Barcelona hold on to deny Las Palmas a share of the spoils in this game. The minnows put up a spirited performance and pushed the Catalans hard throughout the match
...
FT: Las Palmas 1 - 2 Barcelona
...
92' HUGE CHANCE! What a save by Vargas to deny Neymar. Las Palmas had thrown everyone up front to find an equalizer which led to Barcelona breaking. They had a 4 on 2 situation there but Vargas makes a wonderful save to deny the Brazilian his second goal
...
90' 3 minutes have been added on as Barcelona are looking to hang on to their one goal lead
...
89' HUGE CHANCE! Its Araujo again who wastes the opportunity. He runs on to a wonderful lofted ball behind the defence but prods his shot wide under pressure from the onrushing Bravo
...
88' Bravo is wasting a bit of time here. Who would have thought Barcelona would be clinging on to the result so desperately at Las Palmas
...
86' Yellow card for Dani Alves
...
84' Roque Mela gets a yellow card for a foul on Luis Suarez
...
83' CHANCE! The referee plays a wonderful advantage and Araujo gets a good chance inside the box. The Spaniard's shot goes centimeters wide. Close to an equaliser there.
...
81' Barcelona seem off color today and are struggling to maintain a good tempo here
...
78' Las Palmas still believe they can take something out of this game and they have a little above 12 minutes to do so
...
77' Araujo almost makes an immediate impact, the former Barcelona 'B' man sends a shot just wide
...
Stat: Araujo scored 25 goals after in the second divison last season. He has managed only 3 in the La Liga this season.
...
75' Las Palmas make a change as El Zhar is replaced by Araujo
...
72' Messi looks to cause some problems down the right-hand side, but an eventual cross from the Barca forward is deflected behind for a corner
...
69' Barcelona make their second substitution of the day as Sergi Roberto is replaced by Thomas Vermaelen
...
67' The impressive Viera comes off as Lemos comes on for Las Palmas
...
64' Viera is brought down, with the Las Palmas forward quick to get back to his feet - though perhaps a little gingerly. Neymar is released in behind enemy lines, following a great throughball from Sergi Roberto, but the former is caught just the wrong side of his marker. Offside!
...
60' HUGE CHANCE! Rakitic deals horribly with a high cross in the box. The ball ends up going to the impressive Viera who strikes a powerful shot which is parried by Bravo. Willian Jose on the follow up only hits the side netting. Big Chance for Willian Jose there
...
...
57' Las Palmas surprising enjoy a lengthy spell of possession, before El Zhar gets dispossessed while trying to drift infield from the right-hand side. The hosts switch play from the right to the let, but an eventual throughball into Jose is intercepted neatly by Mathieu.
...
54' BLOCKED! Neymar sends a cross which evades Suarez who was trying something spectacular and lands at Rakitic's feet. Rakitic's left legged shot is blocked well by the Las Palmas defence
...
52' Mathieu makes a timely block to deny Jose, before the ex-Valencia defender pummels a rushed clearance upfield! This second half has been very end-to-end thus far, with Las Palmas still managing to fire searching balls into teasing areas. Barca threaten through Suarez, but a throughball from the ex-Ajax striker is cut out.
