LUIS ENRIQUE – WE HAVE TO PLAY TO ELIMINATE JUVENTUS- UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2016/17

Press conference of Luis Enrique before the match of Champions League against Juventus

FC Barcelona coach Luis Enrique Martínez has warned that to eliminate Juventus “football will have to play well. Their numbers are spectacular, at the height of their history, but we have the goal of always: make a great match, regardless of the stage. It will be difficult”. The coach did not want to analyze the situation of the possible sanctioning of Neymar and expressed his confidence in the squad: “We are more than capable to supply Busquets, it is normal for a player to see cards”

“Sergio Busquets is a crucial player for us; just look at his statistics and you will understand how important he is. However, suspensions are normal in a competition like this and we must be ready to replace him in the best possible way”. Enrique explained.

Regarding the final of Berlin, he has warned that “it is a positive memory, but it will have nothing to do with the final” and considers that the defeat of Malaga does not have to be a spur: “At this point the player already Is more than attentive. It’s very attractive the competition, and more face the semifinals, I do not think I have to see what happened before. ” He also believes that 6-1 has little to do now: “Notros we have no previous results, eight teams are in quarters and it will depend on who develops a better game, which is more successful in the areas … Of many details.

I have watched many Juve matches and they are always trying to impose their own game in every part of the pitch. They will do the same tomorrow, but you must put that question to Allegri. I can only tell you what we will do. We will try to win, as we always do. I have only good memories of my experience in Italy. I had the chance to experience a new culture which I enjoyed a lot.

There are a few different players compared to the Berlin final. Juve are still a great team, but I cannot say if they are better or worse than two years ago. I have great memories of that final, but this game is completely different. Both sides are definitely confident about their chances. I certainly don’t need to motivate players for a quarter-final against a team like Juventus.

He has defended André Gomes and does not think it fair to blame him.For him Barça played well against Sevilla and also in Malaga: “Both games were good matches. In Malaga we were higher and penalized a play in particular. The result was unfair. We can not go crazy when a defeat comes or when we win with clarity. ”

Although he must have a forecast that keeps for himself, he has not externalized what Juventus expects: “I have seen him press high, I have seen him withdraw .. dominate all records. I can tell you what we will do; Make our game, looking for victory from the beginning. “
