Atletico Madrid welcome Las Palmas to Wanda Metropolitano for their Spanish La Liga clash on Sunday.

After Sevilla ended Los Rojiblancos’ campaign in the Copa del Rey, beating them home and away, the Red-and-Whites will be hoping to pacify their supporters with a victory over the second-bottom side.

They boast of a near-perfect record over their visitors having won seven of their last eight meetings.

Though they were held by Girona in their previous top-flight encounter, Diego Simeone’s men will still be expected to cruise past Paco Jemez’s side without much difficulty at the odds of (1.18) with Bet9ja.

A share of spoils at the end of full duration is available at the price of (7.20).

On the other hand, Las Palmas ended their seven-game winless run with a victory over Valencia in their last match. They are in the relegation zone and will be aiming for a possible win here which could enhance their chances of avoiding the drop zone at the end of the season. However, to achieve this target, they will have to defy the odds of (16.00).

Atleti scored ten goals in their previous two meetings with La Union Deportiva and conceded just once. The bookies have quoted (1.50) for more than three goals to surface in the duel.

The Red-and-Whites scored without conceding in six of their last eight outings with their visitors and the betting firm has offered (1.70) for them to win to nil.

Atletico have opened the scoring in all their meetings with Las Palmas and they will be expected to do likewise here at the price of (1.17) with Bet9ja.
