Luis Enrique in training this week / MIGUEL RUIZ-FCB

“Convinced, no, really convinced.” That is how the FC Barcelona coach Luis Enrique is approaching the challenge of Monday ‘s historic comeback against Athletic Club in the second leg of their Spanish Super Cup final. “It’s a challenge that motivates us,” said Luis Enrique in a press conference ahead of the game at Camp Nou.

“The comeback is a challenge that is within the team’s capabilities. It would be arrogant to say we will do it but we will try sure.”

“The stimulus is to do something that no-one has done before, that’s how difficult it is. We will try to give Barça fans a great night.”

“Last season we scored 4 or mor goals in 18 matches. We will be fresher than in the first leg and when Barça plays, anything can happen.”

“It will be difficult. We are in a situation in which we cannot concede goals. We have to score more than 4 but also keep a clean sheet. If they score we will have to score six, and that is a big ask.”

“We were not at our best [in the first leg]. The mistakes were by the whole team, just as the victories are.”
