Eibar vs Atletico Madrid predictions, H2H and match preview for this Saturday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as Diego Simeone’s men target a 4th straight league win.
Eibar vs Atletico Madrid Preview
Atletico Madrid return from an eventful week in Saudi Arabia to the rather different surroundings of Eibar this weekend. Diego Simeone would have taken some positives from his side’s ability to beat Barcelona and take Real Madrid to penalties in the Supercopa but he will know that his team are still some way off the pace in La Liga.
Eibar will be determined to make this as difficult as possible for their visitors here. The Basques look like they are in something of a relegation scrap but every time it appears as though they are about to sink deeper into danger, they pick up a result. They defeated Granada 3-0 in their most recent home game to end a 5 game winless streak in La Liga.
It’s 3 straight wins in La Liga for Atleti meanwhile. Only one other side has managed that but their away record is going to have to improve over the second half of the campaign if they are going to stay in serious title contention. Atleti have won just 3 of their 9 road games so far this season, drawing 5.
Eibar are sweating over the fitness of a number of players heading into this with the likes of Ivan Ramis, Kike Garcia and Gonzalo Escalante carrying knocks. Paulo Oliveira is also out through suspension so they may need to reshuffle their defence. Koke is Atleti’s main absentee which could see Vitolo and Angel Correa operate in the wide areas.
Eibar vs Atletico Madrid Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-0 Atleti
Atleti have a terrific record here, winning on their last 5 league visits to Eibar. They have started to look a bit more like their old selves in recent weeks and a hard-fought win at Betis in their most recent away league game should help give them greater belief on their travels. They may have just enough to edge out Eibar here.
