The Barcelona official is already counting his chickens.....
That leaves the Blaugrana with the advantage of playing the crucial second leg at home and this has given the club's vice-president Rafael Yuste cause to be optimistic, as he is already dreaming of playing in the final of the competition at the Santiago Bernabeu in May.
"We are aware that every game from now on will be very difficult, but with respect to our rivals, I think that all the fans can dream of reaching the final at the Bernabeu because the most important is that in both the rounds (the quarterfinals and the semifinals) the return leg will be played at the Camp Nou.
"We have already seen in the last-16 that with our fans cheering us on, we can be unstoppable," he added.
However, Yuste was quick to caution fans not to be over-confident
"It is necessary to leave behind any complacency because as we saw in the previous round, there have already been a lot of unexpected surprises and as such, we have to play with maximum focus.
"The key is to continue working as Pep's team has done so far: with humility."
