DEVASTATING NEWS: Coming from Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona legend reacted to Barcelona’s 2-1 comeback win against UD Las Palmas in their latest La Liga showdown on Thursday, January 4, at Estadio Gran Canaria. He said “Thieves. This is pure robbery. Shame on you guys. Barca only needed a rigged penalty to win a newly promoted side.” Xavi is not the man for Barcelona he should be fired.


Fans on X (formerly Twitter) shared their reactions to Barcelona’s recent 2-1 comeback victory against UD Las Palmas during their La Liga clash on January 4 at Estadio Gran Canaria. The game started with a setback for Barca as full-back Joao Cancelo suffered an early injury, exiting the pitch in the 11th minute. Not long after, Munir El Haddadi scored for Las Palmas, breaking the deadlock against his former club in the 12th minute.

Despite Las Palmas taking the lead, Barcelona managed to equalize through Ferran Torres in the 55th minute, setting the stage for what seemed like a draw. However, in a tightly contested second half, Barcelona was awarded a penalty, leading to Las Palmas defender Daley Sinkgraven receiving a red card for the foul on Ilkay Gundogan. Gundogan converted the penalty in injury time, securing all three points for Xavi’s side. Yet, this penalty decision became a point of contention among fans online, with some accusing Gundogan of diving to earn it.

Expressing their dissent, one fan on X commented, “Thieves. This is pure robbery. Shame on you guys,” while another added, “Barca only needed a rigged penalty to win against a newly promoted side.” Despite the controversy, Barcelona’s late triumph propelled them to the third position in the La Liga standings, accumulating 41 points from 19 matches. They currently trail behind league leaders Real Madrid and second-placed Girona by a margin of seven points.

Looking ahead, Barcelona’s next match is scheduled for Sunday, January 7, where they will face UD Barbastro from the fourth tier of Spanish football in the Copa del Rey Round of 32. The game is slated to take place at Estadio Municipal de Deportes, a stadium with a limited seating capacity of 5,000.

Ferran Torres, who scored Barcelona’s equalizer against Las Palmas, was rightfully named the Man of the Match for his outstanding performance in the La Liga fixture. Before being substituted in the 78th minute, Torres showcased his impact, completing 16 passes, delivering a successful cross, and executing two accurate long balls. His contributions were pivotal to Xavi’s team performance.

As an ex-Manchester City and Valencia winger, Torres has emerged as a key player for the Catalan club this season. Across 24 appearances in various competitions, he has netted seven goals and provided three assists for his teammates, solidifying his importance within the Barcelona squad.
