FC Barcelona 0-0 Málaga CF: Deadlocked - FC Barcelona
Barça may have been in complete control from start to finish against Málaga on Saturday afternoon, but they failed to turn any of that supremacy into goals and are left to dwell on what might have been. The scoreboard remained unmoved, with the Andalusians’ defensive intensity and some outstanding goalkeeping from Carlos Kameni denying the Catalans the chance to temporarily move to the top of the Liga table.
