Andres Iniesta has urged Barcelona to complete a triumphant year by winning an unprecedented third FIFA Club World Cup.

The Spanish giants have lifted the Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey already this year and are hungry for more silverware.

They won the Club World Cup in 2009 and 2011 and launch their bid for a third title against Guangzhou Evergrande in the semi-finals.

"We're demanding the very best of ourselves. We want to win another title and round off a spectacular year," Iniesta told

"It's a great opportunity. We came to Japan to win another title and we're absolutely determined to do so. We're very excited.

"We know that we're the favourites and that's making us take the tournament even more seriously.

"I think we have a fantastic squad. We all know the kind of football we want to play and we're all pulling in the same direction.

"We've had a fantastic year in which we've won the lot, deservedly so. And we want to do it again."
