Barcelona are one step from winning everything - Iniesta

Andres Iniesta says Barcelona are “one step” away from winning everything as they close in on a domestic and continental treble.

Barca eased into the Champions Leage final on Tuesday despite a 3-2 defeat at Bayern Munich, beating Pep Guardiola’s men 5-3 on aggregate, and will meet the winner of the second semi-final between Real Madrid and Juventus in Berlin on June 6.

Luis Enrique’s men will be crowned La Liga champions on if they win their next game against Atletico Madrid, although a possible strike threatens to delay their confirmation, while they will also contest the final of the Copa del Rey against Athletic Bilbao at Camp Nou on May 30.

With his team so close to such remarkable success, Iniesta is gearing up for a vital few weeks.

He told TV3: “We are where we want to be every year, we are one step from everything and we’ll try to take that step forward.

“We are not content, though, the titles would be incredible for everyone. Every year is different, this year is good in every sense. We have overcome some very important rivals and we are going to give everything.”

Mehdi Benatia’s early header gave Bayern hope of overcoming a 3-0 first-leg deficit, but two Neymar goals before half-time settled Barca nerves.

Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller gave Pep Guardiola a win on the night against his former club but Barca were comfortable winners in the end.

Iniesta added: “We knew they were going to push from the start but the two goals in the first half gave us peace. We are in another final and we must celebrate it.”
