Eibar vs Atletico de Madrid – La Liga : Eibar’s team is a very interesting team in La Liga and they are currently in 7th place, only 1 point behind the European spots.
This is a team that I expected to be close to the middle of the league table, but they are surpassing the expectations and making a stronger campaign than expected.
Eibar don’t intend to fight for any European spot, even because they didn’t prepare for that before the start of the season.
They are a fierce team, that plays compact and with a good attitude on the pitch. They haven’t lost for some time and at home are strong. They have won the last 3 home matches.
Not even Valencia was able to avoid defeat at their stadium. They are coming off 3 consecutive losses and are clearly in a good moment of form.
Atlético de Madrid is an interesting team. Their objective on the current season if fighting for the title, but they are somewhat distant to Barcelona.
Not only because the Catalans are very united and consistent, but also because the Colchoneros have had some slip-ups here and there that have costed them on this title race. Atlético, on their last 5 matches, won 4 and lost 1.
The loss was precisely on the last away match they played, at Espanyol and they lost with a goal conceded in the 90th minute.
The Colchoneros are coming off a 2-0 win over Getafe in the Madrid derby, on a match where Diego Costa scored and was sent-off, which means he will miss this match. Vietto also left the team and is one less attacking option.
Eibar vs Atletico de Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Atlético de Madrid has been playing good football and knowing that they are 9 points away from Barcelona, they can’t ease up no matter what.
They need to get the 3 points from Eibar and expect a possible slip-up from Barcelona that has a complicated match this round, against Real Sociedad.
Atlético de Madrid looks to be stronger with Diego Costa, something that was complimented by everyone.
He won’t be available for this match, but at least he gave Atlético some confidence and the team has been playing good football again.
It won’t be an easy trip, but I believe that Atlético de Madrid will be able to leave this stadium with the 3 points and gain new encouragement on this title fight.
