The Catalan giants have dominated this fixture and will look to gain the superior edge once again

Current Primera Division leaders Barcelona will be on the road to the Canary Islands when they take on Las Palmas at the Estadio Gran Canaria on Thursday night.

Paco Jemez’s side find themselves in troubled territory as they sit in 18th place on the log, though one point from safety.

They were able to hold Leganes to a goalless draw last time out but have the difficult job of trying to get something against their Thursday opponents and are underdogs with Bet9ja at (12.50).

The Blaugrana were on song in their last outing as they thumped Girona 6-1 to set a new league record of 32 games unbeaten.

Nobody seems to stop them at the moment despite having a seven-point lead at the top and remain favourites for this one at (1.19).

A stalemate would be a credible result by Las Palmas’ standards and it’s (7.20) with the same firm to see that happen.

Barcelona are undefeated in their last 13 La Liga games against La Union Deportiva, winning the previous five. Backing them with a double chance is available at odds of (1.01).

Jemez’s men have gone six games without a win against the Blaugrana and this favours the Catalan giants to win to nil at odds of (2.02).

Ernesto Valverde’s charges have gone 16 Spanish top-flight without defeat on the road. This puts them in good shape to win both halves at (2.23). They are also priced at (1.19) to score the game’s opening goal at the Gran Canaria.

An average of three goals has been scored in the last three meetings between these two sides and Bet9ja tips such to occur again at (1.35).
