Luis Enrique didn’t say whether he thought Barça deserved anything more than a 2–2 draw at Sánchez Pizjuán after their first half performance.

The coach reiterated that he believes that the league championship will not be decided until the end. "Last year the league was decided on the last day. This year we are leaders before that."

Then, when I was seven or eight and started playing for the youth team, that's when the Barça colours began to really mean something special to me.

Where are they now? In the dugout, that’s where, and not just any dugout. Take a look at the picture above. It is nearly 19 years old now: 28 August 1996, the side that won the Spanish Super Cup. You will recognise some of the faces, and among them are four of the eight coaches in the Champions League quarter-finals: this week Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich face Julen Lopetegui’s Porto and Laurent Blanc’s Paris Saint-Germain take on Luis Enrique’s Barcelona. Their Barcelona, where they all played together.
