FC Barcelona knocked out Bayern Munich on Tuesday by an aggregate score of 5–3. / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

[[DES_1]] The FC Barcelona players were very proud after securing their ticket to the Champions League Final in Berlin on 6 June, the Club’s fourth final in 10 years. Andres Iniesta said that the team is optimistic for what are essentially three matches that can give them the three titles but that the players are aware that there is unfinished business.

"We are where we should be each year. We’re close to winning everything, but we have one last step in all three competitions,” Iniesta said.

He continued: “Our goal was to be the final and once there it doesn’t matter who our rival is. But we mustn’t stop and we have to try and win everything. Being in the final is huge and it would be incredible to get the titles for the team and for the fans," Iniesta admitted.

As for the game, the Barça midfielder said they expected Bayern to come out with intensity: "We knew they would come out strong at the beginning, but our two goals gave us a cushion."

"In the second half, they came out hungry again. The important thing is that we’re in another final. It’s great. We’ll try to finish on top."

Here are some highlights from the players’ post-game reactions:

Neymar Jr.

"I want to congratulate the whole team for the game we played. I’m very happy with the goals and to be in the Final. It's great."

"Now we have only one step left. The dressing room hosted a small party, but we still have one more step."

"It's very important to be in the Final. It doesn’t matter who we play."

Gerard Piqué

"A final against [Real] Madrid would be very exciting and historic."

"We’ve marked an era. I'm very happy to be part of this team. We’ll remember for a long time, now is the time to enjoy it."

Jordi Alba

"The big teams win more than they lose. We’re having a great season, we’re in two finals and now we’ll try to win the league."

"I want Barça to be in all competitions. We are and on Wednesday we'll see who we’ll face in the final."
