Alves mistake costs hands Malaga win against BarcelonaFebruary 23, 2015
A mistake from Dani Alves seven minutes into the game cost Barcelona three points on Saturday afternoon when Malaga beat the Catalans 1-0 at the Nou Camp. Juanmi intercepted a sloppy back-pass by Alves to Claudio Bravo to put the ball home for the visitors and ending an eleven-game winning streak for Barça.
Despite dominating possession the Catalans created few chances and, after Suarez was brought down just outside the area 30 minutes into the match, when handed the opportunity of a free kick Messi put the ball over the bar, while Malaga failed to create any real danger either.
The second half saw Barcelona come on re-energised but time and time again were ruled offside and failed to make any impact. In the closing minutes the players ramped up their efforts but to no avail and they failed to leapfrog Real Madrid at the top of the table.
0-1 Juanmi (min 7)
