Luis Enrique on the bench at the Benito Villamarín / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

Following the 2-0 victory away to Betis, which means Barça hold onto top spot in the championship, but now with just two games left to play, manager Luis Enrique shared his views with the media. Here’s a selection of post-match quotes from a man who’ll be enjoying a very happy flight back from Andalusia:

The game

“The league title is closer. We didn’t suffer at all in this match. The first half was a case of wearing them down and in the second we came out and finished the job. We are still top and not depending on other results going our way, so now we just have to focus on winning the two games we have left”.

“It’s been an incredible improvement. We defended like beasts and they only managed to create one chance. We have worked hard on defence all week. We need to limit the opposition’s chances, because that way we have more for ourselves.”

“This game was about total control, and on a nice pitch, albeit a bit dry. They played it very tight in their own half, but I liked what my players did”.

The title bid

“This is very difficult and highly competitive league. All three of us are having great seasons. We’re setting a very high standard, and I don’t think any of us are going to give anything up”.

“I never said we had won the league. We have to do our homework.”

“What we have to do is win both matches, focus on our own football and deal with games like we did today”.

“The Camp Nou will be packed for the game with Espanyol. The fans will be there for us because they know it’ll be a difficult game from start to finish”.
