Rakitic admits trophies are on the players' minds as they work towards resuming the campaign.
He told Marca: "We want to improve a lot of things because we know that we need to.
"There's a fantastic atmosphere in the dressing room and we have clear objectives. Hopefully we'll end August with both trophies [LaLiga Santander and the Champions League], we're working for that and I think it's possible. We want it.
"We'll have to be prepared and see how the competition is formatted, but we have an opportunity that we want to take advantage of."
