LIGA ESPANOLA 02/21/2015

The other two spanish teams involved in the Champions League will play on Saturday their league matches. Barcellona will face Malaga at Camp Nou, while Atletico Madrid recevies Almeria at Vicente Calderon.


Barcelona has won all the last 11 matches played and it is in a great shape. Barcelona has all its players available and it is possible Luis Enrique will make some changes to the regular line up because of the imminent Champions League match.

Malaga has lost the last 2 matches played against Levante in Valencia and with Espanyol at home.

1 + OVER 2.5 (1.36,  Betfair)
OVER 1,5 FIRST HALF (1.83, Betfair)

BARCELLONA: Bravo; Adriano, Mascherano, Mathieu, Alba; Xavi, Busquets, Rafinha; Messi, Neymar, Pedro.
MALAGA: Kameni; Weligton, Sánchez, Boka, Rosales; Recio, Juanmi, Castillejo, Samuel, Darder; Guerra.




Usually Simeone tends to use the same players in the starting line up, but this time he could make some turnover and especially if the score will be positive after the first half  Atletico will try to slow the rhythm in order to save evenrgies.

Atletico is 7 points below Barcelona and Sevilla and Valencia are right just behind it...there's high pressure for Atletico, a win is as much important as to keep energies for the Champions League match. In our opinion Simeone will ask his players to secure the score in the first half, in order to manage the match during the second half with long ball possession.
