Barcelona (-2) to beat Malaga @ 13/20
Dislodged from the top of the La Liga pile for the first time in a year-and-a-half, the Catalonian kings will be baying for blood and Malaga are the unfortunate figures standing in the way of the speeding juggernaut.
The previous three instances the league fixture generator has consigned them to a Camp Nou venture they’ve returned having lost 4-1 and have warmed up for this season’s visit by failing to score in three successive games.
