Molina has made 14 appearances in all competitions for Atletico this campaign, scoring two goals, providing three assists and totalling 1,041 minutes of football so far.
Diego Simeone has used Molina in both a right back, and right midfield position this season, showing his versatility for the team.
Atletico Madrid currently sit 3rd in La Liga on 31 points, having won 10, drawn one and lost two of their opening 13 games.
They sit four points behind 2nd placed Girona, and 1st placed Real Madrid who both have 35 points. However both of those sides have played 14 games, therefore if Atletico win their game in hand they will only be one point off of top spot.
