Atletico have managed to cling onto decent form despite facing tough opposition recently, but can't afford to be complacent against a Rayo side who have managed to scrape two wins from their last three outings.Away wins against Almeria, Getafe and Real Sociedad since December will give Jemez's men some hope, but visits to the Mestalla and the Bernabeu ended in respective 3-0 and 5-1 defeats. As is well documented, this weekend's hosts' lengthy unbeaten home run came to an end with defeat to Villarreal, but Los Colchoneros have to be fancied to win this one despite the absence of inspirational defensive leader Diego Godin. With Atleti's front three options firing, Rayo will need to be defensively disciplined.
