Luis Enrique isn't celebrating anything yet, despite a terrific display from his team on Tuesday / MIGUEL RUIZ-FCB

The Camp Nou witnessed some beautiful goals on Tuesday evening and Luis Enrique was the first man to appreciate that. “I don’t remember ever seeing a game with quite so many spectacular goals” he glowingly said afterwards. “When the team is as effective as that, they’re unstoppable.”

“I want to congratulate the team” he continued. “Things could have turned difficult today but the players resolved the situation in the best possible way”.

Here is a selection of other comments made after the game by Luis Enrique:

Goal creation

“We created a lot of chances, a lot of pressure situations. The team was well positioned.”

“What I like are the things that enable us to create these goalscoring chances.”

Top form

“Who can guarantee that we’ll keep up this high standard of play? Football can produce all kinds of surprises.”

“We’re not going to start taking it easy. We know there are still four games left to play. Are we’re up against a very dignified opponent in Real Madrid.”

“We’re not thinking about what might happen, we’re thinking about doing everything possible to make sure it happens.”

Solid defence

“We don’t only have a team that creates goalscoring opportunities. We also know how to defend. There is the attacking side to what we do, but also the defensive side.”

“There is still room for improvement. I don’t doubt that we can still get better. But I don’t remember ever seeing so many great goals in the same game.”

Xavi the legend

“I have known Xavi since I was a player and he was just coming up from the youth team. He’s a player from another galaxy and he can play as long as he wants. He’s very strong physically. Get the ball to him, and he’ll always get it back to you, he never loses that quality. We all know how much Barça means to him and he’ll decide to do what’s best for Barça.”

And we have to be happy about that because one of our objectives this season was two have a forward line that could make a difference. I hope things carry on the way that they are now.”
