Barcelona facing injury crisis ahead of trip to Las Palmas

However, Real Madrid have a game in hand over their rivals as they bid to earn their first domestic crown since 2012. That means the Catalan pacesetters can't afford any slips if they're to stand any chance of winning the title, including Sunday's encounter with mid-table Las Palmas.

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said on Saturday the match against Las Palmas is very hard but his team will fight until the end to try and win both La Liga and the King's Cup.

In his post-match interview with Movistar+, Suarez said: "We did our job which was to win our game".

The Barca boss claimed to be confident that he will be able to answer the conundrum against a Las Palmas team who can pose a significant attacking threat on their day, having scored three or more goals on six occasions at home this season.

Following a review of the incident (which can be seen below), the FIFA Disciplinary Committee threw the book at the Barcelona striker and banned him for nine worldwide matches, meaning he missed the rest of his country's World Cup campaign.

Striker Marko Livaja will miss the visit of Barcelona through suspension. Expect Lionel Messi, 29, Neymar, 25, and Luis Suarez, 30, to show no mercy when they meet Los Amarillos at Gran Canaria for this match. We wanted to have a good dynamic in the final stretch of the season, we can not lose any games and we are on the right track.

Las Palmas fell to their third straight defeat on the bounce as they fell to a 1-0 loss at Sporting Gijon.

"Sometimes I look back at the videos and photos of those days when I was locked in a tiny gym with Juanjo [Brau], looking for place to go running away from the press. I felt it was for the best", he told La Republica, according to ESPNFC.
