Atletico Madrid on the other hand are going to an extremely difficult phase. They are 6th in the league table at the moment, when so many expected them as title contenders. Their defense was one of the strongest in the league in past two seasons. But this term, they had struggled to keep clean sheets.

Las Palmas defeated second division side Huesca in the round of 32 by a 4-3 aggregate. The first leg clash away from home was a 2-2 draw, but they edged a 2-1 win at home in the second leg to guarantee a place in the round of 16.

Atletico Madrid has an easy opposition in CD Guijuelo, a team that plays their trade in the third tier. It was a comfortable ride for the team from Madrid as reflected in the final aggregate score of 10-1.

Las Palmas vs Atletico Madrid: Prediction

Is Atletico Madrid going through a mini crisis? They had lost in 2 of their last 4 matches before the Christmas break, both coming away from home. This is very unlikely for a team like Atletico who has been equally strong in both home and away matches last season. Las Palmas are no pushovers and are unbeaten at home this season. However, it is very unlikely that they pick a win here. But we believe they have got what it takes to hold Atletico to a draw here.
