EN­RIQUE SEEKS MORE PRE­CISE BARCA FOR MAN CITY VISIT

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

BARCELONA coach Luis En­rique in­sisted his side will need an im­proved dis­play when faced with the very dif­fer­ent chal­lenge of for­mer Barca boss Pep Guardi­ola’s Manch­ester City after labour­ing to a 1-0 win over Granada yes­ter­day.

Barca travel to Manch­ester to­mor­row having thrashed Guardi­ola’s men 4-0 less than two weeks ago to take a com­mand­ing lead of Cham­pi­ons League Group C thanks to a Lionel Messi hat­trick.

How­ever, Messi, Luis Suarez and Ney­mar en­dured a rare off night in front of goal as mid­fielder Rafinha bagged the only goal against an ul­tra de­fen­sive-minded Granada.

“Now we will go to Manch­ester and in the­ory we will have a team that presses us high and we’ll be left al­most one against one,” said En­rique.

“You have to be very ef­fi­cient and pre­cise to over­come that pres­sure. If you over­come it, you are go­ing to have chances and, if not, the op­po­nent will win the ball in your half with qual­ity play­ers.”
