Sandro only left Barca last summer for Malaga but has performed well with 14 Liga goals already and he says he wants another one on Sunday as he bids to help his former side pip their fierce rivals to the title.

"Hopefully I can score and hand the title to Barcelona," he told Spanish television programme La Liga World.

"Hopefully it's a dream day. I owe them [Barca] everything."

Sandro also revealed that he could have joined Real Madrid, before moving to Barcelona, but that the Blaugrana always had a special place in his heart.

"It was really emotional, above all for my parents, when Barcelona came for me after seven years with Las Palmas," he added

"I had the chance to go to Madrid, but I like Barca more because I was always a Barca fan. So was my dad. At the time, the academy [at Barcelona] counted for a lot."

Barca will need all the help they can get on Sunday, let’s hope Sandro is as good as his word!
