Las Palmas will face a tough challenge as they take on Atletico Madrid in their upcoming La Liga match at Estadio Gran Canaria.
Currently sitting in 10th place, Las Palmas has shown signs of improvement in recent matches, winning four out of their last five games in all competitions.
In La Liga, Las Palmas has secured victories in three of their last four matches, including a convincing 3-0 win over Manacor in the Copa del Rey.
Despite their offensive struggles with only eight goals scored in 11 games, their defense has been strong, conceding just 10 goals, which is the third-best record in the league.
On the other hand, Atletico Madrid has been quietly impressive this season, winning six consecutive league matches.
They currently sit in third place, just three points behind leaders Real Madrid with a game in hand.
After a disappointing 3-0 loss to Valencia in September, Atletico bounced back and has been dominant ever since.
In the Champions League, Atletico is in a good position, sitting second in their group with five points from three matches.
With a strong title race in progress, Atletico will be aiming for three more wins in their upcoming matches against Las Palmas, Celtic, and Villarreal before the international break in November.
Las Palmas will be missing Sandro Ramirez and Fabio Gonzalez due to injury, while Jonathan Viera remains uncertain due to personal reasons.
However, key players like Marc Cardona, Saul Coco, Alvaro Valles, and Marvin Park are expected to return to the starting lineup.
Atletico Madrid will be without Samuel Lino, Memphis Depay, Thomas Lemar, Vitolo, and Reinildo due to various injuries.
Rodrigo Riquelme, who impressed in the previous match, is likely to start again, alongside Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann in the attack.
Possible starting lineups:
- Suarez, Coco, Marmol, S Cardona;
- Park, Munoz, Perrone, Rodriguez, El Haddadi;
- M Cardona
- Savic, Witsel, Hermoso;
- Molina, De Paul, Koke, Saul, Riquelme;
- Griezmann, Morata
With both teams displaying strong defensive performances this season, it is expected to be a low-scoring match.
Atletico Madrid, however, has the edge in terms of form and quality and is likely to come out on top with a narrow 1-0 victory.
