La Liga, Atletico Madrid Vs. Las Palmas: Preview, Prediction, Possible Lineups, Betting Tips, And Live Stream
Looking to get back to winning ways in La Liga once again, Atletico Madrid is set to lock horns with 10th placed Las Palmas on Saturday.
Atletico Madrid was comprehensively battered by Villarreal in last weekend’s La Liga match with 3-0 scoreline. They currently reside in sixth place in the La Liga table with 25 points, 12 points behind league leaders Real Madrid.
Diego Simeone’s men look completely out of form at the moment as they haven’t won their last two league matches. It is fair to say that their Champions League spot for next season is now at risk.
Las Palmas, meanwhile, came into this match with two successive draws in La Liga. With 15 games played so far, they are in the 10th place in the league with 21 points.
Atletico Madrid has been dominant over Las Palmas when it comes to previous results. The home side has won all four matches played against the Yellows.
