Cape Town - Barcelona boss Luis Enrique revealed his side is as focused as ever in their bid to win La Liga and are prepared for the challenges Getafe present ahead of their match on Tuesday.

Enrique admitted victory over Getafe is vital in the run-in to the end of the season as Real Madrid are just two points behind the Catalans with seven games of the season remaining.

The 44-year-old manager revealed he would not make the mistake of looking at Madrid's remaining fixtures, choosing instead to focus on the job his side has to do to stay top.

"The only certain thing is that there is little difference between us and Madrid and it's going to be really close," he was quoted as saying by Football Espana.

"However, I don't think I'll be making the error of looking at their remaining games. I'm concentrating on Getafe because it is a vital clash if we want to win the League.

"For any side coming to the Camp Nou it is a showcase event. Last year Getafe drew with us at home and we couldn't beat them in the first round of fixtures. They are solid in defence and have quality.

"My players are aware of the difficulties in beating any opponent. We haven't relaxed or looked relaxed in any game and we must be professional, disciplined, and attack-minded, because our opponents will never give up."
