Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has said the La Liga is “the most difficult” division in Europe as Barcelona hopes to defend its title at Granada today.

The Catalans would have secured back-to-back League titles if the team wins over Granada this weekend in a match set to kick off later today.
Luis Enrique believes that though it seems hard to ignore the controversies surrounding ‘briefcases’ in La Liga’s final games, Barcelona has the confident to perform when the chips are down. Barca has scored a total 21 goals and conceded none in the last four games since the team’s return to its winning ways.
“There’s only one game for us, and it’s against Granada,” the Coach said at a Press conference.
“If we’re not able to win then we’ll look elsewhere, but until 95 minutes I’m not interested in anything other than Granada.
“We’re a team who, in that sense, are different to the rest because our players have won many things for both club and country.
“They’re used to all kinds of outcomes. We have to focus on the positives and the things that give you victories, which we usually carry out.
“We’ve had very good feelings all season, despite our momentary blip.
“The team are back at their usual level and we must now continue our daily work at Granada by creating chances and conceding as few as possible.
“We’ve improved our performance levels thanks to our defensive shape.
“Balancing attack with defence has been the key to our form at end of the season.
“This League, given the level of its participants, is the most difficult in Europe.”
