Philippe Coutinho says the team must “play like Barcelona” when they take on Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final against Sevilla on Saturday.

Barcelona’s style of play under Ernesto Valverde has come in for criticism and the team have also been far from their best since the international break.

Saturday provides Barca with the chance to complete the first half of a domestic double and Coutinho is looking forward to it.

“I came here to play these types of matches and win titles. Being able to play a final is a very important and very happy moment,” he said.

“The days leading up to it are experienced with an eagerness to play, they are great moments and I am anxious for it to arrive. It’s my first chance to play a final with Barça and I’ll do everything that depends on me so we can play a great game.”

”In a final you never know what can happen, it’s all different. It will be a great game and we have to play like Barça and look at our goals, always trying to win.”
