LA LIGA: Barcelona grab nervy win at Malaga

Reuters, MADRID

The heavily bearded Arda, given a rousing ovation when he was replaced with about 20 minutes left, capped a fine performance when he floated a cross over from the left for an unmarked Tiago to nod in a 53rd-minute fourth.

Spain international forward David Villa, who joined Atletico from Barcelona in the summer, had a frustrating night and cracked a first-time shot against the crossbar in the 78th minute, before Garcia scored his second in the 90th minute.
