Enrique: Barca in perfect shape

Cape Town - Barcelona boss Luis Enrique believes the way his side are currently playing means "there is nothing the opponent can do" to stop them from romping to victory.

The Catalan giants were again in ruthless form on Saturday as they hammered Getafe 6-0, giving them plenty of confidence heading into Wednesday's Champions League last-16, second-leg clash against Arsenal.

And, with the club undefeated in their last 37 games in all competitions, stretching back to October, Enrique is unsurprisingly confident of keeping the run going in midweek, especially as they hold a 2-0 lead over the Gunners.

"This is a unique team, different to the rest and which does things that make it seem like there is nothing the opponent can do," said Enrique.

"It is a great pleasure to be in this position."

"The ideas and the tempo with which we started made it very difficult for Getafe because we were so precise and quick when we moved the ball," added Enrique.

"At half-time, the game was already sewn up and that isn't due to the fault of the opponents, but because at this part of the season we are in fantastic form and the whole team has a lot of confidence."
