Barcelona manager Luis Enrique is really excited with his team ahead of the UEFA Champions League quarter-final match against Paris Saint-Germain.

According to Lucho, the team is at its best physically, and fatigue will not be an issue in Tuesday's clash. Enrique is confident on his team's chances because of the experience acquired after playing the same opponents three times in the same season. And even with the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lucho has a "good feeling" about tomorrow's game. Check out his pre-match press conference highlights:

"The result of the first leg is good but it is not definitive. We need to play really well to to get through the tie."

"The idea is the same as before the first leg: to have the ball. That brings with it putting pressure on our rivals." "We have to be prepared because there could be a game similar to the first leg or totally different."

"If our opponents put us under pressure, we have the wherewithal to deal with it. Seeing up to which point our opponents put pressure on us is one of the most exciting aspects of the game.

"We know that the fans will be there for us because it is a very attractive fixture and that is a guarantee. It’s makes us stronger.

"Leo comes into the game in good condition, in great form. His 400 goals is a figure that is impossible to repeat.

"I have only have praise for Luis Suárez’s work. Settling into a new city is always a handicap and every player needs time to adapt.

"Iniesta is available and Mathieu has a knock but he also will be available.

(The return of Ibrahimovic and Verratti) "In footballing terms is not an issue because PSG will keep playing with the same style, but it will add to their individual quality, since they have a lot of potential.

"Perhaps we will change the system, but it won’t be a question of one player playing or not, but in function of if we can create problems for our rivals."


Interesting statement that last one. Lucho changed the system to a 3-4-3 the first time those teams played at Camp Nou, and Barça absolutely dominated that one. Could a similar scheme be used tomorrow?
