Barcelona vs Malaga Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
A quite interesting match awaits us this Saturday at Camp Nou where Barcelona will host Malaga. It is the match between the best and the worst team in the league. This match is bound to provide lots of goals and the lack of excitement as anything else than a win for Barcelona would be a miracle.
Barcelona are placed first on the table. They are by far the best teams in the league. They have not lost a single game, and just last week they got their first draw of the season in the domestic league. They played against a very good opponent, Atletico Madrid, a team which just like Barcelona and Valencia is still unbeaten in the league. Niguez opened the goal scoring chart in the 21st minute of the game. Suarez managed to equalize in the 82nd and thus set the final score. Few minutes before the final whistle, Messi managed to hit the crossbow from the free kick. The Catalan side have scored an amazing twenty-four goals so far, most in the league, while only conceding three. Things seem to be working excellent on both sides of the filed. Their star player Leo Messi has taken the responsibility on him and with it scored the most goals. He leads the goal-scoring chart with eleven goals so far.
Malaga are by far the worst team in the league. They have just one point ffrom a drawn against Athletic Bilbao. They have scored just four goals while conceding eighteen. They lack on both ends of the field. They are just as poor when defending as when they attack. Last week they suffered a 0-2 loss against Leganes. Gabriel and Szymanowski have Leganes the lead.
When it comes to duels between these two teams, Barcelona are the better one, although they have had some trouble in the recent history. The last match was won by Malaga with the score 2-0 and the one before that was a goalless draw.
