Barcelona maintains perfect start as team scores 3 goals against Las Palmas 

Barcelona maintained their flawless start to the season but their 3-0 victory over Las Palmas was overshadowed by events off the pitch.

Sunday’s La Liga clash at the Camp Nou was initially postponed before being played behind closed doors due to safety concerns, as protests related to the Catalonian independence referendum gripped the city.

Matters on the pitch were far less complicated in the end for Ernesto Valverde’s side as a Sergio Busquets goal and a Lionel Messi double overcame a stubborn Las Palmas outfit.
