Eibar vs Atletico Madrid Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Eibar picked up from where they left off in 2017, as the team beat Las Palmas 2-1 at the Gran Canaria. Despite conceding through a first-half penalty from Jonathan Viera, Eibar displayed plenty of resilience to come back in the final 20 minutes of the game – through goals from Fabian Orellana and Sergi Enrich. Atletico Madrid had a positive start to 2018 La Liga matches after a 2-0 win over Getafe. Angel Correa provided a strong opening for Diego Simeone’s team with an 18th minute goal, but the highlight of the game was provided by Diego Costa. The 28-year-old scored in his first La Liga match since returning from Chelsea in a £60 million deal and earned himself a second yellow card in the resulting celebrations.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Any team would fear to take on Eibar in this kind of form, although Jose Luis Mendilibar’s team came close to dropping points against relegation threatened Las Palmas in the previous league game. Atletico have a strong record against Eibar after winning five out of the last six meetings against this opponent. In fact, Eibar’s last win over Atletico was in the second division back in 2001. Despite home advantage, I would go with a win for Atletico.

The Eibar outfit have been on a roll in terms of scoring goals. Aside from being fresh due to the lack of Copa del Rey action, Eibar also have home advantage. Despite Atletico keeping three consecutive clean sheets, I would expect Eibar to breach the defence at least once. I see tremendous value in backing both teams to score.

Atletico Madrid win – 19/20

Eibar Preview

Eibar’s form shows no signs of slowing down with the team dropping only two points over the last five league matches. It was extremely important for Eibar to come up with the late goals against Las Palmas, as dropping points in this game would have robbed the team of momentum. Eibar have now picked up as many wins (4) in the last four matches as they have done in the previous 13. Such has been their incredible run that Jose Luis Mendilibar’s team have taken more points than Barcelona in the last six league games. Charles is the Eibar top scorer so far with six goals, while Joan Jordan is not far behind with five goals.

Eibar Team News

Pedro Leon (knee), Fran Rico (knee), Ander (muscle), and Yoel Rodriguez (cruciate ligament) are missing from action for Eibar, while Anaitz Zabala Arbilla is suspended.

Atletico Madrid Preview

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone will be delighted with the instant impact from Diego Costa, although the striker’s lack of discipline has also been highlighted in his two appearances for the club since the £60 million move from Chelsea. Costa presents a major attacking threat, but he will be unavailable for this game due to suspension. Atletico need all their best players on top form, as the club needs to be fully prepared to stay in touch with Barcelona. Atletico are nine points behind Barcelona even after just 18 matches. Antoine Griezmann and Angel Correa have scored five goals each.

Atletico Madrid Team News

Diego Costa, Stefan Savic, and Gabi Fernandez are the players unavailable due to suspension. Filipe Luis (thigh) and Nicolas Gaitan (discomfort) are missing due to injuries.
