Barcelona VS Málaga

Preview

Barcelona and Malaga face off at Camp Nou on this 24th round match of the Spanish major league.

The home team comes into this match with an 11 win streak on the bag, having scored 13 times on their last 3 games. They are at the moment the 2nd placed team, 1 point behind the leaders, Real Madrid.

The visiting team on the other hand has only one win on their last 9 matches having conceded 6 goals on their last 2. Malaga is now the 7th placed team with 35 points.

As it was expected, the head-to-head stats clearly favour the home team. We have to go back all the way to 2003 to find the last Malaga win against Barcelona.

Analysis of Barcelona

On Barcelona’s side the quality of their components is undeniable. It is not by chance that Messi and entourage are considered one of the world’s best teams. We must consider as well the morale boost that must have come with the Argentinian star’s hat trick on the last round.

The midfield will probably be composed of more experienced players like Busquets, Rakitic and Xavi. The Spaniard being the most influential player on the team’s offensive process.

On the frontline we can expect another great game full of technical prowess from the three stars Pedro, Messi and Neymar.


Confirmed Lineup: C. Bravo, Piqué, Dani Alves, J. Mathieu, Jordi Alba, Rafinha, Busquets, Iniesta, L. Suárez, L. Messi, Neymar.
Coach: Luis Enrique.

Analysis of Málaga

Malaga on the other hand has several important absences for this match. Sergio Sanchez, Chen and Rafa de Vicente will not be playing but the squad seems to have enough depth to cover these losses efficiently.

Javi Garcia’s team, usually comes into play on a 4-3-3 formation where the Moroccan Amrabat is the forward man with Samu and Castillejo supporting the big man, through the wings mostly.

We predict that Malaga will be mostly using their left wing to attack using Boka’s quality on the attack phase to bring some danger to Barca’s goal. 


Confirmed Lineup: C. Kameni, M. Angeleri, R. Rosales, Weligton, Miguel Torres, Samu, Samu Castillejo, Recio, Darder, Juanmi, Ricardo Horta.
Coach: Javi Gracia.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is the appearance of goals. Looking at Barca’s offensive capability and recent scores, we expect that the visiting team's goal will be breached several times.
