thumbnail Hello,

Barcelona are living up to the expectations because of their positive mentality and that could see them become the champions of Europe, according to one former player...

Demetrio Albertini believes that Barcelona are living up to all the hype that has surrounded them this season and it is their attitude that could see them win the Champions League.

The Blaugrana are on target to win the treble and face Chelsea in the semi-finals of the Champions League on Tuesday before taking on Real Madrid at the weekend.

While expectations have soared as Pep Guardiola's team have produced some incredible performances this term, Albertini thinks that the mentality within the squad will be the key.

"Barca have the attitude to win the Champions League," Sport quote him as saying.

"The team are playing so well. It is all very well everyone talking about how good they are, but they have had to prove that they are and they have done that.

"Many of my friends think that this is a special team we are seeing and I would really like to see them in the final in Rome."
