Luis Enrique had a hard time hiding his satisfaction with way his team played against Huesca. "It's hard to imagine a game better than this," said the coach, who emphasized the' "mentality, attitude and defence" his players showed on Tuesday night. Barça's 8-1 victory sent them into the last 16 of the Spanish Cup.

The coach explained that these types of games "are not easy," and even less so against a team like Huesca, who were "much better than the division they're playing in." He had special praise for his team's defence tonight. "We played a great game on defence. Very good."

He was also very happy to see the 45,000 spectators who shrugged off the late start and came to Camp Nou to see the match.
