Rakitic: Barca prepared for busy schedule

Ivan Rakitic believes Barcelona are ‘well prepared’ for a busy run-in to the season which sees them battling on two front.

The Catalans have eight league games remaining – where they will hope to catch Real Madrid – alongside the quarter finals of the Champions League against Juventus, while they also still have a Copa Del Rey final against Alaves to play.

"I'm very happy with this win because we've done very well," Rakitic told reporters after Wednedsay’s 3-0 win over Sevilla.

"In particular, we played good football in the first half and deserved the win.

"Now we know that every three or four days we have a difficult game and we know that we must be well prepared for that challenge.

“The treble? We shall see. We want to continue at this pace and play in the manner that we did against Sevilla.”
