Las Palmas – Barcelona
Las Palmas welcomes Barcelona in a game from the 37th round of the Spanish La Liga.Barcelona are the current leader in the league, having the same amount of points as Real Madrid. But they also have a game more than the Los Blancos, which means that nothing is over just yet.Barca needs to keep winning until the end if they want to keep their chances of winning the title. Every mistake in the remaining two rounds could be fatal for them and they know it.As for Las Palmas, they already secured their survival in La Liga, so now they are playing mainly for their own name until the end of the season. They are currently 14th in the league standings. We should say though that their current form is not good at all. Las Palmas lost four of their last five matches, not winning any of them. Certainly not a good stat before playing against Barca.Barcelona on the other hand is flawless lately, winning all of their last five matches in La Liga. Including against Real Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. But will be this enough for them to win the title for the third year in a row? We shall see.Barcelona’s manager Luis Enrique can’t rely on his defender Gerard Pique, who has stomach problems. Sergi Roberto is suspended, while Rafinha and Aleix Vidal are missing the match because of injuries. Jeremy Mathieu and Jordi Alba also have some problems with injuries.Las Palmas will be without the suspended striker Marko Livaja. Dani Castellano is injured, while Mateo Ezequiel Garcia, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Pedro Bigas and Michel Macedo are all doubtful for the visit of the Catalan giants.Arguably this match is much more important for Barcelona than it is for Las Palmas. But against Barca everyone is playing at the top of their ability, so keep this in mind.
