thumbnail Hello,

The Brazilian is focused on putting in a big performance to pip Atletico Madrid to the Primera Division crown at Camp Nou at Saturday

Barcelona star Adriano has promised to dedicate the Liga title to Tito Vilanova if his side can overcome Atletico Madrid on Saturday.

The Catalans will retain their Primera Division crown if they beat Diego Simeone's side, who currently lead the table by three points.

Vilanova, who coached Barca to Liga glory last year, passed away in April after losing his battle with cancer and Adriano is eager to pay tribute to his former coach.

"We're going to give our all on the field to dedicate the title to Tito and his family," he is quoted as saying by Sport.

"We 100 per cent want to be champions. We want to have a great game and become champions. That's the only thing we're thinking about.

"We know how strong they are. They've had a great season and deserve to win the league, but we're only thinking about playing our game and enjoying our football.

"We're going to leave everything behind. It's been a long time since La Liga was decided on the final day and we're approaching it like a final."

Atletico and Barca kick off at Camp Nou at 18:00CET on Saturday.
