Victory at Las Palmas. A tough one. Barcelona are the league leaders now 9 points ahead of Atletico Madrid and 10 of Real Madrid. Both play tomorrow. These were Luis Enrique's quotes in his post-match press conference.
"The rythim wasn't slow. Maybe sometimes, but we suffered more counter-attacks than usual. The last ten minutes they showed they wanted one point".
"We knew that Las Palmas can have the ball during more time than others. They were well set up and it is difficult to pressure like this. When we don't have the ball we have to stay back and wait".
Matches every 3 days
"I think we were more effective than other days. Of course, when you play every 3 days, the only thing you can tell youserlf is to do like we are doing, continue like this. We have to improve some things as well".
"Another competition, matches of 180 minutes, difficult opponent".
"Arda had a yellow, sometimes he has the habit of tackling to recover the ball and I didn't want any risks".
