Andres Iniesta says Barcelona players regard the Liga trophy as important as the Champions League.

While midfielder Iniesta admits winning a third Champions League trophy in eight years would be special, he insists the league is still their main priority.

"The league is the most important title for me, as it reflects consistency and the work you put in day after day," the Spaniard said.

"The Champions League is very prestigious, but it's a competition which is very tough, special and unique. People do value the league.

"We would all love to be in this position at this point of the season every year.

We've been knocked out of the Copa del Rey, but we're on course to win the league and the Champions League semi-final is just one step from the final in London."
