Malaga, meanwhile, have lost their last six matches and are winless in three months.

Feeble Malaga attack

Since the turn of the year Malaga, have played ten league matches and only scored three goals.

That damning statistic explains why the Andalusians find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table, eight points from safety.

Barca's defence, meanwhile, has been rock solid this term with just 13 goals conceded in 27 games and against a team as goal shy as Los Boquerones, the Catalans should be able to record a win with few problems. 

Tips and predictions

The price of 10/11 (1.91) for Barcelona to win to nil is extremely tempting, given the statistics of the respective sides.

Barca have the best defensive record away from home in the division and against a team devoid of goals, this selection should pay out for a ninth time on the road this season for the leaders.
