|" MADRID Cheap Mikael Granlund Jersey , Sept. 23 (Xinhua) -- Barcelona look to stretch their 100 percent record at the start to the current season to five matches as they travel to face Malaga on Wednesday night.
Luis Enrique's side sit on top of the BBVA Primera Liga with some enviable numbers at the moment, given that the Catalans have won their four league matches to date and have yet to concede a goal.
Malaga should prove to be more complicated rivals than Levante, who lost 5-0 at home to Barca on Sunday, after finding themselves down to 10 men five minutes before halftime and Luis Enrique could make changes to his starting 11 with players such as Marc Bartra, Gerard Pique or Munir having a chance of starting Cheap Alex Stalock Jersey , given that there is another round of matches this coming weekend.
Barca's form so far this season has given grounds for optimism among their fans after last season's disappointments and a fifth consecutive win, would keep the feelgood factor high.
Atletico Madrid have not had such a positive start to the campaign and coach Diego Simeone serves the last of his four-game touchline suspension on Wednesday's visit to Almeria.
Simeone has not yet found the perfect replacement for Diego Costa and with Mario Mandzukic out with a broken nose he will have to decide whether he sticks with Raul Jimenez, who disappointed in Saturday's 2-2 draw at home to Celta Vigo, or push Raul Garcia into a more attacking role.
Athletic Club Bilbao have not had the start they would like and will hope that Rayo Vallecano's defensive frailties give them an option on their trip to Vallecas. Rayo have shown they can score goals, but their cavalier style has also left them open at the back. Athletic could have Ibai Gomez and Aymeric Laporte available for the game.
Eibar hope to maintain their excellent start to their first season in the top-flight at home to Villarreal Cheap Jonas Brodin Jersey , who have shown they are playing excellent football this campaign.
Sevilla are another team in great early season form as Unai Emery once again works his magic and Carlos Bacca will be aiming to get on the score-sheet to a Real Sociedad that have struggled for consistency at the start to the campaign, while a rock-solid Granada should increase the pressure on bottom of the table Levante, who have just one point so far this season.
Just to add extra spice to the game Granada coach, Joaquin Caparros spent last season at Levante.

Eighth meeting expected to dispel misunderstandings
Chinese President Xi Jinping is set to meet his US counterpart Barack Obama Thursday in Washington, DC, which observers hope could help the two countries dispel misunderstandings and reach agreements on North Korea and the South China Sea issues.
Marking the first meeting between Xi and Obama in 2016, Thursday's event will be the eighth meeting between the two presidents since Xi took office in 2013.
As this is also the first meeting between the two since Pyongyang tested a nuclear device in January Cheap Nino Niederreiter Jersey , observers said it will be a good chance to discuss the North Korean crisis. Also, as the US has been stepping up its accusation against China for "militarizing" the South China Sea, the two sides are expected to discuss this issue.
Taiwan is also expected to be discussed, as pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party head Tsai Ing-wen was elected Taiwan leader in January and will assume office in May.
The US media is keeping close tabs on the Xi-Obama meeting. The New York Times said that Sino-US ties are at the lowest point for 15 years, and the South China Sea issue is "the most prominent point of friction" between the two countries.
"If the South China Sea issue is raised Cheap Matt Cullen Jersey , President Xi will express China's position to the US side," Chinese vice foreign minister Li Baodong said at a press briefing last week in Beijing.
The Xi-Obama meeting will be held on the sidelines of the Fourth Nuclear Security Summit. The Chinese government has said that the two leaders will exchange views on bilateral relations as well as international and regional issues, including the North Korea nuclear issue.
The White House has also made it clear that the two countries will not only talk about cooperation, but also address "areas of disagreement."
The meeting would be a great opportunity for the two countries to reach further agreement on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, Dong Xiangrong Cheap Charlie Coyle Jersey , a research fellow at the National Institute of International Strategy of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times on Wednesday.
"It seems that the first round of sanctions has had an effect on North Korea so far," Dong noted.
Earlier this year, after North Korea's nuclear and missile tests, the possible deployment in South Korea of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system Cheap Erik Haula Jersey , a US missile defense system, met with strong opposition from China over fears that the move would harm China's strategic security interests.
"Instead of being a pure technical issue, the possible deployment of the US THAAD system in South Korea is a strategic issue that has a bearing on peace and stability in Northeast Asia," Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hong Lei told a daily press conference on Wednesday, when asked whether China will accept a technical briefing from the US side.
China and Russia have already come to a common stance to oppose the THAAD deployment and more negotiations with the US side are expected Cheap Darcy Kuemper Jersey , Dong said.
Cooperation between China and the US is vital to address the North Korea nuclear i.
