    Where the water is warm, the drinks are cold... and I don't know the names of the players.

    Lucho: "Tactical switch was key"

    "We changed the shape at half-time, pushing Sergi Roberto into midfield and that allowed us to generate more superiority in midfield," Luis Enrique explained in his postgame news conference.



    "Sometimes it was Sergi Roberto in there, other times it was [Samuel] Umtiti, depending on what benefitted us best at the time. But that's how we were able to find Leo Messi more and create more chances."

    "It was a great game. I thought it would be as it was a match between two teams that are attacking and take risks."

    "We had chances at the beginning of the game but nothing came of them, with Luis and Neymar making a mess of one, which doesn't usually happen."

    "Then Sevilla scored and they had other chances, too. But the goal at the end of the first half helped us back into the game and we were great in the second half. We deserved to win and could even have killed the game of earlier."

    "We knew how difficult it would be," he continued, "but the state of the pitch, which didn't help either team, and the pressing from Sevilla made everything even more difficult."

    "It was a big test and it showed what the players are made of. We know what usually happens to the big teams after Champions League weeks and I'm really happy with the victory. These type of wins strengthen you even more."

    "I'd like to highlight Denis Suarez. Every time he's had a chance he's taken advantage by performing well."

    "It's difficult to perform when you're not starting regularly, but Denis is managing to do that. With that attitude, when you see what he's doing, you have to congratulate him and hold him up as an example of what a good professional is."

    How about we start playing on the counter more often

    Seems the only way we're able to score these days

    It's hard to play on counters against opponents that park the bus. We are using counters when we can. Of course we should be more efficient with them but that's on players (especially Suarez whose realisation is not really good so far this season) more than on Lucho.

    Nearly impossible against most teams. There's only a handful of teams who can control games and attack us often.

    That's why we have some big score lines against RM in the past few years, it's attack vs attack and ours usually is usually better.

    I think we definitely have to adjust the rotation depending on who we are against.
