Victory by the minimum difference in La Liga. The blackboard worked again when Barça most needed it. On their comeback to Balaídos, Luis Enrique reaffirmed the belief that nothing will be easy from here til the end of the season and he used as example the 90 minutes of today against his former team.
"Front us there were some players on blue that were flying. You can't always create more chances than the rival"
"At the second half we had the game more controled, we were able to create more but it was very difficult for us. We didn't have any doubt that the match was going to be like this"
"Individual quality of players is definitive. Today it was another time from a free kick. We knew it would be a difficult match"
"Our idea was to have the possession of the ball, in case that they don't let us play, having solutions with the attacking line, but there were situations where Celta Vigo's players were at a very high level"
Comeback to Vigo
"Very happy to be able to greet friends and people that I worked with during a year. It's always good to come back to Balaídos"
"From the start we will be judged by results and we are on this way. When you win against rivals like today with high football level, victory reinforces us and it prepares you for what's coming"
"Xavi is the most important player, the one that played more matches in the history of the Club. I think he's very focussed on this ending of the season and he'll try to win titles. After that we will respect the decision he takes."
