Many have doubted that Barca can dominate Malaga as much as they did. With Real Madrid leading the Primera table with a 5 point lead, Barcelona simply had to secure a win. However, Andalusians weren’t going to let them win so easily. The match started slowly, but as Barcelona started to play their game, it was over. Messi scored a hattrick, with Alexis Sanchez adding one.
Sergio Busquets played the whole game and played wonderfully. In the absence of Xavi, he tool total control of ball distribution and one very well.
