Barcelona defeated Málaga and climbed to the top of the standings
Spain, January 26, 2014
Tata Martino’s team won against Malaga 3-0 with goals scored by Pique, Pedro and Alexis Sanchez. The victory puts them back on top of the league.
The inequality came near the end of the first stage through the central defender Gerard Pique. It took a lot to break the zero on the fence defended by Wilfredo Caballero, but when they achieved it, things became easier.
The team led by Martino was clearly superior, reason why the development of the game did not change in the second half, despite Barcelona scored two more goals to give peace of mind to their coach.
An assist from Messi to Pedro, who did not waste his chance and a goal after a fine team move by Alexis Sanchez, closed the night in a victory for Barcelona.
The victory allows them to clear the ghosts in the week about alleged irregularities in the purchase of Neymar. Rosell’s resignation and the change of president threatened to shake the calm atmosphere of Barsa. They showed that football remains the same.
