Las Palmas vs Barcelona

We’ve covered the big team news already; the question is what do we expect Luis Enrique to do about it tomorrow? For me, the choice is actually relatively simple; based on the form of key midfield personnel, Enrique should have no hesitation in starting with a three-man backline and trusting his team to deliver the goods. Marlon may have been called up, but I suspect that he will not be starting tomorrow evening. It’s not that he isn’t necessarily ready; it’s more that there’s no need to thrust him immediately into the spotlight in this high pressure scenario. Javier Mascherano will start in his usual role on the right-hand side of the three man backline, while Samuel Umtiti has demonstrated in the past that he is capable of playing the central role. That leaves one last spot – and I would trust Jordi Alba to fill that position, particularly given that Las Palmas often play without a recognised striker.
Prediction
Barcelona wants the league crown more than ever, but knows it is at a disadvantage with one less match. But it lets the league race continue neck and neck for another week. Barca 4, Las Palmas 2.
Don’t let their recent form fool you; Las Palmas remain a threat despite losing six of their last eight matches. At home, Las Palmas have lost just three matches all season and it’s no secret that Barcelona’s inconsistent away form is the reason that Real Madrid are in pole position in this title race. In Quique Setien, Las Palmas boast one of the finest tactical minds in La Liga, and as this promises to be his final home match in charge of the club he will be hoping he can leave with one last positive result.
