Of the few opportunities created afterward, Barca’s strikers could not take advantage of them to equalize.

With great psychological and human advantages, Malaga had even more opportunities to execute sharp counter-attacking play, and scored the score-setting goal in the 90th minute thanks to Jony.

This defeat left coach Enrique’s team at a standstill with 69 points.

Jony kicked the ball into the middle of Barca’s goal.

In fact, things could have been different if Barca had maximized their inherent strength in attack.

Not taking advantage of good opportunities and being lax in defense, Barca had to pay the price.
