Sevilla host Barca in the first-leg of the Copa del Rey semifinal tonight.
Rakitic told AS: "No (I won't celebrate). I had a lot of good times there. My daughter was born in Barcelona, I have many friends in the city and the fans have always shown me affection. They even gave me a prize for my behaviour.
"It's the best time of the season for us.
"In the last few games and weeks we are growing. For me it will be a special match."
