Barcelona duo Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta are confident the Catalan club can win the Champions League again this season.
“London is a special place, and Wembley a special stadium for Barcelona,” Iniesta told UEFA's official website, referring to Barca's 3-1 win over Manchester United there in the 2011 Final. The Final will be held be there again this year to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the English Football Associaton.
“It will be very difficult to reach the Final, but we will do everything we can. We will fight until the end.”
“There are no easy games in the Champions League,” said Messi. “From personal experience, I can say that every team in the competition came make life difficult for us.”
The Argentine international then commented on the semi-final loss to Chelsea in last year's competition.
“We did things right, because although there are people who might not pay much attention, we were able to win the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup.
“Obviously we didn't win the Champions League, and that is a major goal of ours, but I think we are ready to try and win it this year.”
Iniesta also gave his thoughts on the work of new Blaugrana Coach Tito Vilanova.
“Every Coach is different. It is not about Pep Guardiola and Tito Vilanova – every person is different. Their working philosophy and methodology is very similar, but I have confidence that everything is going very well.”
Barca begin their quest for a third Champions League trophy in five seasons with a home game against Spartak Moscow on Wednesday.
