Barcelona's Spanish La Liga game against Las Palmas was played behind closed doors as a protest after their request for it to be postponed in light of Catalonia's independence referendum was rejected.

The Spanish government pledged to stop a poll declared illegal on a day of violent protests and unrest.

Barca took the decision to play behind closed doors 25 minutes before kick‑off, with thousands of fans outside.

The league leaders cruised to a comfortable 3‑0 victory.
