FULL-TIME, Las Palmas 1-2 Barcelona: Barça played a very good second half and showed huge character to fight until the end and make a comeback that will boost their confidence at the start of the year. Well done, boys!

90+3’ GOAL!!! Las Palmas 1-2 Barcelona (Gündogan pen): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD!!! Gündogan steps up to the spot and buries home the penalty to complete the comeback deep into stoppage time!!!

91’ PENALTY TO BARCELONA AND RED CARD!!! João Félix’s shot is saved by the goalkeeper and Ilkay Gündogan is pushed in the back by Daley Sinkgraven before he can head the ball home on the rebound. Sinkgraven is also shown a straight red card for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity, and Barça have a golden chance to win it very late.

56’ GOAL!!! Las Palmas 1-1 Barcelona (Ferran): BARÇA EQUALIZE!!! Las Palmas fail to clear the ball away off a Barça corner and it falls to Ferran Torres who finds the bottom corner and makes it all square!

SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Las Palmas 1-0 Barcelona: Back underway at Gran Canaria!

HALFTIME, Las Palmas 1-0 Barcelona: Barça conceded early and struggled to create a meaningful chance for the rest of the half, while Las Palmas played fantastic team defense to keep the away team from having joy in attack. There’s a lot to work on if Barça are to come back in the second half.

12’ GOAL, Las Palmas 1-0 Barcelona (Munir): Las Palmas take the lead. The home team easily pass the ball through Barça’s defense and Sandro Ramírez’s cross is tapped home by Munir El-Haddadi. The two former Barça youngsters combine to put their former team behind early on.

11’ SUBSTITUTION: Barça lose yet another player to injury as João Cancelo is forced off after just 10 minutes with what appears to be a knee injury after a collision in the Las Palmas box.

KICKOFF! Las Palmas 0-0 Barcelona: And we’re underway at Gran Canaria!

Matchday Thread Rules

We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:

Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, watch the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.

Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
