After being dumped out of Europa League during mid week Atletico take on Malaga at La Rosaleda Stadium at 7 pm on Sunday 1900 CET. Now the focus for the team should be to get to the CL spot at the earliest and finish off in the top 4 by the end of season.

The following 18 players have been called up for the match:

GOALKEEPERS
13 De Gea
27 Joel

DEFENDERS
2 Valera
14 Filipe Luis
15 Godín
17 Ujfalusi
18 Domínguez
21 Perea

MIDFIELDERS
4 Mario Suárez
5 Tiago
8 Raúl García
11 Fran Mérida
12 Assunçao
19 Reyes
20 Simão

STRIKERS
7 Forlán
10 Agüero
22 Diego Costa

Antonio Lopez has been dropped from the selection and Ujfalusi comes back and expected to be slotting into the right back position. Reyes was rested during the mid week match as a precaution and he should be back. This might be the last match for Simao in Atleti colors as he is expected to sign up for Besiktas in the next few days. He will be captaining the side in the absence of Antonio Lopez.

Malaga sits in the last relegation position. The appointment of Pelligrini has not brought in the expected consistent performances but they are still getting the results in their home matches winning 1-0 and 4-1 against Levante & Racing respectively. In their last match day they were thumped 4-1 by Hercules in an away match. Atleti have displayed inept performance after their mid week performances and the chill conditions during their match against Leverkusen will not be that much helpful. This is going to be a tricky match but need to get a good result to forget the Europe disappointment.

And what happened to Godin? Now his turn to be on the out of favour list of Quique?

3-0 Tiago again. Suddenly Simao started putting in good crosses on set-pieces.

Thankfully Malaga is not troubling us too much. If they had played with more intensity Atleti would have stumbled.

This is ridicolous..Simão assisting on set-pieces, damn it, why couldn't he do this for the years he's been here? 0-3. Tiago is the special goal scorer :D

Valera comes in for Raul Garcia. Don't understand this sub..maybe should have got in Camacho instead.

Ufo was not bad but nothing spectacular. Malaga was quite poor and that helped Atleti a lot.
