Barça beat Real Sociedad with chances and efficiency both on attack and on defence, leaving a balance of 25 goals for and none against in the last seven games. According to Luis Enrique, it is a result of Barça’s superiority in "all aspects of the game." The coach emphasised  that his team’s good results show that "we have a plan and we know how to execute it to perfection. And to do this we need everyone's help."

Here are the highlights of what Luis Enrique had to say in his post-game press conference:

The game

"We knew the difficulty of the game. We played a very good first half and we created chances. The second half was intense, we wore them down a bit and increased our chances of winning."

"We played well in a game in which our rivals defended well. It was a complete game and we earned it."

"I don’t think the game was ever in jeopardy. We were good physically."


"I can only say wonderful things because he is a world class player … a complete professional. Whenever you need him, he’s there. As a coach, it is a great pleasure to have him on the team."

"Pedro came in and allowed Messi and Suárez to play more open."

"It's hard to tell a player that he has an important role when he doesn’t get many minutes. His goal was spectacular. A very difficult bicycle kick."
