La Roselada—Andalusia, Spain

Malaga 0-1 Barcelona

Gerardo Martino's Barcelona claimed a hard-fought victory over Malaga on Sunday night, escaping la Roselada with a 1-0 scoreline.

Els Blaugrana dominated possession for long periods but could only convert once, the goal coming from Adriano's long-range wonderstrike, and los Boquerones posed a threat all game long.

Fabrice Olunga came closest to levelling for the visitors, but struck the post after wonderful work from Roque Santa Cruz.
