We are still exhausted from the PSG win - Luis Enrique says as he defends Barca loss to Deportivo

Luis Enrique said Barcelona's efforts in their historic 6-1 Champions League win over Paris St-Germain played a part in their shock 2-1 defeat to Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday.
Barca were looking to extend their lead at the top of La Liga to four points, but instead lost in the league for the first time since October 2 on a ground where they won 8-0 last year. Luis Suarez equalised soon after half-time for the visitors, but Alex Bergantinos headed in the winner in the 74th minute to bring Barcelona back down to earth after their dramatic comeback against PSG on Wednesday.

Enrique said “Only someone who has lived what we lived this week can understand what it means, but professionals need to know how to cope with these situations. We knew it would be difficult here but what happens before a game always has an impact in the next. It's better to arrive at a game feeling euphoric than pessimistic, we were focused, but we still lost.”
