Lionel Messi is expected to be fit as Barcelona make the tricky trip to Malaga Saturday looking to move back to the top of La Liga.Malaga took four points from a possible six against Barca in La Liga last season and were only defeated 1-0 thanks to Thomas Vermaelen's late strike when the two sides met at the Camp Nou earlier this campaign.Malaga have already aided Barca's title challenge this year by holding Real Madrid to a 0-0 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu back in September and beating Atletico Madrid 1-0 last month.Madrid have scored five times in disposing of Deportivo la Coruna and Sporting Gijon at home in Zidane's two games in charge since replacing Rafael Benitez earlier this month.In contrast to Real's free-scoring form, Betis haven't scored in seven consecutive games as part of a 10-game winless run.
