Sergi Roberto: We want to win the Double next week

Barcelona defender Sergi Roberto is determined to end the season with two domestic titles, after the Catalans defended their La Liga title in 2018-19.

Ernesto Valverde's side now face Valencia in next weekend's Copa del Rey final, and a win would give them back to back domestic doubles for the first time since 2016.

With their Champions League disappointment casting a cloud over their end of season push for honours, Roberto is clear in what he and his team mates want.

"Today's game (against Eibar) serves us well as preparation for the Copa del Rey final next week.

"We are motivated for the final and we will prepare well this week.

"We all want to go away on holiday at the end of the season with two titles won."

Defeat to Liverpool ended their push for a first Champions League title since 2015, but the Spanish international is happy with how the season has developed at the Camp Nou.

"Winning the league is what marks a team out as the best side in their country, and we have been the best across the whole season.

"In the Champions League we were eliminated, and that is disappointing, but in the league we have had a very good season."
