Can Barcelona scare Real Madrid with an easy win?

Barcelona’s victory over Las Palmas on Saturday night is a huge sure thing, but the Catalans still have plenty of problems with their squad.

Saturday night sees the end of the La Liga with Barcelona vs Las Palmas, and the odds suggest a classic national number one. Barcelona have 64 points so far, compared to 37 for Las Palmas. Moreover the last time the Canaries scored in the Catalan capital was 22 years ago. If we take these into account, the bookmakers’ odds are justified.

Team news Barcelona vs Las Palmas

Not much has changed at Barcelona during the international break. The midfield line is still completely absent due to injury. With Gavi, Pedri, de Jong and Christiensen, who was playing as a ‘forced substitute’, also out of the line-up. Neither Marcos Alonso nor Balde are fit, and Ferran Torres is yet to recover.

The situation is in doubt for Ronald Araujo, who has complained of muscle injuries. It is not known whether Robert Lewandowski, who was kicked in the national team match, will play. The Pole could be replaced by Marc Guiu, just 18, as press reports suggest that Xavi wants to rest Yamal, who is also available for the Spanish national team.

Las Palmas have a full squad, with Julian Araujo reportedly the only key man to be left out.

It’s a cliché, but it’s worth bearing in mind that top teams often suffer in their first return matches after national team breaks.

The reason for this is that 70-80% of the frames are blown around the world and it is difficult for teams to get back on track in a day or two. This is the case with Barcelona at the moment, so we are cautious about what the team looks like. A win is still a possibility, and Xavi’s side will probably get the 3 points at home on Saturday night, but we would like to spice up this outcome by giving Las Palmas a +2.5 goal bonus. This combo is at odds of 2.17 and is our main tip for the meeting.

Based on Barcelona’s team history, we have to say that some odds are certainly wrong in the goalscorer markets. The lowest odds are on Lewandowski, who may or may not start. The Pole has not been in top form in the league this season anyway, so we would certainly recommend odds of 1.70. Joao Félix’s odds of 2.55 could be more interesting. The Portuguese found the back of the net against Atlético and is now in the starting line-up. This is important for him because he doesn’t really shine as a substitute. With 18-year-old Guidu and Rapinha alongside him in the expected starting line-up, he could be the lead bull in attack.
