Barca-Las Palmas in the balance

Sunday’s match between Barcelona and Las Palmas, which kicks off in less than three hours, could be postponed.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barca are awaiting a report from the Security Council of Catalonia to determine whether the game at Camp Nou is safe to go ahead.

It comes after ugly scenes were witnessed in Barcelona as the Catalan people clashed with riot police when trying to cast their votes in the Catalan independence referendum.

Blaugrana President Josep Maria Bartomeu would have also contacted the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and La Liga to follow suit in requesting the report.

Once the report is prepared, the Security Council would send it to the relevant bodies, before its contents are made public.

Las Palmas have already condemned the referendum, given it was not consented by the Spanish government, and will wear the country’s flag on their jerseys.

Marca, meanwhile, claims Barca have asked the RFEF for the match to be called off.

However, the newspaper adds the Federation has told the club that the game will be fulfilled, unless authorities deemed there to be a threat to public order.

Barca Vice-President Jordi Cardoner noted earlier in the week: “We won’t go out [on to the pitch] with the senyera [Catalan flag], but [the players] will wear it on their collars and in their hearts.”
