Las Palmas vs Barcelona: Enrique to drop Messi, Suarez


Barcelona manager, Ernesto Valverde, has hinted that he might rest Lionel Messi or Luis Suarez against Las Palmas on Thursday.

However, he insisted his team selection will not be influenced by Sunday’s potential title-decider against Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona are seven points clear of second-place Atletico and could strike a definitive blow with a win at Camp Nou when the two teams meet.

“It’s a possibility, but we will see,” Valverde said at a Wednesday news conference when asked if the two players could take a break.

“Regardless, we’re coming off a game on Saturday, so there’s plenty of time to rest for [Las Palmas].

“I don’t want to worry about games after. The focus is on this game. Every game is worth three points. Thinking about Sunday’s game doesn’t help.”
