La Liga—Camp Nou, Barcelona

Barcelona 3-0 Malaga

Scorers: Pique (41'), Pedro (55'), Alexis (61')

Barcelona returned to the top of the Liga table on Sunday night by beating Malaga 3-0 at the Camp Nou.

Willy Caballero was in fine form all evening to deny Tata Martino's troops, but Gerard Pique eventually broke the deadline just before half-time from a corner.

The second half was an onslaught, and it didn't take long for Pedro to add a second and seal the result. Alexis Sanchez converted a third from close range to cap a brilliant display.

There was even time for Ibrahim Afellay to make his return to the pitch in a Barca shirt—his first for 634 days.
