Ernesto Valverde looks ahead to Spanish Copa del Rey semi-final second leg in Valencia.

  • SOUNDBITE (Spanish): Ernesto Valverde, Barcelona coach.

    "We both are going to be faithful to our own style of play. They are a difficult team to overcome and they are quick on the counter-attack. But as they are below on the knockout marker, they will try to be more aggressive when attacking. They play at home and they will exploit their fans' pressure. I have no doubt that tomorrow there will be a tough match, the definitive one as one of the teams go to the final and the other go out. And both teams will do whatever they can to get to the final."

    (If Barcelona qualify, it will be the fourth Copa del Rey final in a row)

    "The players, the coaches and everybody here see the other finals as something that belongs to the past. Now we are writing the future of this season and what we want is to win to play the final. I know that Valencia will be motivated, because it is a great opportunity for them in front of their supporters, but we aren't less motivated than them."

    "I don't pay attention to this matters because I can't, because the games come one after the other. There are moments that I would like to stop everything to take a closer look at what we are doing and hug everybody and these sort of things. But when we have several matches, which is a good thing because this means that we are in all the competitions, there isn't time enough to enjoy it."
