Manuel Pellegrini is one of the best managers in football.

As great as Tito Vilanova's rookie season has been, it will take a few years to even be in the same league as the great Malaga coach.

One team that has always troubled the Chilean, though, is Barcelona, especially at his current job.

Since taking over at Malaga, Pellegrini has lost all four matches against La Blaugrana by a combined score of 15-4.

This means that despite Malaga's fine table placement, Barça will be considered heavy favorites in this one.

Los Boquerones would love to end their losing streak this Sunday, but Barcelona are in fantastic form while the hosts are coming off of a shock defeat to Deportivo.

Despite the recent results and gap in quality, there are plenty of battles that will have La Liga fans dying for the first whistle to sound.

Let's take a look at four of the most pivotal ones as we prepare for La Liga's blockbuster match of the round.
