Ivan Rakitic can’t wait for Saturday’s La Liga clash with Celta Vigo if his social media activity is anything to go by.

The Croatia midfielder posted a message ahead of Saturday’s game which revealed just how much he’s looking forward to the game at Balaidos.

Rakitic heads into the game in good shape after coming off the bench to score the winner in Barcelona’s midweek win over Athletic at the Camp Nou.

The goal was his first of the season but was his 50th in La Liga. He’s scored 25 goals for Sevilla and 25 for Barcelona.

Rakitic looks set to be handed a start on Saturday too. Sergio Busquets is suspended and Frenkie de Jong injured which means Quique Setien is short of options in midfield.
