Andoni Zubizarreta says Barcelona are determined to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League by beating Spartak Moscow on Tuesday.

Barcelona were surprisingly beaten 2-1 by Celtic on matchday four, but they remain well-placed to book a spot in the last 16 of the competition.

Sporting director Zubizarreta has insisted Barca want to seal qualification to the next stage with a win over Spartak.

“Our goal is to qualify for the next round as soon as possible. We must win on Tuesday for that to happen,” Zubizarreta told the club’s website.

“We weren’t able to clinch qualification in Glasgow, but we are hopeful that we can do it in Moscow. We’re aware of how difficult the match will be because Spartak are running out of options to get to the next round.”

The club’s director of football then went on to discuss Lionel Messi’s form and hailed the Argentine’s contribution to the team.

“He doesn’t play to break individual records,” Zubizarreta said.

“What he wants is to win with the team and contribute to the group with his work.”

Messi has netted 22 goals in 18 official appearances for Barcelona this season.
