Barcelona continued their unbeaten run on Saturday as they comfortably beat Malaga 2-0 to maintain their four-point lead over Valencia at the top of La Liga.

There was an element of controversy in the result though, as the ball had gone out of play before Lucas Digne’s cross that was converted by Gerard Deulofeu. But, the second goal was in no doubt as Lionel Messi set Andres Iniesta up to score his first goal in over a year.

While the problems deepened for the visitors, Barcelona consolidated their place atop the La Liga table, maintaining their four-point lead over Valencia. Fans were full of praise for Iniesta though, who scored his first league goal in nearly two years.

Gerard Deulofeu was also lauded after he scored his first ever goal in Barcelona colours.

But, concerns are mounting over the form of Luis Suarez, who produced another underwhelming performance on the night.
