Barcelona´s persistency
Barça dominated the game from start to finish. With Neymar in the starting lineup and Luis Suarez constantly trying, Barcelona created danger around Kameni´s goal, but the good performance of the Cameroon goalkeeper and the crossbar, which repelled a header from Mascherano, prevented that the match had goals before the break.

Málaga defensive solidity
The Andalusian team, very well set on the pitch, could defend during the first half of Barcelona´s offensive gale, who could not find many gaps in Malaga´s defensive line

Visitors Counterattacks
Javi Gracia's men not only were able to keep a clean sheet for long time, but they also tried to surprise Barcelona through quick counterattacks leaded by the speed of Amrabat.

Great performance by Kameni
Cameroon goalkeeper had several successful saves preventing Barcelona to step forward in the lead for much of the match.

First Barca´s goal
Local insistence paid off on 73 minutes, when the Belgian Vermaelen took a deflection within the box and after a left footed volley scored the 1-0. Thereafter, the game changed and the Catalan team found much more comfortable looking for a second goal that was close to reaching.
