Preview: Atletico Madrid vs. Real Zaragoza

Sports Mole previews Sunday's match between Atletico Madrid and Real Zaragoza as Madrid look to stay in touch with Barcelona at the top of the table.

Atletico Madrid host Real Zaragoza on Sunday looking to keep the pressure on La Liga leaders Barcelona.

Madrid go into the match having won just one of their last three league games, a run which has seen them fall 11 points behind Barcelona.

Zaragoza, meanwhile, have been plagued by inconsistency in their last few league matches, winning two, losing two and drawing one of their last five games.

Madrid will have a fully-fit squad to choose from, but Zaragoza are missing Christian Romaric, Adam Pinter and Ivan Obradovic through injury, while Movilla and Alvaro Gonzalez are suspended for the match.

Zaragoza have won just once in the last six meetings between the two sides, but that came in the most recent match back in March of last year.
