Barcelona’s La Liga tie against LasPalmas has reportedly been postponed due  to a riot  that erupted  in the city.According to dailymail, riot police had been deployed around Catalonia on the day of the region’s controversial independence referendum, with tempers fraying in Barcelona.

The report also stated that RAC1 claim Barcelona asked for the game to be cancelled, and they could be slapped with a six-point deduction from La Liga.

Officers had however fired  rubber bullets at protesters demonstrating against their votes being taken away, and the decision has reportedly been made to cancel the match at the Nou Camp.
