There were more than 99,000 empty seats at the Camp Nou on Sunday as Barcelona beat Las Palmas 3-0. The game was played behind closed doors due to events surrounding a Catalan independence referendum. Spanish authorities deemed the referendum to be illegal with violent scenes erupting as a result.
Shortly before the game between Barcelona and Las Palmas was due to kick-off, and with fans waiting outside the stadium to get in, it was announced that they would not be allowed attend the match. It led to surreal circumstances for the La Liga game.
Spanish show El Día Después usually has to resort to lipreading to inform viewers what has been said between players on the pitch - it's why you often see Messi, Ronaldo and Co. covering their mouths while in a discussion on the pitch.
The lack of noise at the Camp Nou on Sunday meant there was no need for lipreading. Microphones picked up words which are usually inaudible.
A discussion between Luis Suarez, Las Palmas goalkeeper Leandro Chichizola and referee Jose Luis Munuera Montero is of particular interest.
In the 53rd minute, Suarez went down in the box, Montero booked the Uruguayan for diving. Suarez protested claiming that he had been pushed by a Las Palmas defender. 'You're all like that,' Suarez told the referee as his protests were dismissed.
