LUIS ENRIQUE PLEASED AS BARCA TAKE CONTROL OF SUPERCOPA

The Spanish champions return home to Camp Nou with a two-goal cushion against the Andalucians after Luis Suarez and Munir made the difference in the opener

Luis Enrique lauded Barcelona after their first-leg win over Sevilla in the Supercopa de Espana, though he warned the tie is far from over.

Barcelona came, saw and conquered as the Spanish champions defeated Sevilla 2-0 at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Sunday.

After a goalless opening half and losing captain Andres Iniesta and Jeremy Mathieu to injuries, Luis Suarez and Munir El Haddadi struck to give Barca a two-goal cushion heading to Camp Nou for Wednesday’s return leg, much to Luis Enrique’s delight.

“We continue with the same ambition as always. This team knows sacrifice and we are competing for all the titles and we got a great result,” Luis Enrique said.

“We played a good game both defensively and offensively especially in the second half. I’m very pleased with everything.”
