La Liga Preview: Barcelona - Malaga

The Blaugrana can hit 100 points, matching Real Madrid's points record from last season, if they beat the Andalusian side, which is playing its last game under Manuel Pellegrini.


Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova has no fresh fitness concerns heading into Saturday's Liga finale against Malaga.

Captain Carles Puyol remains absent with a knee problem, while Lionel Messi is unlikely to be risked as he continues his recovery from a hamstring strain. Eric Abidal is set to make a farewell appearance after Barca announced it will not be renewing the Frenchman's contract into next season.

Malaga defender Martin Demichelis pulled his hamstring in training and is a doubt for the trip to Camp Nou.
Midfielder Manuel Iturra and goalkeeper Carlos Kameni are both likely to miss out with knee injuries.
