Barcelona coach Louis Enrique has praised his side’s “attitude” in their 2-0 win over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.

The Catalans secured their seventh successive La Liga clean sheet against ten-man Vallecano at the Vallecas, with Jorge Morcillo and forward Javier Aquino both receiving their marching orders in the second half for a second bookable offense.

Lionel Messi landed the first punch on a resilient Rayo defence after 34 minutes and Neymar doubled their lead moments later to help Barca remain at the top of the standings.

“The win has reinforced us,” Enrique, whose side lost in the Uefa Champions League at Paris St-Germain in the midweek, told the club’s official website. “The players had the right attitude and performed as they had to against an awkward and hard-working opponent.

“We have improved in defence and we’re in fine condition. Our style is to create plays and for our opponent to create as few as possible. Generally, we are improving. At a ground like Vallecas it is essential to play intense football, and I think we got it just right.”

The coach also reserved plaudit for the two goal scorers, adding: “I hope they continue to develop this connection that they have because it gives us more options for getting in on goal.”
