La Liga day 1: Athletic Bilbao 0-1 FC Barcelona

Luis Enrique reacts:

“I think we started the [La Liga] championship the way we did last season, at a very high level. Overall, I’m satisfied. We created chances, a lot more than [Athletic]. Towards the end it got tough for us, of course, because the score was so close. We kept Athletic from creating danger and I think we played a very complete match,”

“Our wing-backs are very important, both defensively and offensively. They help us stretch the field.”

“They [the wing-backs] were very good, especially Sergio Roberto, who came in unexpectedly and played a very complete match. Jordi Alba too.”

“We have to wait and see what the doctors say and see how the players come along. Injuries are part of football, it’s a very demanding sport there is more risk [early in the season]. They don’t seem serious.”

Luis Suarez who scores the unique goal: “these games inspire us to win the league … we won the game and that’s what’s important, we had to wait for the [right] moment to create some scoring chances.
