Sports Mole previews tomorrow's La Liga game between Malaga and Atletico Madrid.

Two of La Liga's Champions League hopefuls face each other on Sunday evening as Malaga host Atletico Madrid.

Both sides have realistic aims of finishing in the top four and both go into this game in pretty good form.

Second-place Atletico could be much closer to league leaders Barcelona were it not for their away form, and as it stands are only a point ahead of city rivals Real Madrid.

Malaga, meanwhile, could open up a three-point gap between themselves and Valencia in fifth following a 2-2 draw in the Valencia derby this evening.

The away side will be hoping that striker Radamel Falcao can keep up his goalscoring form. The Colombian striker has scored five in their last six games in all competitions.

Malaga have been reliant on the goals of Javier Saviola and Isco in their recent wins.

Both teams will miss players through suspension after red cards last week. Atletico will be without their skipper Gabi, while Malaga's Ignacio Camacho is suspended.
