Last week’s first leg at Camp Nou swung both ways after Manuel Ittura put Malaga ahead midway through the first half. Barca replied with goals from Messi and Puyol within five minutes and looked to be taking a one-goal advantage to Malaga until Iganacio Camacho popped up with a last minute equaliser.
Malaga had to play the final fifteen minutes with ten men when Nacho Monreal was sent off for denying Pedro a clear chance on goal. It was a tense, thrilling game and Camacho’s late volley sets up the second leg for even more excitement. Find more live streaming football in the live streaming sports schedule.
Barcelona have cruised majestically through the first half of the season, forging well clear of their La Liga rivals and qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League suffering just two defeats in all competitions. But Tito Villanova's side has stuttered since returning from the winter break and was surprisingly beaten by Real Sociedad at the weekend.
Malaga’s form has also been patchy since the break when their well-documented off field problems continued to make the headlines. Coppa Del Rey offers the club a welcome respite and although Barcelona won 3-1 at La Rosaleda in the league game ten days ago, this quarter final could go either way.
