Our football match prediction:
Barcelona will be looking to build on a 4-1 win over Villarreal when they face Las Palmas at Estadio de Gran Canaria in Sunday’s football game. The Catalan giants aim to retain top position in the La Liga standings, but beating los Amarillos on the road is easier said than done. Las Palmas have been struggling to find their best form of late, but it is well known that they are tough to beat at home and it remains to be seen if they are capable of recording their tenth home win of the season. Croatian attacker Marko Livaja misses the game through suspension and we predict that Kevin-Prince Boateng is going to lead the line for the hosts against Luis Enrique’s troops. Barca have been scoring goals for fun of late and despite the fact that Las Palmas are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the title holders.

Highlighted Team (Barcelona):
Barcelona are a Spanish football club based in Barcelona, Catalonia. Barca were founded in 1899 and they are regarded as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Catalan giants won their 24th La Liga title in 2016, with Luis Suarez winning “El Pichichi” award. Barcelona have won five European Cup trophies and a number of top-class players were part of the team in the past. The likes of Hristo Stoichkov, Romario, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona and Pep Guardiola are some of many players that played for Barca in the past, but, no doubt, Leo Messi has established himself as the club’s trademark. Barcelona welcome their rivals at Camp Nou, the stadium that was built in 1957. Barcelona’s local rivals are Espanyol, but the rivalry between Barca and Real Madrid is much bigger. The two La Liga giants face each other in “El Clasico”, which is considered one of the most exciting derbies in the world football. Barca are famous for their football youth school La Masia as well.
