Barcelona vs Malaga: Controversy as Catalans maintain perfect start to La Liga season

Posted on Oct 22 2017 - 8:32pm by admin

Gerard Deulofeu scored a controversial opener for Barcelona, as they defeated Malaga 2-0 at the Nou Camp on Saturday, to maintain their perfect start to their domestic campaign.

Deulofeu ended a 16-game wait to score his first Barca goal, striking after just 113 seconds.

However, Lucas Digne appeared to carry the ball out of play before setting him up.

Andres Iniesta doubled their lead, with his first goal for club and country in over a year after the break, to end any hopes of a Malaga comeback.

The victory saw Ernesto Valverde’s men restore a four-point lead over closest challengers Valencia, who crushed Sevilla 4-0 earlier on Saturday, at the top of the table.

Rivals Real Madrid sit eight points adrift in third and are at home to Eibar in their game in hand on Sunday.
