Our football match prediction:
Las Palmas play host to Atletico Madrid at their Estadio de Gran Canaria on Matchday 35. Los Amarillos sit in the middle of the table ahead of the visit of Atletico Madrid and they have little to play for in the season finale, but no doubt, they will give 100% to make life difficult for the star-studded capital club. It is well known that Las Palmas are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that Kevin-Prince Boateng and Co. will score in Saturday’s football match. Atletico Madrid suffered a shocking 1-0 loss to Villarreal in front of home fans in midweek and they are desperate to make amends for the defeat. Diego Simeone’s men aim to secure automatic qualification for the Champions League and there is every chance the visitors will find the net against Las Palmas. Antoine Griezmann failed to impress against Villarreal, but the opposition defenders should have him at bay.

Highlighted Team (Atletico Madrid):
Atletico Madrid are a Spanish team that plays in Primera Division (La Liga). Los Rojiblancos or los Colchoneros play their home matches at Estadio Vicente Calderon, which holds up to 54,960 spectators. Atletico Madrid have won 10 La Liga titles, but they have yet to lift the European Cup (Champions League) trophy. Los Rojblancos have won 10 Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) trophies and it has to be noted that they defeated their bitter local rivals Real Madrid in the 2012/2013 Spanish Cup final. The rivalry between the two capital clubs is pretty big and El Madrileno is regarded as one of the most exciting derbies in the world football. Atletico Madrid played two Champions League finals under Diego Simeone, but they failed to beat Real Madrid in the title games (2013/2014 and 2015/2016). However, the Argentine tactician helped Atletico Madrid win the La Liga trophy in 2014 and, no doubt, he is one of the most successful coaches in the history of the capital club.
