Barcelona's miserable week showed no signs of abating as the club confirmed that Ivan Rakitic had fractured his hand during their 0-3 loss to Roma that led to their exit from the UEFA Champions League and the Croatian will be undergoing surgery on Wednesday itself.

Roma are also through to the Champions League semi finals following a sensational comeback against Barcelona.

Barca were 4-0 down from the first leg of the Champions League last 16 tie.

"They were very clear about how to attack us and we didn't find the solution". "We've seen it a little bit regularly - if you're a heartfelt Barca fan or if you're a Barca planner or if you're their president or indeed their captain, Andres Iniesta - there's an exact similarity to Turin past year".

"I am responsible absolutely, I am the visible head of the team and it was down to me. We had high hopes this season and it has escaped us again", added the 33-year-old, who also acknowledged that the game could have been his last in the competition for Barca amid uncertainty about his future beyond this season. Barcelona has an 11-point lead over Atletico Madrid with seven matches left, and it will face Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final on April 21 trying to win its fourth straight Copa title. We have to try and win them because we have not won anything yet.

"When you do things badly, you commit lots of mistakes and we didn't adapt to the game".

Meanwhile, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu apologised to the club's supporters. "We played perfectly and performed right from the start to the last minute".
