Barcelona’s La Liga title chase suffered an painful setback as they lost 1-0 to visitors Malaga on Saturday.

Juanmi scored the only goal of the game after just seven minutes following a schoolboy error by Dani Alves and Barcelona never recovered, producing a rather disappointing display.

Barcelona remain second with a point behind Real Madrid at the top of the Spanish League, but Los Blancos has a chance to extend that to four points against Elche on Sunday.

The loss comes after an impressive record by Barcelona as they had won their previous 11 games in row, scoring 42 goals in the process.

It also makes things interesting as they will go head to with Manchester City for their UEFA Champions League last 16 clash on Tuesday, it will be interesting to see if the loss has demoralised or motivated the Spanish team.

Barcelona fans made offensive chants about Ronaldo during a match

Barcelona and their supporters face punishment after they were reported on Tuesday for repeated derogatory chants against Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo during Sunday’s 5-0 win over Levante at Camp Nou.

According to a report compiled by Spain’s Professional Football League authority (LFP), supporters in the south stand at Camp Nou repeatedly chanted “He is a drunk, Cristiano is a drunk!” in the 65th minute of the game, in reference to the Portuguese’s controversial celebration of his 30th birthday the previous Saturday in Madrid.

“A group of approximately 200 people identified with scarves, banners and flags from supporters’ groups of the local club and in particular, the group known as ALMOGAVERS, located behind the banner identifying that group, started singing the following song: “He is a drunk, Cristiano is a drunk!,” the LFP revealed in a statement on their website, adding that the chant was carried out “repeatedly” and “exclusively” by those fans while others were well-behaved.

The details of the report, which also cites abusive chanting in the Sevilla-Cordoba and Albacete-Betis clashes, have been passed on to Anti-violence and Competition Committees, which could choose to fine both Barca and the fans in question for their behaviour on Sunday.

Ronaldo has long insisted he does not drink alcohol, but was pictured looking worse for wear at his birthday party on February 7, just hours after Madrid had lost 4-0 to Atletico in a disappointing derby defeat at the Vicente Calderon.
