Messi stars as Barca thrash Celta to reach Copa del Rey Q/finals

"We can't think that the result is in our favour because then there is the risk that we will make a mistake", he continued.

Ernesto Valverde's side are next in action on Thursday at home to Celta in the second leg of their last-16 Copa del Rey tie - the first leg having ended 1-1 - but Umtiti is not expected to be available.

Ivan Rakitic headed the fifth goal late in the game to round off the five-star performance of Ernesto Varvelde's side. The Brazilian has finally arrived at Camp Nou following several unsuccessful attempts and this deal should serve as a major lift ahead of the business end of the season. It was another encouraging sign for Barcelona, with the Frenchman continuing his recovery from a recent injury layoff. Jordi Alba and Thomas Vermaelen are available after shaking off minor knocks.
