Barcelona vs Las Palmas
Date: 1st October 2017
Kick off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Camp Nou.
Barcelona will be looking to maintain their perfect record on Sunday afternoon when they host Las Palmas in the seventh round of Primera Division at Camp Nou.
Blaugrana struggled a lot to break the deadlock in the mid-week’s Champions League visit to Jose Alvalade, but Messi’s set-piece ended in Coates’ own goal for a narrow 0-1 victory for the Catalans.
Ernesto Valverde’s squad are thus on maximum six points in the continental competition as well and they seem unstoppable in spite of a poor kick off to the season with back-to-back losses to Real Madrid in Spanish Super Cup.
The Canaries have been playing hot and cold since the start of the season. They are currently on a run of two consecutive losses without netting a single goal against Sevilla and Leganes.
The manager Pako Ayasteran was especially disappointed with the performance his men offered in the 0-2 defeat to Leganes on the home court last weekend.
Barcelona vs Las Palmas: Head to head
Las Palmas have never been a tricky opposition for Barcelona who have won six and drawn two of their previous eight meetings with Blaugrana.
Barca have been more than dominant in both of the last season’s fixtures when their wins saw the impressive goal differential of 9-1.
Barcelona vs Las Palmas: Prediction
Everything points out to a yet another high-scoring display from the Catalans and we’ll back them to beat their rivals by three or more goals as the top betting pick here.
This will be a fantastic opportunity for Lionel Messi to add to his impressive Primera Division tally and we’ll take the Argentine superstar to net two or more goals here at the odds of 8/11.
Barcelona vs Las Palmas: Bets
