Barcelona's Xavi expects the current crop of Catalan stars to win more silverware over the coming seasons.

The instrumental midfielder is confident that the current Barca side can continue to win trophies and believes they are in a great position to eliminate Paris Saint-Germain in their quarter-final second leg game on Wednesday.

Barcelona have been one of, if not the biggest force in European football in recent years, but some argued that the side’s dominance was fading following a number of disappointing performances in February.

However after regaining their magical form which sees them 13 points clear at the top of the Primera Division table and with one foot in the Champions League semi-final Spanish international Xavi insists that his side are still hungry for success and that he has little doubt that they will continue to win titles.

"I think we’ve had four or five excellent years in which Barcelona have been very, very good. But I think there are still some great games left in this generation and we’ll enjoy even further success," Xavi told the official Uefa website.

"We’re doing well in the league and in a good position in the Champions League. We’re are really hoping that things can work out, and even more for Tito Vilanova, because he deserves everything we’ve fought for."

The midfield maestro then went on to talk about Barca’s upcoming clash against PSG at the Camp Nou and said that although his side are the favourites, they will not be underestimating the French team.

"The 2-2 was a good result, we’re the favourites, we’re at home and there are 90 minutes left to play. But looking back at the last game, the way they scored with the last move of the game leaves a bad taste in your mouth," he added.

"We’re optimistic, though, because we know we’re playing at home, but PSG have a great team, they’re quick up front and play well on the counterattack. They’re no small fries - they’re a big team."
