Barca enjoyed a 5-1 win.
"They were brave, daring. They came out to match us man for man and they created problems for us, but that left us with more space, too. We had to adapt to the game. I think that we were brilliant from the off. If we'd come out asleep, we would have suffered," said Enrique.
On dropping Sergi Busquets, he added: "I contemplated what to do. Busquets is amazing but he didn't rest during the international break. I'll try to manage [his] minutes because we want him to be in the best possible condition at the end of the season, although I prefer to have him on the pitch."
