Barcelona Shouldn't Have Been Forced To Play Las Palmas - Guardiola

The Barca board chose to play the game behind closed doors after their request to have the match postponed was rejected by LaLiga amid violent scenes during Catalonia's independence referendum, which was declared illegal by the nation's constitutional court.

Catalan officials said 840 people had been injured while trying to cast their ballots. It was only 20 minutes before the scheduled kick-off that confirmation came that it would go ahead. But Bartomeu said the images of the game would highlight the "inadmissible situation going on around Catalonia".

And now a board meeting has been called where resignations are expected.

"There were many matters at stake and we discussed these with the different departments of the club: directors, executives, coaches and players".

In his statement Josep María Bartomeu said, "We talked to the executives, the coaches and the players and we chose to play, but behind closed doors, as a protest".

Tesla (TSLA) Stock Recovers Despite Fears of Model 3 Production Bottleneck
The company also raised its full-year deliver outlook to 100,000 vehicles, which would mark an increase of 31% year over year. If it churns out the Tesla's forecasts, conversely, the central subsidies will run out sometime in the upcoming year.

The board have come under pressure during the referendum build up and fans are calling for the heads of several members.

"I understand that there are supporters who do not understand that decision".

Barcelona had requested the game be postponed due to the independence referendum but La Liga refused.

It's been a awful weekend in Catalonia with Spanish authorities exerting force to stop a vote they branded illegal and there were plenty of questions as to whether the La Liga match at Camp Nou would be played.

"It's unacceptable that people are not allowed to vote in a democratic country".

OPEC oil output climbs as Libya, Nigeria recover
Crude oil futures plunged by Rs 55 to Rs 3,318 per barrel on Tuesday as speculators reduced bets amid a weakening trend overseas. According to the Houston Chronicle, 2.4 million barrels of oil a day were drawn from the West Texas Permian basin in 2016.

The decision to play was not a universal one.

"There were arguments to play the game today just as there were arguments to not play the game".

"Despite how much they are incited, and despite how much they [the Spanish authorities and security forces] want them to fall into the trap, they have demonstrated peacefully and sung loud and clear". "We chose to wear a small Spanish flag on our shirts today to display unequivocally our hope in the future of this country", their statement said.

Amid the worldwide break, Barca have already joined a Catalonia-wide strike on Tuesday and will continue to defend the people's right to self-determination.

"What is happening in Catalonia today is shameful", said Xavi, who has made more appearances for Barcelona than any other player. "Spain is an incredible country, with its literature, sport and cities".

O magistrado de Brasília determinou que a transferência de Cunha deve ser realizada "com ou sem a efetivação de seu interrogatório".

But Bartomeu said it's far from certain where Barca will play their football if secession is achieved. "On top of it all, we don't even know if Catalonia does or does not want to be independent". "We will value it when we get to that moment".
