But the Argentina is mindful of Barcelona's ability to bounce back from the dead after their stunning turn-around against Paris St Germain in the last eight.
After a historic comeback in the last round, the Spanish club needs another match of epic proportions to reach the Champions League semifinals following Tuesday's 3-0 loss at Juventus. The odds are surely against it.
For his part, former Italian midfielder, Demetrico Albertini, warned his former team, Barcelona, of the seriousness of his opponent, showing his support for Barcelona's players by saying that his heart would be with them during their game against Juventus.
"It was a hard first half, very similar to the one in Paris and the second was much better", he was quoted as saying by ESPN. But we are a great team and can work together to qualify.
Rather than blame his players for another underwhelming performance, Enrique said if anyone deserved to be fingered for the defeat, then it was him. "As coach, for me it's inexplicable how they were so much better than us", he said afterwards.

Their final three matches are trips to Aston Villa and Bristol City plus a home match against play-off hopefuls Huddersfield Town. He said: "I went over the park two weeks ago and coached some under 10s". "It's a big club and it's a challenge, a big challenge.
"We knew it was going to be a game like this, Barcelona left many spaces behind, attacked a lot and left gaps that we knew we had to take advantage of".
A report from Mundo Deportivo claimed Dybala had "decided to leave Juventus at the end of the season" and "La Joya" was intent on playing in Primera Liga with the Catalan giants. The Argentine repeated the trick on 22 minutes and Giorgio Chiellini made it 3-0 after the break with a strong header from a corner.
"Fortunately I have a big squad and the decisive figures may well be those who didn't play this game".
"It's the second time this has happened", reflected Luis Enrique. Given that Barca did manage to win despite being 4-0 down against PSG, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri is not getting carried away.
'I understand the comparisons and expectations on me but I do not want to be the new Messi or the Messi of the future'. "In Barcelona, it will be different and we have to try and score a goal".
