In their first game of the new year, Barcelona is scheduled to play Las Palmas.

The arrival of Vitor Roque has instilled excitement among the Barça players as they want to establish a strong winning momentum.

But, one Barcelona player might need to exercise caution before this match against Las Palmas because he could receive a suspension for it.

Joao Cancelo could be suspended.
I’m talking about Joao Cancelo, the footballer. The Portuguese international has four bookings in La Liga this season going into the Las Palmas match.

This implies that he will miss the following league match against Real Betis if he receives a yellow card against Las Palmas.

Cancelo, who frequently alternates between the left and right back positions for Barcelona, has been a vital outlet in the team’s defensive line, therefore the coach Xavi Hernandez cannot afford that.
Cancelo is an essential component of Barcelona’s build-up because of his mobility, tactical skill, and understanding of positional play.

In addition, Barça’s choices at full-back are limited, particularly in light of Marcos Alonso’s recent surgery.

As a result, Cancelo needs to avoid getting booked at all costs if Barcelona wants him to play against Real Betis the following week.

Positively, though, Cancelo is the only Barcelona player who faces a suspension before the match against Las Palmas.

Compared to Ronald Araujo and Robert Lewandowski, who have each received three yellow cards thus far this season, Gavi and Frenkie de Jong have already received five.
