In his pre-match press conference, Pep Guardiola admitted that the Rubin game was not quite as important as the previous group games, given that “the job is already done” and Barça are guaranteed top spot.

Quizzed about his squad selection, with six first teamers absent Guardiola insisted however, that: “we have to keep up our good form and I want everyone to participate. We are group winners again and the job is done, but out of respect, we will trying to play our dynamic game and making the maximum number of chances”, the boss explained.

They’ll share it with the rest of the squad because they’ve all contributed”. Guardiola also had words of praise for Iniesta and Xavi’s Spanish managers Del Bosque and Aragones: “who also played their part in this”. As to his own nomination as Manager of the Year, Guardiola commented: “the theory that Barça is good for us all continues to be true”.
