Seeing Barcelona play in front of 99,000 empty seats at the Nou Camp has to be the strangest sight of the season.

This weekend's Catalunya referendum clashed with Blaugrana's home fixture with Las Palmas and prompted Barcelona to request the game's postponement.

However, after a thoroughly confusing hour and a half that left supporters in the dark, Barcelona eventually agreed to go ahead with the game. The club were threatened with a series of penalties of which a 3-0 win being awarded to the visitors was the lightest.

Unfortunately, for the tens of thousands of supporters, the decision was taken to play the fixture behind closed doors with some fans' groups threatening to invade the pitch.

Almost all the journalists and media present reported the unique experience of being able to hear the players speak and opportunities/goals being met with silence.

Nevertheless, the game had no shortage of entertainment with Lionel Messi coming incredibly close from two free-kicks, both of which being brilliantly saved by Leandro Chichizola.

Las Palmas had a few opportunities of their own too, hitting the post before the break.

Sergio Busquets eventually broke the deadlock in the 49th minute, heading home from a corner for his first Barcelona goal since November 2014.

Minutes later, Luis Suarez - who has struggled for goals this season - had the chance to double Blaugrana's lead.

The Uruguayan dribbled clean through on goal, attempted to round the 'keeper and went to ground despite Chichizola making no contact at all. Check out the incident below (skip to 9:00):

Been speaking to Dele Alli recently, Luis?

Suarez has something of a reputation for controversy and this simply proves his latest shenanigan. Thankfully, the referee wasn't fooled by his simulation, dually booking the ex-Liverpool man.

And fans on Twitter certainly weren't impressed. Take a look below:

Some rather over the top tweets but it demonstrates just how disappointed Barcelona fans have been with Suarez all season.

You know it's been a bad start when Marouane Fellaini has double your goals tally.
