La Rosaleda braced for visit of on-song Griezmann

Malaga are aiming to stop the rot when they play host to an in-form Atletico Madrid side spearheaded by the flying Frenchman.

Team News:

- Malaga CF: Zdravko Kuzmanovic, Recio, Bakary Kone and Sandro (all injured); Charles (suspended)

- Atletico Madrid: Augusto Fernandez, Sime Vrsaljko, Tiago Mendes, Nico Gaitan, Kevin Gameiro and Miguel Angel Moya (all injured); Yannick Carrasco (suspended) 

Match Facts:

Malaga (15th, 27 pts):

- The Andalusians are enduring a sticky spell, having gone winless in their last five fixtures. The last time they ran out victorious was when they defeated UD Las Palmas 2-1 in late February.

- "We're looking forward to tomorrow's match," said Malaga manager Michel at the pre-game press conference. Incidentally, Atletico ran out 4-2 winners in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.

Atletico Madrid (4th, 55 pts):

- It is a different story at Atleti, who seem to have rediscovered their mojo in recent weeks. Indeed, last time round, Diego Simeone's men comfortably dispatched Sevilla FC, one of their rivals for a Champions League place, 3-1.

- It is no coincidence that the Rojiblancos' return to top form has coincided with Antoine Griezmann shining again. The Frenchman has been instrumental in his side's three-game winning streak in LaLiga Santander, scoring four of their seven goals in those victories.
