​Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has warned his team against complacency in the La Liga title race ahead of Thursday night's game against Rayo Vallecano, warning that the title is far from sewn up. 


Many pundits are already beginning to speculate that the Catalan club could repeat last season's treble of La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League, but Enrique rejected this suggestion out of hand at a pre-match press conference


Atletico Madrid won 3-0 on Tuesday to keep the gap at the top of the table to five points. Enrique said: "It affects us the same way as always, as always with three points for a win, any slip can be costly. Atletico are not slipping, they keep improving, and there is still a title race. We have never said anything different at any moment."

Barcelona have won their last 10 games against Rayo, but Paco Jemez's side are on a seven-game unbeaten run coming into the match. The relegation-threatened side have scored at least two goals in each of their seven unbeaten games, and Enrique admitted that he wasn't seeing the result as a foregone conclusion. 


"I would not trust at all heading into any game against Rayo, at home or away. For the team's identity, for what Paco gives them, the players know it will be a difficult game. Each ball will have to be battled for. They are open and uncomfortable games, regardless of the result."


When asked whether he would consider playing a rotated side for the match, he replied: "I always think about making changes. I have not yet thought about whether they will play all the games. I will do what I think is best. Don't worry - whatever I do will be best for the team. We will not take any risks."
