However, they are unbeaten in their last four league games with two wins and two draws.

They are coming on the back of an emphatic 4-1 win against Mallorca, the side which stunned Atletico Madrid a few weeks ago. 39-year-old Jorge Molina stole the show with a stellar hat-trick.

The veteran Spanish striker, who has racked up 6 goals and an assist in La Liga this season, will look to create a big impact against the defending champions on Wednesday.

Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid’s morale has taken a hit after suffering three consecutive defeats in La Liga, the first time they did so under Diego Simeone.

The setbacks have seen them regress to fifth place in the table and the shocking thing is Rayo Vallecano are above them at fourth place.

Los Rojiblancos would look to leave their troubles behind and get back to the winning ways when they visit Granada on Wednesday.

Luis Suarez’s form and fitness is quite worrying as he hasn’t managed a goal in the last seven games for Atletico – his longest drought since moving to Spain from Liverpool.

Antoine Griezmann and Marcos Llorente are sidelined for the clash due to injuries, however Joao Felix is expected to be the key player in the attack.

Possible Atletico Madrid line-up

Jan Oblak; Felipe, Kondogbia, Mario Hermoso; Kieran Trippier, Rodrigo De Paul, Koke, Thomas Lemar, Yannick Carrasco; Luis Suarez, Joao Felix

Injured: Marcos Llorente, Antoine Griezmann, Sime Vrsaljko, Stefan Savic

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None
