4/1 Accurate Football Predictions: Las Palmas vs Barcelona

Betting Tips

Barcelona is currently seven points down in the La Liga standings, and Las Palmas could cause them even more problems in their 2024 season opener. With 18 games played, the Catalan giants have accumulated 38 points, while Real Madrid and Girona, the leaders, have amassed 45 points apiece, putting Barca’s title dreams in jeopardy.

Las Palmas vs Barcelona

Matchday 19 of the La Liga 2023–24 season will see FC Barcelona visit Las Palmas, who were just promoted and have been playing well this season. With 25 points from their first 18 games, the recently promoted team is currently sitting ninth in the standings. This weekend, both the Canary Island Club and the Blaugranas are playing for three points.

As the new year gets underway, Xavi’s Barcelona and the reigning La Liga champions are scheduled to visit the Gran Canaria stadium. In what turned out to be their last game of 2023, the Azulgranas defeated Almeria 3-2 at home, with braces from captain Sergi Roberto. Due in large part to their recent injury issues, the Blaugrana team has displayed signs of instability this season.

Thursday’s bout is one Xavi won’t be looking forward to. Las Palmas are stubborn opponents, with their success built off the second-best defensive record in the division. They’ve conceded just 15 goals this term – but have scored only 15 themselves.

Verdict

The main reason Las Palmas is securely positioned in the middle of the table in La Liga is its impenetrable defense, which has allowed just 15 goals in 18 games.

Alvaro Valles, their goalie, has an outstanding defensive record, and this season, they have already defeated Atletico Madrid at home. The island team has only let up more than one goal this season, so the outcome of Thursday’s matchup will probably come down to the narrowest of margins.

They have drawn with Real Sociedad, defeated Atletico Madrid, and defeated Villarreal this season, among other teams. Las Palmas have also mitigated the damage in their 1-0 and 2-0 losses to Girona and Real Madrid earlier in the campaign. They are skilled at frustrating the larger teams in the league.

Expect a low-scoring matchup as their league matches are averaging a pitiful 1.67 goals per game this season, and each of their previous six games has featured fewer than 2.5 goals.

The best match wager is under 2.5 goals, although given Barca’s inconsistent play in December, the draw might be the better option.
