Welcome to our live coverage of Barcelona-Malaga. This is what you need to know ahead of the kick-off.
Malaga were the only team that Barcelona failed to win against in La Liga last season (D1 L1).
The Blaugranas has only won one of their last three league games at the Camp Nou against Malaga CF.
Barca have only lost one of their last 15 games against sides from Andalusia in La Liga (W12 D2), against Michel's Malaga last season (2-0 at La Rosaleda).
Barcelona have won their last 16 games at home in La Liga, the longest current run of any team in the competition.
On the other hand, Malaga have lost their last four away games in La Liga, the worst current run in the competition.
On six of the seven occasions Barcelona have had 22 points or more after their first eight games of a La Liga season, they ended the campaign as champions (assuming three points per win). The only time they failed with this haul was in 2013/14 under Gerardo Martino when they finished second.
After scoring 10 goals in his first 10 games against Malaga in La Liga, Lionel Messi has only scored one in the next six and it was at La Rosaleda, in January 2016.
Luis Suarez has scored against 24 of the 25 teams he has faced in La Liga (88 goals). The only team he has failed to score against is Malaga.
