Enrique's troops remain top of the standings along with Sevilla, and the 44-year-old says that defeat in the Spanish capital has simply reinvigorated his team's hunger to win the title.
"It's never nice for a Barca fan to see their team lose [at the Bernabeu] but I am not especially upset about it. If anything, it's renewed our motivation," he told reporters.
"At the end of the day, we are joint leaders after nine games and for me it's much more important to be top of the league than to have beaten Real Madrid.
"I'd happily settle for getting beaten at the Camp Nou against Madrid, Atletico and anybody else as long as we end up winning the title."
