Barca not lucky to snatch win, insists Enrique
The Spanish international pounced after Diego Alves had made a great save from Neymar's header to ensure Barca close to within two points of leaders Real Madrid. "We had faith until the end at a very difficult place to come to and where no one had won before today." "The result will boost the team. Of course I am happy, but even more than the three points I am happy with how we played against a difficult opponent that pressurises you like very few others." The 43-year-old man was rescued by firefighters from the Manzanares river near the Vicente Calderon stadium, where Deportivo went on to lose 2-0 to Atletico Madrid, but died of cardiac arrest shortly afterwards. "What happened around the Calderon doesn't represent football. We need to eradicate violence from football and from society." Valencia boss Nuno Espiritu Santo was left to lament the chances his side failed to convert in the second-half. "We had good moments in the match and very clear opportunities to score. Barca also had chances to give them their due," he said. "But we had such clear chances and could easily have won."
