Luis Enrique attended Barça TV after today's meeting with Al-Ahli. The first things the coach did was to evaluate the outcome of Monday's Champions League Round of 16 draw which pitted the Blaugranas with Paris Saint-Germain in the next round: “We are used to having interesting draws and what we can say, is that we are not really too surprised. These are the kinds of team who we usually are drawn against. We've done what we needed to do to be able to play the return leg at home and we will do everything possible to get through the tie and advance. We know PSG because we've played them before”.

Catalan derby next

As for this evening's game in Doha, Luis Enrique said: “We treated the game as seriously as we could. What we want is to recover as soon as possible so that we are ready for Sunday's game”
