In the second half, Barca were able to rise to release 16 extra shots, and eight of them to see the field.

"This is a very interesting game and both get a lot of praise," said Enrique as reported by Football Espana.

"This is a game that is very demanding of yourself, but it's hard to explain why (a team can play very different) in a complex game like this."

"Athletic will always demand a lot from you, and they can drown us in the first half. But we can still find the right solution."

"We are always faithful to our playing style. We won three games (against Athletic), and it's very difficult," he added.(cas / nds)
