Enrique: El Clasico Defeat No Longer Exists

Luis Enrique was philosophical in the wake of Barcelona's 2-1 defeat at the hands of El Clasico rivals Real Madrid.
 
 
The Catalans were in control of the clash as Gerard Pique powered home the opening goal just after the break, but Karim Benzema equalised and Cristiano Ronaldo scored a late winner.
 
The defeat brought an end to Barcelona's 39-game unbeaten run but they remain six points clear at the top of La Liga, and Enrique insists the players must put the defeat behind them.
 
"What happened can happen in any game," said the Barca manager.
 
"We have to go forward and stand up and think about the Champions League. We're leaders and the one that wins is the most consistent. So far, we are.
 
"For me, this game no longer exists. What's left is very important. We have to reinforce what we've been doing well and see what can be improved.
 
"We come from a lot of games without losing but defeat also teaches you things."
