The Barcelona tactician hailed the performance of Sergi Roberto, who was deployed at right-full back for the clash.

The 24-year-old played a starring role on the right, registering two assists on the night.

"It depends on the situation," Enrique told reporters in a news conference.

"I think there is no better [player on the] right … than Sergi Roberto.

"I have seen many games, and I can't see a better player than him for this position, to play for Barcelona, because we are a team with a lot of possession. 

"But he can [also] play inside or [as a] pivot. I love that he feels good playing at that position. It is very good for us to have a versatile player like him … it gives us a lot of [options].
