The FC Barcelona game against Malaga was as though no worked without Messi and Suarez on the front line. The game makes it the third game this season the Catalan club dropped points in Camp Nou. The meeting also without Luis Suarez, Andre Iniesta and Samuel Umtiti even made the game harder than it really is for the Blaugranas.
Malaga fell deep to defend the ball from finding it way into the net and it really worked for them, while Luis Enrique’s side sent deep into the opponent’s half and dominated in ball possession.
In the first half, Neymar was very slow while on the right Sergi Roberto’s attack was very precise. But the second half was different as the Blaugranas knew there was no time to romance the ball around.
With Neymar on a constant threat against Malaga. In the 69th minute of the game, Llorente was sent off after a bad tackle on Neymar. With one man down, Malaga continued to absorb the heat from Barcelona. With more saves from Carlos Kameni.
When the striker couldn’t fine the net, it resulted to Pique coming out as a center forward and even created more chances for Barca to take the lead. Kameni did what he knows how to do best by hindering several clear cut chances for FC Barcelona goals.
Indeed, Kameni made the day for the Boquerones after the last minute save that stopped Neymar’s header from earning Barca the three points.
