Sunday was a strange old day with Barcelona playing Las Palmas at an empty Camp Nou after the game took place behind closed doors due to political unrest in the city.

Two goals from Lionel Messi and another from Sergio Busquets secured the 3-0 win that sees Barca head into the international break top of the table, five points clear.

Ernesto Valverde’s men also maintained their 100% record on a day where football didn’t really seem that important after all - here’s what the papers made of it all.

The message from Sport is simple - Shame. The paper notes Barca opted to play behind closed doors but say it was a game that should not be celebrate.
It’s the same story over at L’Esportiu - again Shame is the headline on the front page
There is no applause for this Barcelona is the line at Marca.
AS go with - The world saw an empty Camp Nou and quote Pique as saying it’s the worst thing to happen in 50 years.
Mundo Deportivo keep it simple with - closed door and explain how and why Barca went ahead with the game with no fans.
