The Blaugrana midfielder stressed that La Roja are focused on reaching the final at the expense of their Iberian neighbours, and added Spain will try and play their own game.

"Portugal have a great team and a lot of potential. They don't play the kind of football you would expect from them. They have some great players in midfield, and their attack is very unpredictable."
