Barcelona have another impossible task ahead of them next week when they host Juventus. They have to overturn a 3-0 scoreline against a Juventus team that has only conceded 2 goals in their 9 Champions League games.
But with the fans looking to draw strength from anywhere possible, they were shocked by the comments of Luis Enrique after the game.
The Barcelona manager had told the press: “I find it difficult to believe in the comeback today, more difficult than in Paris.”
“It doesn’t matter if I consider the result fair or not, the first half was a shipwreck.”
“The game felt like I was experiencing the third half of the Paris Saint-Germain game. I have to analyse the game deeply but the positioning and some things were way below the level required.
However, he has now clarified his comments. He hints the comments were made in the heat of the moment and shouldn’t e taken seriously.
Enrique said: “People tend to take comments straight after games very literally, but they’re conditioned by what has just happened.
“I don’t know what I said, so no reason to comment on that. We’re professionals, we know things can change quickly. I have no doubt that we have a chance to turn around the tie, look what happened after Paris.
“It’s about getting back to winning ways and doing things right, starting with La Real. Then we will think about the Champions League.”
Luis Enrique believes in comeback in against Juventus
And then he went on to assure fans: “We are not going to give up, we are going to fight until the end,” he said in a press conference to preview Saturday’s Real Sociedad game.
“After Paris [losing 4-0 to PSG] we had a long wait, this time it is an express tie, so need to change things around quickly.
