Barcelona vs Las Palmas: Preview, predictions and lineups

Xavi Hernandez head coach

Barcelona host mid-table Las Palmas in La Liga on Saturday night knowing they need a flawless record if they are to catch Real Madrid at the top of the table.

Xavi’s side have improved since it was confirmed the manager would leave the club at the end of the season but the distance between them and Madrid is still eight points despite winning four of their last five league games.

Las Palmas are having a solid campaign and currently sit in 11th place, only five points off seventh. 2023/24 will likely go down as a success but they are without a win in five matches and in danger of seeing their season fizzle out.

Here’s 90min’s preview of Barcelona vs Las Palmas.
