Ernesto Valverde wants Barcelona to wrap up the La Liga title against relegation strugglers Levante today.

With four games left, Barcelona have a nine-point lead over Atletico Madrid and will retain the title with a Nou Camp win.

Barca boss Valverde said: "We want to be champions. It's the game we've been waiting for all season. It's special to be able to celebrate the title with the fans."

Levante manager Paco Lopez insists his side have faith - despite never winning at the Nou Camp.

He said: "We are a team that believes, is united and convinced of the difficulty of what is to come.

"It will be difficult but is our turn to fight until the end."

"We are going to think only of Barca, assessing all the circumstances.

"It is very difficult to win at the Camp Nou. We are excited to achieve something positive."
