Las Palmas vs Atletico Madrid
Last week things looked kind of hot for Atletico against Girona but luckily they managed to gain a point. However, things do not look good for the team now that Antoine Griezmann is suspended.
Last weekend, Diego Simeone did not heed the defensive organisation and quality as expected conceding twice against Girona. Last season, Atletico began on the wrong foot and the trend seems to be continuing.
Being generally an attacking side, Las Palmas will certainly exploit those surprising defensive weaknesses. Despite Quique Setien departure, the team still has creative players that are forward oriented. 61 percent of their league matches yielded scores at both ends during the last season.
Head to head
Including the 5-0 win in April, Atletico has won 5 of their last 6 meetings with Las Palmas. Atleti have won 4 away games against last Plamas.
