Iniesta reveals Wembley ´dream´

Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta has one eye on the Champions League final at Wembley.

Pep Guardiola’s side have one more obstacle to pass – Real Madrid in the two-legged semi-finals – in order to get to the illustrious London arena for this season’s finale on May 28.

But that has not stopped Iniesta from dreaming of Barcelona making their second Champions League decider in three campaigns.

“I don’t dream of scoring legendary goals, but I dream of being at Wembley,” Iniesta said.

“I don’t care about scoring goals or not being able to play, as long as we get to the final. Now our only thoughts are these. The team is not thinking of anything else.”

Iniesta and his team-mates travel to the Bernabeu for the first leg of the semi-final against Real, who upset their El Clasico arch-rivals in the Copa del Rey final last Wednesday.

While Barca will be well versed in the strengths and weaknesses of Jose Mourinho’s side, Iniesta believes the Catalans would be better to focus on their own game rather than that of their opponents.

“We’ll win because we do not do anything else,” Iniesta said of their first leg in Madrid on Wednesday.

“We should not look at Madrid but only ourselves.”

“We have to counter their strengths. There are many circumstances and it will depend on how the game goes. We must remember that there are 180 minutes.”

“We will play with a positive mindset and with the knowledge that we are not far from the final.”
