Sergio González i Luis Enrique, amb les samarretes, al Power8 Stadium / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

Barça and Espanyol meet this Saturday at 4.00pm CET in the Catalan derby, which being a special fixture in the calendar, has its own traditions. One of those is the meeting of the two coaches, in this case Sergio González and Luis Enrique, and the customary photograph at the ground the day before the game. After appearing before the press, Luis Enrique made his way to the Power8 Stadium for the date with his opposite number.

The meeting between the coaching staff of both clubs was undertaken in the best of atmospheres. Luis Enrique and Sergio González are certainly no strangers after having met on the field on numerous occasions during their playing careers.

Luis Enrique will take charge of Barça for the very first time at what is now known as the Power8 Stadium, although he did take charge of a Celta Vigo side there last season. The Galicians went down to a 1-0 defeat that day, former blaugrana Sergio García scoring the only goal of the game. Therefore, the Asturian will be looking to open his account away at Espanyol and maintain Barça leaders in the table with just six games to go in the league season.
