"Both teams had their moments and had chances," Griezmann said after the match.

"We drew and we were good, had chances.

"We tried to score a third, but it wasn't to be.

"Both teams created chances to score a third and win.

"The Real Sociedad coach made two changes and they helped them a lot. They had lots of attacking players.

"I'm never going to celebrate [against Real Sociedad]," he said.

I scored goals at the old Anoeta. I have lots of respect for those that gave me everything."
