Albert Jorquerra has been given the green signal for tonight's match, but Barca is definite to miss Gerard Pique for tonight's encounter. Gerard Pique is suffering from fever and the press reports suggests that he has been send home in a bid to recover as early as possible. This means that our defense will be stretched completely with alreasy Puyol, Milito and Abidal injured. Barca Atletic defender Alberto Botía has been called up to train with the first team and is expected to make the squad along with Sanchez. FC Barcelona will be looking to continue theirn ruthless form which was refound in the recent matches. Last time these two team mets it was Barca who came on top at a wet pitch in Malaga by a scoreline of 4-1. Malaga has been impressive since then taking themselves to sixth position in the table. But a trip to Nou Camp is not the easiest one to make for them. Barca has an impressive record against Malaga at Camp Nou winning 24 of 27 games. But still the lack of defenders will be something for Guardiola to worry on.

Guardiola will be expected to call on Caceres to do the defensive duties along with Marquez at the centre. Sylvinho who has been impressive in recent matches once again is expected to fill the left-back position whereas Alves should occupy his usual position. At Camp Nou with a fragile defensive line-up it is essential for the midfield to retain possession for most part of the game. Hence there is a necessity to have both Xavi and Iniesta playing alongside with Toure. The front three has to be unchanged with Henry, Eto and Messi. The midfield battle will be crucial for tonight's match. We cannot give any hope to Real Madrid so we have to be at our clinical best. Messi looked like coming back to a bit of his early form in recent matches. But one man I will be eagerly watching would be Dani Alves, he had a decent second half last week so we expect him to build on it. Malaga may be lying sixth with troubling everyone, but we can expect Barca to see off them easily. My prediction would be a Barca victory with a scoreline of 3-0.
