Barcelona is set to face a tremendous challenge on Monday, when the Blaugrana have to turn around a 4-0 defeat to Athletic Bilbao in order to win the Spanish Supercup and keep the dream of a sextuple alive.

It is a giant challenge, but one that Luis Enrique is ready to face. In his pre-match press conference on Sunday, the coach talked about the difficulty of the game ahead, but is confident that his team has what it takes to make history at Camp Nou. Here's a few highlights from his presser:

"The comeback is a challenge that is within the team’s capabilities. It would be arrogant to say we will do it but we will try sure."

"The stimulus is to do something that no-one has done before, that’s how difficult it is. We will try to give Barça fans a great night."

"Last season we scored 4 or mor goals in 18 matches. We will be fresher than in the first leg and when Barça plays, anything can happen."

"It will be difficult. We are in a situation in which we cannot concede goals. We have to score more than 4 but also keep a clean sheet. If they score we will have to score six, and that is a big ask."

"We were not at our best [in the first leg]. The mistakes were by the whole team, just as the victories are."
