Cadena SER journalist Manu Carreño claim that "you can't treat a player worse" when referring to Rakitic's situation at Barça. Raquel shared that article, alongside a personal comment of her own. "And even then, your Ivan Rakitic doesn't give up. He's an example of consistency, hard work and professionalism. That's why I love you. You're great and no one can change you."

Ernesto Valverde opted for Arturo Vidal instead of Rakitic and the Chilean turned the match around for Barça.
