Barcelona are preparing for life without their veteran midfielder Xavi, and they are marking his final game with the club in La Liga with a special message on their shirts.

Beside the club crest, the words "6racies Xavi" will appear; gracies being the Catalan for "thank you," with the 6 instead of the letter G in reference to the shirt number he has worn for so many years at the Camp Nou.

Xavi could yet complete a treble in his final act for the club—Barcelona have already won the league, but after the weekend's game against Deportivo they have the Copa del Rey and Champions League finals to contest.
