ENRIQUE SEEKS MORE PRECISE BARCA FOR MAN CITY VISIT
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.”
