Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola believes his side and opponents Manchester United have a responsibility to live up to expectations when they clash in the UEFA Champions League final.
Arguably the two biggest names in Europe will go head-to-head at Wembley on Saturday evening in what Guardiola knows has been billed as the 'final of the decade'.
And the Barca boss, speaking ahead of the much-anticipated showdown, says he is expecting a high-class encounter.
"We have to show both teams playing football," he said.
"We have the audience of the world and we have to show we deserve this credit of 'the final of the decade'.
"When you play in a final and both teams want to win and both want to play, for the rest of the world it will be a good final.
"They have their strength, we have our skill, and we have to see who controls the situation best."
Barca are favourites to lift the trophy, but Guardiola has once again rubbished suggestions they are already the greatest club side of all time.
However, the coach has urged his side to complete a victory over United that will never be forgotten.
"If some guys remember this team, the people who are playing right now, for us that will be a huge success," he said.
"If they talk in good terms, saying, 'One time, I saw this team and this team played good', we are glad.
"To think we're the best team ever, it's impossible, it's not true."
He added: "You need time to go by for people to judge you.
"It's like films. It's only with the passage of time that you know what is a great film."
