The Blaugrana head to the islands for their 26th league game of the season and they will be aiming to extend their unbeaten league run

Barcelona make the trip to Gran Canaria on Thursday as they take on Las Palmas in La Liga.

Ernesto Valverde's side are seven points clear at the top of the Primera Division and they come into the game brimming with confidence after a 6-1 win over Girona at the weekend.

They will hope to maintain that lead at the very least by beating the islanders, which would set them up nicely for their top-two meeting with Atleti this coming Sunday.

Las Palmas, meanwhile, find themselves in the relegation zone and face a tough task if they are to overcome a side that already defeated them 3-0 earlier in the season.

Match Preview

Since losing to local rivals Espanyol in January, Barcelona have put together a 10-match unbeaten run and, having put six goals past Girona, they appear to have picked up the pace once more.

They have taken it up a gear at the right time, with Liga matches against Atletico Madrid and Malaga on the horizon this month, as well as a crunch Champions League last 16 tie against Chelsea.

However, despite that, they will have to be wary of struggling Las Palmas, who have pulled off results at home against the likes of Valencia, Real Betis and Athletic.

When they last faced off - at the Camp Nou in October - the game was played without spectators, which made for an eerie atmosphere, but did not stop Lionel Messi and Co. from winning.

Valverde will be expecting more of the same on Thursday and he will be hoping his key men come through unscathed with one eye on the upcoming match against Atleti.
