However, Barcelona has qualified for final of Copa del Rey consecutively four times and so, Enrique has thought that they deserves to be the finalist and worthy enough to take the throne.

At the Camp Nou in yesterday night, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona faced each other where players were given plenty of yellow and red cards. Though, at the beginning, Atletico started to attack first but first 40 minutes, no teams can scored a single goal. But, just two minutes before of the first half, Luis Suarez scored the match’s first goal. But in the second half, Atletico scored a goal and made equality. So, the match finished with draw.

Though, Barca avoided a defeat but they made a price for that. Their regular striker Luis Suarez was given a red card and suspended for the next Copa del Rey match which will be the final. Along with Suarez, Sergi Roberto was also got a red card and will miss the next match.

After the match, in the press conference Luis Enrique stated that it was very difficult to move to the final but they finally did it. So, he thought that they should be happy for that but not for how they play. It should be for they are going to make a history. He also added that in last 90 minutes, they are not the best but according to the first leg performance, they are worthy enough to move to the final. Enrique also wants to discuss with his players about today’s match where players made some mistake.
