Barca are facing Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final in Madrid on Friday in what will be coach Pep Guardiola's final match in charge.
"I’m sure they are not more motivated than we are. Our hunger for victory and our excitement hasn’t run out," said Cesc.
"We’re going to play against a spectacular team that we admire. They have hope, they’re eager and they always go forward. They remind me of some English teams, with very direct football but they also utilise their passing game.”
