Striker Lucas Pérez was the protagonist in the stadium's press room before the match against Elche. "It's a special match because of the circumstances in the standings we are in. I'm very happy with the team's work throughout the week. I was at Elche during the first round, it's going to be nice to face them and we'll fight for the three points."
Elche. "They have to come here to win and do their job. This is soccer. The standings say they are saved, but they are going to come here to win. I see them as having had a great second half, I see them as strong and they're not going to give us anything. Neither Elche nor any other team will come here to win."
The virtues of both teams. "We will try to counteract Elche's virtues and we will try to highlight our virtues, which we also have. All teams are very good in LaLiga Santander. We come from two games of conceding early, we commented on it, we know we have to keep working and that the opponent also plays. I trust in the support of our fans."
Importance of Saturday's match. "It is a final because we have to win. Salvation depends on winning, especially at home. We are focused on Elche. We have to get to the Elche game, win and then we'll talk about the next game we have."
The team is in good spirits. "I see the team well, with confidence. I see a plus in the team's morale. Offensively we are doing well, defensively except for the Athletic game which was a bit of bad luck, the rest we have been good. We have to continue with this good atmosphere that we have and we have to materialize it for Saturday's match."
