Messi is 'indispensable' to Barcelona says club president

Messi tapped home to make it 2-0 early in the second half after Las Palmas goalkeeper Javi Varas failed to handle a left-flank cross by Rafinha and left the ball in front of the goal. They'll then look for revenge when they travel to Alaves, before they play Leganes at home.

An incredible individual run by Neymar almost sealed the tie as he hit the outside of the post moments later, but Barca held on to maintain their record of not being eliminated by anyone other than Real Madrid since 2008.

The La Liga match between Barcelona and Las Palmas will be broadcast live on BeIN Sports. The game is set for 10:15 AM ET so start the day off right - with some sport!

He said on Saturday that Messi wants to stay with Barcelona and the club will do "everything needed" to keep the five-time world player of the year.

Messi has now scored 26 free kicks for Barcelona: a new club record, the question is: will he have to do it again when the Catalans face a free-flowing Las Palmas on Saturday, or will his team-mates also lend a hand?

Perhaps getting beat by Athletic Bilbao was what the struggling Blaugrana needed?

Barcelona fans better enjoy all of Messi's goals as much as they can, because there's a chance he might be trading in that blaugrana kit for a Premier League uniform.

The Argentine worldwide will see his current deal expire in 2018, and much has been made about Barca's potential inability to meet his financial demands.

Yet, Ronaldo pulls in a £500,000-a-week ($610,535) deal with Los Blanco, according to The Sun.

They were in full flow and a terrific break involving Arda and Suarez led to Gomes drawing a terrific point-blank stop from Varas.

Commending Barcelona for their performance, coach Luis Enrique described the win as one of the best of his time at the club. A draw between the two teams is 9/1.

That sparked Barcelona back into their action, with Suarez playing a lovely chipped through-ball to put Messi, who blasted wide from 12 yards. But a Sergio Ramos penalty and a deflected Karim Benzema shot saw Madrid produce another late miracle to win overall 6-3 and extend their unbeaten run to 40 games.
