“We had to earn the victory; in the first half they pressed us quite a lot”, said the midfielder.
Illara played a leading role in Anoeta as one of the starting eleven and scoring the first goal of the match. The midfielder summed up the encounter: “We had to earn the victory. In the first half they pressed us quite a lot. After the second goal the match broke up, there was more space and we took advantage of it”.

“Going home is always special. In expected the crowd to whistle, because they don’t like what I did, it’s what happens. I was focused on the match, which is what I had to do. I’m happy with the victory. There aren’t many games left now and our job is to win and hope that Barcelona and Atlético slip up”.

Past at Real Sociedad
“At Real I gave everything I had, the opportunity came up to go to Real Madrid and I took it. Now I’m trying to enjoy myself. San Sebastián has always been my home, Real Sociedad gave me everything”.
