      Las Palmas vs Atletico Madrid Predictions

       

      Atletico are enjoying another very strong season but were dealt a big blow in midweek when they were handed a 12 month transfer ban which if their appeal fails will see them unable to buy players in the summer or next January.

      On the pitch though things are still going well and they come into the weekend on top of the table and 2 points clear of Barcelona after an excellent 2-0 win at Celta Vigo last weekend when Yannick Ferreira Carrasco and Antoine Griezmann were on target. The Frenchman added another couple in midweek as Atletico beat Rayo Vallecano 3-0 to make it just 1 defeat in 23 matches in all competitions.

      This will be another tough test though against a Las Palmas side that are in really good form. The Canary Islanders are unbeaten in 5 matches and won an entertaining Copa del Rey tie with Eibar 6-4 on aggregate in midweek. They’ve won 4 of their last 5 matches at home and are now 3 points clear of the relegation zone.

      This though is a real step up in class on their recent opponents and it’s one thing to score plenty of goals against the sides around them in the league and another to do it against an Atleti side that have by far the best defensive record in La Liga having let in just 8 goals in 19 matches in the league this season.

      Atleti have won to nil on an astonishing 17 occasions already this season, over 50% of their matches. Therefore odds of 5/4 for them to repeat the trick here look really good value.

      Ominously for their rivals, they’ve looked quite lively at the other end in recent weeks too and at 5/1 they could be worth a punt for a 9th 2-0 win of the season.
