Barcelona despite being dumped out of the UEFA Champions League by Roma are still having a brilliant season.

It was a fourth consecutive Copa del Rey title for Barca, and a special night for Iniesta in particular ahead of his expected departure at the end of the season.

Speaking after Barca's 5-0 Copa del Rey final triumph over Sevilla, in which Iniesta scored the fourth goal, Rakitic expressed his desire to see his team-mate stick around.

"I feel good but I am aware that at big teams when there is an elimination there is a cataclysm", he said.

The veteran midfielder is considering a move to the Chinese Super League and this could be his last cup final for Barcelona - and he made sure it was one to remember.

Speaking after the game, the head coach, who won the Copa del Rey as a player with Barca said: "We were eager to win the trophy, the players and the club itself".

Stephen Curry Unlikely To Return Before Game 3 Of 2nd Round
If the Trail Blazers fight off elimination, New Orleans and Portland could play Games 5 (Tuesday), 6 (Thursday) and 7 (Saturday). As talented as the other three All-Stars are, the Warriors are a much more formidable team with Curry on the floor.

Suarez scored again before halftime with a low shot after picking up a great throughball by Messi and fending off a defender while entering the area.

Ivan Rakitic is desperate for Andres Iniesta to quash speculation over his Barcelona future and commit to remaining at the club where he has established himself as "one of the greatest players in history".

He also stressed that Sevilla acted too timidly. There are very strong emotions, the affection and respect that people have for me is something that I am very much grateful for. It gives a unusual feeling because we were eliminated in the Champions League and this gives me the impression that we could have gone further in the competition.

Besides the goals from Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho, it was Iniesta's finish stood out to make the Barcelona captain become the man of the moment.

"On Tuesday at the board meeting we will take the decisions".
