Malaga vs Barcelona: LaLiga leaders go 11 points clear

Barca can take it easy with Chelsea on the horizon

Malaga may be bottom of the league but they've been a bogey team for Barca in recent seasons.

Barcelona were held to an unexpected 1-1 draw at struggling Las Palmas with Super Eagles midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo in action on March 1.

Valencia tightened their grip on fourth place and took a giant leap towards returning to the Champions League by winning 2-0 at Sevilla, opening up an 11-point gap on the Andalusians in fifth place. They did well although the level of the opposition makes it difficult to read too much into this performance.

If Dembele returns to the starting XI then Arthur - along with Coutinho - can play two possible positions. Yet both should be fine for the Chelsea game, with Barca leaving it late before taking a decision on Andres Iniesta's fitness.

- Luis Suarez has scored against all the 25 teams he has faced in LaLiga (106 goals in total). FC Barcelona battles Chelsea on Wednesday in the second leg of its Champions League round of 16 matchup. What happened in Las Palmas, when we couldn't win, has to serve as a warning for us.

The home side head into the encounter on the back of a 12-game winless run, which includes 10 losses. "The statistics speak for themselves".

The match kicks off at 7.45pm. The cross was set up perfectly for El-Nesyri, bu from about three yards out he somehow heads wide of the post.

Barcelona won their La Liga match against Malaga 2-0, thanks to goals from Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho. From that point on, the Liga pace-setters never looked back, with Coutinho adding a second before the half-hour mark, flicking home a clever finish.

"Dembele's a player that needs time, he's young", Valverde added. The best performing left-back in La Liga. Their love story is one of a kind in the footballing world, where players change partners faster than they travel cities for the game. We're going for a 3-0 victory.

The forward first capitalized on a mistake by Sergio Escudero, whose flubbed attempt to intercept a long pass left Moreno all alone to beat goalkeeper Sergio Rico.
