With a four-point cushion at the top of La Liga and five over their nearest rivals in the betting, Barcelona have definitely seized the early advantage over a Real Madrid side that led the title betting before a ball was kicked this season.
Now Ernesto Valdverde's side face a Malaga team who have been struggling badly and currently sit at the foot of the table, with just a single point to their name.
This match pitches the best attack (24 scored) against the worst defence (18 conceded) so the clash at the Camp Nou should be an enthralling spectacle for punters.
Those who want to watch and bet on the action can do so via dabblebet, who now offer live coverage of every La Liga and Ligue 1 game this season, including matches shown at 3:15pm on Saturdays which aren't available on television due to the current broadcasting restrictions.
There's no need to place a bet on the match in order to watch though, just ensure your dabblebet account is funded or active (bet placed within the last 24 hours) and you'll be able to see the action unfolding on desktop, mobile or tablet.
That's right, if you place a bet on at 12noon on Saturday you'll be able to see a huge range of matches live until noon on Sunday, and beyond if your account still has money in it.
The price on a Barcelona win is currently just 1/16 (1.06) which is unlikely to appeal to many as a single selection, but there's also a huge enhanced Watch and Bet treble that includes Lionel Messi & Co.
Backing Barca, Real Madrid and PSG all to win this weekend pays just 4/6 (1.67) but dabblebet are offering all customers to take 10/11 (1.91) instead. That's a significant boost in price for three red-hot favourites and all three matches are available via the platform too. All returns will be paid in cash, not free bets.
So, if you like the look of the three short prices with a much bigger payout than you would normally expect, why not check out dabblebet for all this plus more great offers for fans of the beautiful game including the Football Weekender, which sees anyone who places 2 football singles at 4/5 (1.80) or bigger between Friday and Sunday credited with a £5 free bet on Monday. T&Cs are available here.
