Barcelona v Las Palmas Over 4 Cards

Football - La Liga - 01 Oct 15:15

I've no doubt that Barca will win comfortably here, especially due to Las Palmas' dreadful away record. 6/6 of Las Palmas' games have seen at least 4 cards, with 3/6 of Barca's seeing at least 4. This bet has won comfortably in the last 2 runnings of this fixture, since Las Palmas' return to the top flight. The ref for this one is Jose Luis Munuera Montero, who averaged 4.95 cards per game last year and showed 4 or more in 75% of his games. This year he has shown 4+ in 2/3.

I'm interested in the sub-plot here. The state of Catalonia will vote for whether it wants independence from Spain later, despite opposition from the country’s government, and Las Palmas have made it clear that they are siding with the latter. A club statement just released reads as follows;

“The public pronouncements in recent days, especially from our hosts, FC Barcelona, ​​have turned this Liga Santander match into something more than a sporting event that complies with the fixture list.

“UD Las Palmas could have limited themselves to being silent witnesses at these historical crossroads or taken sides. We have settled for the latter.

“We have decided to embroider a small Spanish flag on our shirts, plus the date of today, October 1, 2017, to testify, without strings, our hope in the future of this country and goodwill of those who live in it, in search of the best understanding."

That's pretty strong words from the Canary Islanders, and with some home-grown Catalan players in the Barca squad such as Pique, Busquets, Jordi Alba, Aleix Vidal, Segi Roberto and Gerrard Deulofeu, no doubt they will be pretty pissed off at this. For me, this creates an edge to the game, which wouldn't necessarily be there under normal circumstances. Barca 20+ booking points is 11/8 with Skybet, and that's worth a punt IMO, as we could see a few flare ups during the game.
