Malaga vs. Barcelona: 5 Things We Learned

Another week, another win. Barcelona's inexorable march to the title continued in Malaga's La Rosaleda stadium as Tito Vilanova's side cruised to a 3-1 win over its host.

It seems there is little that will stop Leo Messi and Co. lifting the Liga title in May. Malaga is no pushover, as Real Madrid discovered just a few weeks ago. As well as a solid league record, Manuel Pellegrini's side was the only Spanish competitor to reach the Champions League knockout stages unbeaten, qualifying from a group containing big-spending Zenit and AC Milan.

But Barcelona barely got out of first gear to record another victory, taking its foot off the pedal entirely in the second half after Cesc Fabregas made the points all but secure.

A treble is still in the cards for Vilanova in his first season as a first-team coach, just as his mentor Pep Guardiola achieved in 2008-09.

Malaga will be far from happy about the prospect of another two games over the next week or so against the league leader.
