Rakitic warns Sevilla over 'difficult' return leg at Camp Nou

Rakitic warns Sevilla over 'difficult' return leg at Camp Nou

Barca lost to Rakitic's Sevilla 2-0 in the first leg of the Spanish Cup semi-final on Wednesday.

The Croat doesn't expect an 'easy' return fixture at Camp Nou in March.

“Barcelona are a team that has a lot of talent and a lot of ability to hurt you,” Ivan Rakitic said after Sevilla's 2-0 win over Barca in the first leg of the Spanish Cup semi-final on Wednesday, as quoted by Mundo Deportivo. “It won’t be easy.

“But we’ve gotten together very, very well, waiting for our moment. And in the end, it came and we’ve put together an interesting result, a very positive one for us.

“The important thing is to enjoy tonight, for all the Sevillistas to enjoy this moment. We must be happy as a team, but also be aware that it will be difficult there [at Camp Nou] because we’re going to play against one of the best teams.”

The ex-Barca midfielder scored against his former club in midweek. As he promised earlier this week, he didn't celebrate his strike. The Croat's side will travel to Camp Nou for the return fixture on March 3.
