As Barcelona heads to the Basque Country for the most difficult trip of the league season, the coach knows how hard it's going to be.

Luis Enrique spoke to the press on Friday to preview this Saturday's encounter with Real Sociedad at the Anoeta Stadium, a place where the Blaugrana have not won since 2007. Lucho already tasted defeat at San Sebastián, and he is aware of the toughness of the match awaiting for him.

In order to get a victory, the team needs great preparation and intensity. But even if they finally break the streak and leave the stadium with a win, that will not guarantee the La Liga title just yet.

"Ever since La Real got promoted nine seasons ago, Barça hasn't won there. There is something in that stadium. Something more than a perfect pitch and an offensive team regardless of the coach. It is something to think about and prepare for. It will not be easy.

"A win is not definitive for the title. There will be six games to go regardless of the results. We see how hard it is to win in La Liga, the Champions League and the Europa League. Until there is a mathematically guaranteed champion nothing is won. This will be a very hard visit, I don't believe there is a time in Spain with such a good record at home against us like them. This is the toughest away match in the entire league."
