Malaga finally won the game under the new coach after beating Sporting Gijon 0-1 on Wednesday. However, they are still not completely safe from the relegation zone as they are in the 15th place with 30 points collected so far. Their home form is horrible, and they will probably add another loss to their performances at La Rosaleda as they are facing the Catalonians. In the last six home matches, Malaga were beaten five times while managing to win only once. In their last three La Liga matches, there were under 2.5 goals scored, but they allowed at least two in previous three outings at La Rosaleda.
Barcelona are facing the extremely difficult schedule in April as they will meet Serie A champions Juventus next week. They must beat Malaga on Saturday in order to peacefully prepare the clash against Massimiliano Allegri’s side. In the previous round, they comfortably beat Jorge Sampoali’s Sevilla with 3-0 at Camp Nou. The Catalonians were brilliant on visits this season, as they earned 33 points from 15 matches – 10 victories and 3 draws with only two defeats and the goal difference of insane 42 goals scored and only 15 conceded. Barca scored at least three in 5 out of last 6 La Liga matches. Also, there were over 2.5 goals scored in their last 10 matches.
This season’s reverse was a huge surprise as Malaga snatched a point in the goalless stalemate at Camp Nou. The Catalonians will certainly seek revenge for the two points they dropped, but head-to-head meetings indicate that beating Malaga will not be easy as they won only two out of last five matches against them.
