Barcelona – Malaga
The rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona in the Spanish La Liga is getting into fierce levels once again. Both teams are winning all of their games lately and they once again look like the two major contenders for the gold medals. Especially with Atletico Madrid losing two times in the last three rounds. Now Barcelona are hosting Malaga at the Camp Nou and they know that they cannot afford any mistakes.
Four consecutive wins in the Spanish La Liga. After some short period of hesitation, Barcelona are looking back to their best levels once again. In the last round they showed some great spirit and beat Sevilla away from home, which is always a very difficult to achieve. Now Barca are looking once again as a formidable team.
Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are the players in form for Barcelona right now. They are both leading the La Liga goalscorers chart right now with 8 goals – more than all other players in the league at the moment. And if Neymar manages to find his best form soon enough, then Barcelona’s deadly trio MSN will make this team look almost unbeatable once again.
Malaga on the other hand looks like a team who can win or lose at any moment. In their last five games they won three times, lost once and made one draw – seriously mixed-up results. Juande Ramos is doing a good work at the La Rosaleda and Malaga are looking like a solid team, but let’s see how they will deal with a team with Barcelona’s qualities.
Taking into account the fierce rivalry with Real Madrid, Barcelona can’t afford to lose any points right now. Especially against a team like Malaga at the Camp Nou. We should expect to see Luis Enrique’s team being highly motivated to win, because they all know that every single point could be crucial in the end of the season.
