Coutinho spoke to Barca TV before the game. "I'm a little bit anxious," he said. "To arrive here and play a final three months later is a very happy moment, and an important one. Anxiety arrives, there's a couple of days to go before the game and you start to think about it. 

"It will be a difficult final, we have to be prepared to acheive our objectives. I arrived here with a lot of enthusiasm to play in finals, to win titles and this is the first opportunity. On what depends on me, I'll do everything possible so that we can have a great game."

On Sevilla, he added: "We know the quality they have, we played them a few weeks ago and know how they play but we have to think about ourselves, how to play, how to behave on the pitch and to have a good game."
