Barcelona vs Malaga Preview:

On January 16th Barcelona welcomes Malaga at the Camp Nou in Barcelona. These pair faces-off for second time in four days. Malaga and Barcelona met on Sunday in La Liga-match, where the Catalans won 3-1, so Manuel Pellegrini’s tem will hope for revenge on Wednesday in Copa del Rey.

 

Barcelona are at the top of the Spanish Primera with fifty five points after nineteen games. They have eighteen victories, one draw and no losses so far this season. Their present form has seen five wins from last five games. Also the Catalans are unbeaten for fifteen games in all competitions. Last five games at the Camp Nou have seen four wins and one draw with Benfica. Malaga lost to Barcelona on Sunday in La Liga with the score 1-3. Lionel Messi, Cesc Fabregas, Thiago scored for Barca and Buonanotte for Malaga. The Blaugranas have scored fifteen goals in their first four games in 2013.

They are the current holders of the Copa del Rey, having beaten Athletic Bilbao 4-1 last season. Tito Vilanova’s team passed Alaves and Cordoba to progress into this stage.

 

Malaga goes on the fifth position in the La Liga standings with thirty one points after nineteen games, having won nine, drawn four and lost six so far this season. Their present form has seen two wins, one draw and two losses from last five fixtures. In the last five games far away from home the Andalusians have seen one win, two draws and two losses.

Malaga began the season in financial and ownership confusion, but have qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League and the Copa del Rey quarter-finals. Malaga was beaten by Barcelona with the score 3-1.               Malaga are three points behind fourth place in the La Liga, and they could focus for this year to make the Champions League place again. So they may give a rest to a few key players tonight.

 

Barcelona have players who missed out the weekend game such like Sanchez, Puyol, Song and Tello. So they could easily start from the first minutes. The two teams played at La Rosaleda in La Liga on Sunday, where the Catalan grand won 3-1. The first-leg of the quarter-final of the Copa del Rey will give them the opportunity to make a great advantage.

The Andalusians showed that they could trouble Tito Vilanova’s team even at Camp Nou and they probably will look for revenge. Both teams have fully featured squads and could use the same line-ups. But we should expect a few changes in both squads.

 

Barcelona line-up: Valdes, Alves, Pique, Puyol, Alba, Xavi, Busquets, Fabregas, Pedro, Messi, Iniesta.
