Las Palmas welcome Atletico Madrid at Estadio Gran Canaria on Friday evening. The hosts occupy 10th place with 14 points from their opening 11 matches this season. Coach Garcia PimientaI is doing an excellent job and I believe the fans are satisfy, particularly because their team are eight points away from the relegation zone. The actual form is very good, they have three victories on the previous four La Liga matches. Last weekend they secured a 2:1 victory away at Almeria. Scoring seems to be a problem for Las Palmas as they found the back of the net only eight times, which is the worst attacking record in the division. On contrary, they are solid defensively, conceding just 10 times, which is the third-best record behind Real Madrid (8) and Atletico (9). PimientaI will again be without the services of Sandro Ramirez and Fabio Gonzalez through injury, while Jonathan Viera is rated as doubtful due to a personal issue. Most of his key players were rested during the midweek's Copa del Rey victory over Manacor, meaning they are fresh for this match.

Atletico Madrid are third on the table with 25 points, three less than co-leaders Real and Girona. They have won eight, drawn one and lost one of their 10 league games this season. The actual form could be rated as very good, the Rojiblancos have won their last six matches in La Liga, beating Real Madrid, Osasuna, Cadiz, Real Sociedad, Celta Vigo and Alaves. Atletico are also playing well in the Champions League, picking up five points from three matches. The next period could be crucial for their ambitions. Atletico will be looking for maximum points against Las Palmas, Celtic and Villarreal before the November international break kicks in. Simeone also has some injury issues as Samuel Lino, Memphis Depay, Thomas Lemar, Vitolo and Reinildo remain unavailable for selection. Rodrigo Riquelme impressed against Alaves and deserved another start after scoring a goal. Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann will continue their attacking partnership. The duo looks unstoppable at the moment.

Las Palmas vs Atletico Madrid Prediction:

Las Palmas are in the middle of the table, which is a big surprise considering they are newcomers in Primera. However, they can't play at highest level for a longer time. Atletico are in excellent form and they are in series of six victories in La Liga. I believe Las Palmas will be their seventh victims. The quality is on their side, no doubt about that. The tradition too - Las Palmas have suffered six defeats on the last six league fixtures against Atletico.
