Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has insisted that his side are ready for their La Liga opener against Elche on Sunday evening.

The Catalan outfit will enter the match in buoyant fashion, according to Enrique, who will lead out Barcelona for the first time in a competitive match at the Camp Nou tomorrow.

"It has been a great week in terms of the team dynamic and we are going into the game in the same buoyant mood as we did before the Gamper," he told reporters.

"We know Elche will pose us problems because tactically and defensively they're such a well-structured unit.

"We may have high hopes for the future, but we're more concerned with the present, and that means the game with Elche. We're mentally prepared for this and keen to get our League campaign off to a winning start."

Barcelona finished second behind Atletico Madrid last term as they failed to win a trophy.
