Barcelona vs Las Palmas Prediction: La Liga Match

Second-placed Barcelona will look to keep Real Madrid honest at the top of La Liga when they go one-on-one against Las Palmas at Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys on Saturday, with kickoff slated for 20:00 GMT.

Key Highlights

Barcelona Are Looking to Make It Three Back-to-Back Wins in La Liga

Four wins and a draw from their last five outings have seen Barcelona leapfrog Girona into second in La Liga.

With nine matches remaining and an eight-point deficit to leaders Real Madrid, Barcelona’s chances of challenging for the title are purely mathematical.

However, Xavi Hernandez will expect his side to retain their momentum as they look to capitalize on any slipup by Los Blancos.

A win on Saturday against Las Palmas will bring the three points they need to apply some pressure on Real Madrid and retain their lead over the chasing pack in the fight for the top four.

Winless in their Last Five Outings, Las Palmas are Looking to Return to the Points in La Liga

Las Palmas’ form has suffered in recent matches; they have collected two points from a possible 15 in their last five outings in La Liga, drawing twice, and losing three times, including back-to-back defeats against Athletic Club at home (0-2) and at home to Almeria last time out (0-1).

Las Palmas will look to steady their shape and make it difficult for sides to play through them. They will need this chance quickly given they face an attacking Barcelona side with the talent to break them down.

Head-to-Head Statistics

Barcelona and Las Palmas have met 11 times since 2000, in all competitions. Barcelona have not lost in this stretch, winning eight times and drawing in three matches.

In their last five meetings, Barcelona has won four times and drawn once. This underscores why match predictions hand Xavi’s men the advantage ahead of Saturday’s clash.

Injury Report

Barcelona will be without Gavi, Alejandro Balde, Pedri, and Frankie de Jong due to injury.

Las Palmas have not reported fresh injury worries ahead of their trip to face Barcelona on Saturday.


Barcelona will be the favorites to win this match given their recent form and head-to-head dominance. They will make it three consecutive wins in La Liga and apply pressure at the top.
