Wednesday was a tough night for Barcelona and coach Luis Enrique, who suffered his worst loss as Blaugrana coach after a 4-1 destruction handed out by Celta Vigo at the Balaídos. The manager talked to the press after the game, and while he did highlight the good things done by the opposition, he mentioned that his team needs to improve its ability to finish chances in order to avoid more results like this in the future.

Here's a few highlights from Lucho's conference:

"This game goes to show just how difficult La Liga is.

"What decided this game is how well Celta played. It was highly effective football from them. It was very good. We tried to create problems, but we suffered a lot in one-on-one situations. When a team has played better than you, then there is nothing much that you can say. I’d rather lose to a team that plays like Celta did today, without any tricks, purely winning through their football. I congratulate them and hope they can carry on playing like that.

"In terms of intensity, we did well. We had six or seven chances to score. The problem is that in the first games of this season we have been struggling to turn those chances into goals."
