Barcelona couldn't score a goal past Malaga last season. Not in La Rosaleda (0-0) neither at Camp Nou (0-1). Javi Gracia's team gave one of the surprises of La Liga beating Barcelona and today he has spoken to AS about how he is preparing the match against Luis Enrique's men.

Last year's victory

"It was a great match. We worked a lot. There's no other way of getting a result like that one at Barcelona". 

Barcelona not scoring

"Barcelona always have many chances, they are always close to goal and the danger is there every moment. We need to defend very well, but we will try to attack too".

Man-mark Leo Messi?

"We can't mark Leo Messi with only one player. We have to solve it in a cooperative way".
