Barcelona continues to get wins in the La Liga as Messi’s brace seals points at empty Camp Nou.


There were Speculations if the game should be postponed due to the protests before the match but La Liga told Barcelona to go ahead but the match would be played without the Fans been involved.

Goals from Sergio Busquets and Lionel Messi were enough to calm the nerves of angry Barcelona Fans as the team defeated Las Palmas 3-0 at Camp Nou, preserving their 100 per cent record in LaLiga.

Reports have it that up to 465 people were injured according to a statement released by the Catalan health ministry, after the referendum was declared to be unconstitutional by the country’s national government.

But a home side featuring five Catalans were seemingly unsettled by the circumstances and their surroundings during a listless first-half showing.

The half-time introduction of Ivan Rakitic and Andres Iniesta by Ernesto Valverde proved inspired as their midfield colleague Busquets one of the Catalan contingent crowned Barcelona’s most convincing passage of play by breaking the deadlock in the 49th minute.

Messi then came to the fore in typical style with a brace inside the final 20 minutes to increase Barcelona’s advantage over Real Madrid to 10 points before their rivals host Espanyol later on Sunday, although a late injury to Iniesta took some shine off the win.
