Mandzukic scored his sixth goal of the season during Atletico Madrid's 2-0 win over Elche on Saturday.

Mandzukic seems to be coming into his own in Madrid, as he now had 16 goals in 22 appearances, including four in his last three games. Up next is a vital Champions League match Tuesday at Juventus, with the top spot in the group up for grabs.

Mandzukic took a season-high seven shots and scored his second goal of the season during Atletico's 3-1 loss at Valencia on Saturday.

Mandzukic hasn't been as prolific a goal-scorer as he was with Bayern Munich, though he appears to be getting comfortable in his new surroundings. If he can continue his high shot-totals, he could break through in upcoming matches against Espanyol and Getafe after the international break.

Mandzukic had surgery Friday to repair a broken nose suffered in Tuesday's Champions League loss to Olympiacos on Tuesday and he is expected to miss at least 10 days, the BBC reports.

Mandzukic remained in the game after taking an elbow to the face, and he will be required to wear a protective mask. "Normally he would be available to play in 15 days but with a mask he could do so in 10," Atletico Madrid doctor Pedro Luis Llopis said. If he can return within that time frame, he should be eligible to play Juventus on Oct. 1.

Mandzukic scored in the 38th minute of Atletico Madrid's 3-2 Champions League loss at Olympiacos on Tuesday.

Mandzukic is coming off an 18-goal season for Bayern Munich, and while he will have to work harder for his goals this season, he is still expected to easily reach double-digit goals. He now has two goals in his last three club matches in all competitions and he'll look to keep it going Saturday against Celta Vigo.

Mandzukic signed a four-year contract with Atletico Madrid on Thursday after transferring from Bayern Munich, the club's official web site reports.

After Robert Lewandowski joined Bayern Munich from Borussia Dortmund on a free contract, Mandzukic became excess talent up front. He is a dynamic scorer and should be a strong part of the Atletico attack in place of Diego Costa, who was sold to Chelsea FC.

Mandzukic is believed to be close to joining La Liga side Atletico Madrid, the BBC reports.

Mandzukic is under contract until 2016, but with Robert Lewandowski joining Bayern Munich from Borussia Dortmund, Mandzukic looks to be a spare part now. He's a very solid goal-scorer, having found the back of the net 33 times in 54 Bundesliga games with Bayern, and he should fit in nicely at Atletico in place of Diego Costa, who is transferring to Chelsea FC.
