Enrique: Atletico Won't Surprise Us
Barcelona manager Luis Enrique revealed what he thought about drawing Atletico Madrid in the Champions League quarterfinals.
The Blaugrana boss admitted he was pleased to face an opponent he was familiar with, but added that he preferred not to play against a team from Spain.
He said: "Given all the precedents, we knew we'd have to face a tough opponent.
"The good thing is that they won't take us by surprise, as we both know each other already. We don't really like to play against teams from the same country, but it is quite a common thing to happen.
"If we get to the semi-finals, we now know what we'll have to face - a tough team."
On Barca's upcoming game against Villarreal on Sunday, Enrique added: "Their quality, and not just at home, makes them one of the best teams in the league. They play almost instinctively and are in nearly total control of their defensive framework."
