Las Palmas Recent form

Las Palmas will be satisfied with their performance in their first season back in the top flight since 2017-18, despite ending 2023 with a loss to Athletic Bilbao. They have dispelled concerns of an immediate relegation by winning seven, drawing four, and losing seven of their 18 league matches. With just three points separating them from the top seven, they have showcased their resilience by conceding only 15 goals, a feat only surpassed by joint leaders Real Madrid. Additionally, their strong defensive line and home record, with only one loss in eight matches at Estadio de Gran Canaria, have contributed to their success thus far. Although they have already defeated Atletico Madrid at home this season, they face the challenge of securing another victory against a top-four team when they face Barcelona on Thursday. This will be their first meeting since their 1-0 win in the first leg of a Copa del Rey tie in February 1991.

Barcelona Recent form

Barcelona may have welcomed the short winter break following their subpar performance in three of their last five La Liga matches of 2023 (D2, L1). With 11 wins, five draws, and two losses in 18 La Liga games, the Catalan giants find themselves trailing joint-leaders Real Madrid and Girona by seven points as they enter the new year. Though they ended the previous calendar year with a win, they faced a tough challenge from winless Almeria, who managed to equalize twice before Sergi Roberto scored his second goal to secure a narrow 3-2 home victory. Xavi’s team will initiate 2024 with an away game, and despite being one of two teams yet to suffer a loss in an away league match this season, five out of their eight top-flight away matches ended in draws, including their previous two against Valencia and Rayo Vallecano. While they were held to a draw in their most recent encounter with Las Palmas in March 2018, Barcelona can derive encouragement from their five consecutive wins against them before settling for a 1-1 draw almost six years ago.

Additionally, Barcelona’s strong away performance in the league this season suggests they might edge this match.”


Bards’s prediction 

“Despite their home advantage and decent home form (1.88 PPG), expect FC Barcelona to take the win against UD Las Palmas. Barça’s historical dominance (5 wins in 6 encounters) coupled with their good away form (1.75 PPG) favors them heavily. The high average goals per game (3.5) and frequent BTTS occurrences (67%) suggest an entertaining match, but Barcelona’s firepower should overpower Las Palmas”
