Following a 1-0 defeat to Rayo Vallecano, La Union Deportiva swiftly bounced back with a 2-1 away win against Almeria, boosting their confidence ahead of Atletico’s visit.

Guinea forward Sory Kaba, who made a decisive impact as a substitute in the last match, is eager for a starting role, while Jonathan Viera and Sandro Ramirez are expected to miss the game due to injuries.

On the other side, Diego Simeone’s squad secured a routine 2-1 victory over Alaves on Matchday 11, keeping them in the title race.

Atletico Madrid is currently on a six-game winning streak in the Primera Division. Although Las Palmas is a tough opponent at home, the odds seem to favor Alvaro Morata and his teammates. However, Memphis Depay’s availability is uncertain, and Thomas Lemar is still in the recovery phase.

Team News:

Las Palmas will once again have to do without Sandro Ramirez and Fabio Gonzalez due to injuries, and Jonathan Viera remains uncertain due to a personal matter.

As expected, there were substantial changes in the Copa del Rey on Tuesday, but the team’s key players, including Marc Cardona, Saul Coco, Alvaro Valles, and Marvin Park, will return to the lineup for this encounter.

Munir El Haddadi is likely to continue in a wide role for the home side, and the starting lineup may remain unchanged from the one that faced Almeria in the previous league match.

As for Atletico, Samuel Lino, Memphis Depay, Thomas Lemar, Vitolo, and Reinildo are still unavailable for selection.

Rodrigo Riquelme impressed as a starter against Alaves, even finding the back of the net, and he is expected to maintain his position on the wing on Friday night.

There are unlikely to be any major surprises in the Atletico XI, with Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann set to lead the attack. Marcos Llorente is pushing for a starting spot, and Pablo Barrios provides another midfield option, but Saul Niguez is expected to retain his place in the lineup.
