Normal Service Resumes At Camp Nou – Barcelona v Las Palmas Ultimate Form Guide

By timgarrett IN General,La Liga,Ultimate Form Guide - 20:10 Jan 13th 2017
 

Barcelona head into this weekend’s fixture in unfamiliar surroundings. No, their stadium hasn’t changed, but their league position is certainly not one they have become accustomed to over the years. Last season’s Spanish double winners currently sit in 3rd place, trailing leaders Real Madrid by 5 points, and they will be desperate to keep pace as Las Palmas come to town.

Their visitors are performing admirable in La Liga this season, currently sitting in a highly respectful 8th position. But will they have enough to cause at upset at Camp Nou?

Barcelona’s recent form has been uncharacteristically stuttering of late, with just 5 wins in their last 10. They have been beaten just once in that sequence, but the frequency with which they are drawing games must be of concern.

Given the wealth of attacking talent Barca have at their disposal, it’s particularly suprising that their average conversion rate is as low as 18%. The fact that Las Palmas’ strikers are currently proving more clinical with a conversion rate of 20% suggests that Leo Messi & co need to up their game.

All of that being said, Barca still come out on top in 12 out of the 15 key statistical areas in our Ultimate Form Guide (above), meaning they must still be considered incredibly strong favourites on Saturday afternoon.
