Our football match prediction:
Despite rolling over Sevilla in Wednesday’s football game, Barcelona remained in second position in the La Liga standings. The title holders are two points behind league leaders Real Madrid in the table and it has to be noted that los Blancos have one game in hand. Luis Enrique’s troops have been in a thrilling form of late, but they need to keep on winning if they are to defend their trophy. Leo Messi scored a brace against Sevilla and “the Magician” is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line. Los Boquerones did well to beat Sporting Gijon at “El Molinon” in midweek and thanks to the triumph the Andalusian outfit put an end to their six-game winless run in the Spanish top flight. However, Malaga face an uphill task in Saturday’s clash against Barca and we predict that the star-studded visitors will pick up all three points from the match.
Highlighted Player (Carlos Kameni):
Carlos Kameni is considered one of the best African goalkeepers of all times. The Cameroonian international played for Kadji Sports during his youth career and in 2000 he signed a contract with Le Havre. Four years later Carlos Kameni joined Espanyol and he made no less than 222 appearances for the Catalan outfit. On 13 January, 2012 the Cameroonian shoot-stopper moved to fellow La Liga side Malaga and he has been playing for los Boquerones ever since. Carlos Kameni was born in Douala, Cameroon on 18 February, 1984 and 18 years later he represented his homeland at the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. He made Cameroon 2010 World Cup squad as well, but he did not see any game action at the showpiece tournament as French tactician Paul Le Guen preferred Souleymanou Hamidou over him. You should have in mind that Kameni’s older brother Mathurin was a goalkeeper as well. Carlos was named the Best African Goalkeeper for the 2006/2007 season.
Highlighted Team (Barcelona):
Barcelona are a Spanish football club based in Barcelona, Catalonia. Barca were founded in 1899 and they are regarded as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Catalan giants won their 24th La Liga title in 2016, with Luis Suarez winning “El Pichichi” award. Barcelona have won five European Cup trophies and a number of top-class players were part of the team in the past. The likes of Hristo Stoichkov, Romario, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona and Pep Guardiola are some of many players that played for Barca in the past, but, no doubt, Leo Messi has established himself as the club’s trademark. Barcelona welcome their rivals at Camp Nou, the stadium that was built in 1957. Barcelona’s local rivals are Espanyol, but the rivalry between Barca and Real Madrid is much bigger. The two La Liga giants face each other in “El Clasico”, which is considered one of the most exciting derbies in the world football. Barca are famous for their football youth school La Masia as well.
