Luis Enrique: It's incredible we only scored once


Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said it was "incredible" his side only scored once after they slumped to a 2-1 defeat to Sevilla on Saturday.

Second-half goals from Michael Krohn - Dehli and Vicente Iborra were enough for the hosts to see off the Spanish champions, who pulled one back via Neymar's penalty.
The Catalans hit the woodwork three times as they went in search of an equaliser, with Enrique admitting luck just wasn't on their side.
"We can only congratulate Sevilla for the win and for their game," he told reporters after the match.
"Both teams had many chances. It's almost incredible we only scored one in this game. Sevilla enjoyed a great 10-minute spell.
"You can never be happy when you lose."
Barcelona had to make do without Lionel Messi and captain Andres Iniesta for the encounter, but Gerard Pique has called for his side not to make excuses and focus on getting back to winning ways instead.
"After the international break, we must start winning and cannot afford more setbacks. Barcelona have to be at the top," the Spain international said.
"Of course we miss Messi and Iniesta, but Sevilla also have injuries so that cannot be an excuse.
"The ball didn't want to go in today. They got through twice and scored, we paid for that."
The defeat at Sanchez Pijuan is Barcelona's second defeat in three league outings, although Luis Suarez believes the latest loss differed greatly from their 4-1 collapse at Celta Vigo last Wednesday.
"Against Celta we didn't play well, but today we feel like we did everything we could," the striker said. "We deserved at least one point."
The Blaugrana next host Rayo when La Liga resumes on October 17.
