Barcelona Football Club has expressed heartfelt condolences to the families of victims of the terror attack that hit the city.

A huge security operation will be put in place for Sunday's match against Real Betis (kick off 1815GMT) at the club's 99,000 capacity Camp Nou after the attacks this week killed 14 people and left hundreds injured.

"We have players to do that and we'll see if we can get him back soon".

The players will also wear black armbands, while a minute's silence will be held - a tribute to be made at all matches across Spain.

There will be a minute's silence before kick-off, while players will wear black armbands as a sign of respect - armbands will also be worn by other Barcelona players and competitors across all of the club's sporting divisions this weekend.

A manhunt continues for a Moroccan national suspected to have been the driver of a van that ploughed into crowds on Barcelona's Las Ramblas, killing 13, on Thursday.

"This jersey will also carry the hashtag #TotsSomBarcelona (in Catalan) on the front".

The league's biggest stars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were among those to lead tributes to the victims as the shocking events of Friday unfolded. "All our thoughts are with the victims, their families and with the people of Barcelona".

'We are not going to yield, we are far greater and we want to live in a world of peace, without hatred and where respect and tolerance are the foundations of harmony'.

"We would like to show our solidarity with the victims and their families in these hard times", he said.

Catalonia's regional police force confirmed there would be additional officers on duty outside both the Camp Nou and for Girona's meeting with Atletico Madrid on Saturday, just over 50 miles northeast of Barcelona.
