Barcelona 3-0 Las Palmas: Messi nets brace in empty stadium


Barcelona eased to victory over Las Palmas in a match that was almost called off amidst the tensions in the city due to the unofficial referendum for Catalonian independence being held at the same time. However, Barca decided to go ahead with the game behind closed doors for security reasons and after a surreal first half in which neither team could find its bearings, the home side finally came to life - with Sergio Busquets scoring off a corner and Messi then popped up with two well taken goals to make it seven goals from seven.
