Luis Enrique: We are two teams aiming to win the Champions League


Barcelona coach Luis Enrique rejected claims that his side will start as favourites in tonight's Champions League clash against Manchester City.

The 44-year-old took over at Barcelona last summer and is aiming to bring the Champions League back at the Camp Nou.

"I don't think there is a favourite," Enrique told reporters.

"It is dangerous to speak of favourites in the Champions League - you have to demonstrate yourself on the field.

"We are two teams aiming to win the Champions League.

"City have made new signings but so have we. City have the same manager but we made a change when Gerardo Martino left."

The Spanish giants suffered a surprise defeat against Malaga on Saturday and Luis Enrique says a change in mentality is important ahead of tonight's game.

"After losing it is always good to have a game three days later," he said.

"[Especially] in a stadium like this against one of the other favourites to win the Champions League.

"It is more than enough motivation [but] we need to change mentality for the Champions League and have got two games against a strong opponent.

"We need to make the best of our game to show we are the superior side."
