Luis Enrique at the Sánchez Pizjuán / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

"It was a game in which we had a lot of chances. It's almost unbelievable that we walk out of here with just one goal," said FC Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique at his post-game press conference following his team's 2–1 upset loss to Sevilla. The Barca coach chalked the defeat up to "ten minutes in the second half that hurt us." Sevilla, he lamented, "took advantage of the chances they had."

"You have to congratulate Sevilla on their effort and the final result," Luis Enrique continued, explaining that his team had plenty of chances on the counter due to the way the game played out. Nevertheless, he said, "Our game is about controlling play." When asked about chances created, the coach said, "We don't have the best numbers but I'm sure that'll change in the coming games."

It's pretty obvious that Barça performed far better the last time the two sides met, in August in the UEFA Super Cup. But, Luis Enrique said, this game was a very attractive matchup between two teams who "play to win and get the maximum number of points."
