Barcelona vs Las Palmas 01/10/2017
This match has been caught up in storm due to the Catalan referendum, where Barcelona are pushing for independence from Spain. Just how will it hinder Barca, who have won eight matches in a row in all competitions, the latest a 1-0 victory at Sporting Lisbon, courtesy of an own goal. Two own goals also helped Barcelona to a 3-0 win at Girona last weekend. Las Palmas, meanwhile, have a new coach in Pako Ayestaran. The former Valencia coach replaced Manolo Marquez, who resigned on Tuesday. The yellows, as they are nicknamed, sit 15th on six points. They have never beaten Barcelona in the league.
