Liga BBVA – Rayo Vallecano 0-2 FC Barcelona
Messi and Neymar again fill up stat sheets. Coach Luis Enrique post game:
“In general, we are continuously improving”. FC Barcelona set a new record with their 7th clean sheet game to start off the 2014-15 season.
“The win has reinforced us. “The players had the right attitude and performed as they had to against an awkward and hard-working opponent.”
“More than the individual record for one player, it’s the overall performance of the whole team that matters to me. “The only stats that I really care about come at the end of the season, and will be the ones that tell us whether we deserve to win the title”.
We have improved in defence and we’re in fine condition” he said. “Our style is to create plays and for our opponent to create as few as possible. Generally, we are improving … At a ground like Vallecas it is essential to play intense football, and I think we got it just right.”
on Messi and Neymar.. “I hope they continue to develop this connection that they have because it gives us more options for getting in on goal.” And as for the goalkeepers… “all three of them transmit a huge sense of security and always choose the right options to deal with each situation.”
