Messi Brace Sees Barca Maintain Winning Start

Spanish La Liga Report: FC Barcelona v Las Palmas 01 October 2017

By SL International - Oct 01, 2017 06:03 PM

Spanish La Liga

Result: FC Barcelona 3-0 Las Palmas

Date: 01 October 2017

Venue: Camp Nou

Lionel Messi netted a brace to lead FC Barcelona to a 3-0 win over Las Palmas, but the Catalan giants were forced to play behind closed doors.

The game was being played behind closed due to circumstances in Catalunya on the day.

The hosts nearly went ahead after just six minutes but Sergi Roberto's long range effort was turned away by Chichizola.

Paulinho kept his spot in the line up, and he nearly broke the deadlock in the 33rd minute but his header sailed inches wide of the upright.

Las Palmas  nearly stunned the home side just before the break as Calleri rattled the upright from close range.

Barca eventually broke the deadlock four minutes into the second half courtesy of a glancing header from Sergio Busquets.

Lionel Messi had the chance to extend Barcelona's lead in the 56th minute, but the Argentine headed wide of the upright following a cross from Luis Suarez.

Messi was not to be denied in the 70th minute as he collected a fine pass from Denis Suarez before sliding the ball past Chichizola.

Seven minutes later, Barca bagged a third goal as Luis Suarez played in Messi, who slotted home with his for his second on the night.

With time running out, Ernersto Valverde introduced Andre Gomes for Andreas Iniesta as they saw out the remaining stages with relative ease.

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane and captain Hlompho Kekana were among the winners at the Gauteng Sports Awards at SilverStar Casino in Krugersdorp on Sunday night. Mosimane was named Coach of the Year, beating Golden Lions rugby tactician Johannes Nthooro Mongalo and Kelsey White of Central Gauteng Water Polo. Kekana won the Sports Personality of the Year accolade ahead of Banyana Banyana star Janine van Wyk - who was denied the Sportwoman of the Year gong by Tanita Ramburuth Hurt - and athletes Luvo Manyonga and Sheldon Thomas. Kekan missed out on the Sportman of the Year prize to rower Lawrence Brittian. Sundowns were also crowned Sports Team of the Year, amid competition from the Lions and Wits Tang Soo Do (martial arts), following their CAF Champions League heroics last season.
