Luis Suarez rips his Barcelona jersey after missing goal-scoring chance

La Liga 17/18 Week 7: Barcelona vs Las Palmas Lineups, Preview & Prediction

New Las Palmas coach Pako Ayestaran admits Barcelona are going to make them suffer but insists he will not send his team out with the sole intention of trying to contain the in-form league leaders on Sunday.

Barcelona made the closed-doors announcement with less than 30 minutes to kick off, with thousands of supporters already waiting outside the stadium. Put a shine on an otherwise poor display by playing in Messi for the Argentine's second.

Las Palmas, in contrast, are down in 17th place with six points and having lost their last two matches at the hands of Sevilla and Leganes.

Beauvue and Eraso got the goals to ensure Las Palmas suffered another defeat and it proved too much for boss Manolo Marquez who resigned shortly after.

Las Palmas tried to respond and Ousmane Tannane saw his shot drift wide before Barcelona went up a gear and doubled their lead.

Barcelona: Rafinha and Ousmane Dembele are both long-term absentees for Barca, and Gerard Deulofeu missed the UEFA Champions League clash with Sporting CP in midweek.

Barca manager Ernesto Valverde understands the importance of beating Las Palmas, before going into an global break.

That leaves tens of thousands of people without access to necessities, most urgently water, long after the September 20 hurricane. Trump has repeatedly boasted about the positive reviews he said his administration is getting from Puerto Rico and the U.S.

Loic Remy (muscle injury), Alfredo Ortuno (ankle) and Pedro Bigas (knee) are major doubts, while Vitolo, Dani Castellano (both thigh), Sergi Samper (calf) and Alan Halilovic (sprained ankle) are short-term absentees. Luis Suarez has been continually frustrating this whole La Liga campaign.

Las Palmas have not been able to play consistent football. The Argentinian striker has slotted in very nicely at Estadio Gran Canaria and he's quickly becoming a fan favourite.

Barcelona's start has been excellent, especially considering the crisis they're enduring off the pitch.

Elsewhere, second-placed Atletico Madrid can close to within a point of Barca with victory at Leganes on Saturday as they look to bounce back from their first defeat of the season at home to Chelsea on Wednesday.

According to Spanish reports, the usual pre-match meal between directors of the home and away clubs at the Nou Camp was cancelled, amid friction between the two camps. It may have been a odd build-up to the game but the result was nothing more than routine.

"Las Palmas could have been limited to being a silent witness of this historical crossroads or to take sides".
