The league returns this Saturday at 4.00 PM CET with Barça in action at the Camp Nou against Athletic Bilbao. It’s a team Luis Enrique knows well after playing in nine games against them between 1996/97 and 2003/04.
Of those games, one that he’ll never forget was in 2000/01 under manager Serra Ferrer and which ended in a famous 7-0 win. Luis Enrique scored a hat-trick against a side that featured the likes of Etxeberría, Julen Guerrero and Urzaiz, a veritable rout that saw the Catalans score as many as six before the half-time whistle had sounded. The current FCB manager got the first two goals as well as the fifth, while the other players to find the target that unforgettable day were Cocu (2), Abelardo and Overmars.
