1. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BARCELONA COACH LUIS ENRIQUE, SAYING:

“We are starting to be aware that we can do something big, something that has only been done once in recent history. Some players have the chance to repeat it, but it is a very difficult task. It has been hard to get to this point, but it means that you must have done something right over the season. But this is the last part of the season and it is going to be very hard to win the three titles. It really is. And whoever thinks it isn’t hard, is wrong. The players are aware and know that the fact that we are here is wonderful and makes us very optimistic. But that doesn’t mean that we will win three titles. For that, three great matches are needed.”

STORY: Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has little problem motivating his team for their match at Atletico Madrid on Sunday (May 17) – if they win they clinch the league title.

Barcelona are four points clear of bitter rivals Real Madrid and will make sure of a fifth La Liga title this weekend if they beat Atletico Madrid in the Spanish capital on Sunday (May 17).

Barca are four points clear of Real Madrid at the top of La Liga with two games left and and if they slip up at the Calderon, they have another chance to clinch the title at home to Deportivo La Coruna next weekend.

Last season, the Catalan side – under coach Gerardo Martino – lost the title against Diego Simeone’s team on the last day of the season with a 1-1 draw that left Atletico to claim a first league title for 18 years.

Barca were four points adrift of Real Madrid in La Liga at the turn of the year and a defeat at Real Sociedad in early January, when Enrique left Lionel Messi on the bench in the first half, set tongues wagging about a possible rift between the pair.

The club also had to deal with a series of off-field issues, including charges of tax fraud in the signing of Neymar and a FIFA ban from the transfer market for breaking rules on signing foreign youth players.

Barca’s troubles have now largely been forgotten with Luis Enrique’s side through to the final of both the Champions League and the King’s Cup, where they will play Juventus and Athletic Bilbao respectively.

The 45-year-old coach was cautious when asked about the possibilities of the triple.

“We are starting to be aware that we can do something big, something that has only been done once in recent history. Some players have the chance to repeat it, but it is a very difficult task.

“It has been hard to get to this point, but it means that you must have done something right over the season. But this is the last part of the season and it is going to be very hard to win the three titles. It really is. And whoever thinks it isn’t hard, is wrong. The players are aware and know that the fact that we are here is wonderful and makes us very optimistic. But that doesn’t mean that we will win three titles. For that, three great matches are needed,” Luis Enrique said.

In a neat reversal, Real Madrid are playing in Barcelona while the Catalans are in Madrid. Real face Espanyol, both matches kicking off at 1700gmt.
