Our match prediction:
Last season Malaga managed to beat Barcelona in Camp Nou with 0-1. Both Barcelona and Malaga started this season reasonable; Barcelona beat the tough Athletic away with 0-1 and Malaga managed to draw against Sevilla at home. Compared to the pre season Barcelona will have more rest in between games which allows the players and staff to recover and prepare for the game against Malaga. Messi missed his penalty against Athletic which will motivate him and the other players of Barcelona to give away a show to the supporters at home in the Camp Nou and keep the 2 points difference with rival Real Madrid.
