Luis Enrique: ‘Beating Getafe is key’

Luis Enrique believes victory over Getafe at the Camp Nou on Tuesday night will be vital to his team’s chances of winning La Liga.

The Blaugrana are two points clear of Real Madrid at the top of the table and, speaking at Press conference, the Barca boss made it clear he would not make the mistake of looking at Los Blancos’ fixtures.

“The only certain thing is that there is little difference between us and Madrid and it’s going to be really close,” he maintained.

“However, I don’t think I’ll be making the error of looking at their remaining games. I’m concentrating on Getafe because it is a vital clash if we want to win the League.

“For any side coming to the Camp Nou it is a showcase event. Last year Getafe drew with us at home and we couldn’t beat them in the first round of fixtures. They are solid in defence and have quality.

“My players are aware of the difficulties in beating any opponent. We haven’t relaxed or looked relaxed in any game and we must be professional, disciplined, and attack-minded, because our opponents will never give up.”
