Eibar vs Atletico Madrid Match Preview

Atletico Madrid have seen a Super Cup heartbreak in an exciting Final against Real Madrid, where the city rivals lifted the trophy after a goalless draw and a penalty shootout. They now travel to Eibar looking to bounce quickly and keep up with La Liga’s top 2, now sitting five points behind and boasting a solid streak of recent.

Indeed, Atleti only saw a five-match winning streak across competitions ended last week, as they made their way to the Champions League knockout stages with a 2-0 win over Lokomotiv, bagged nine points in three league outings since mid-December, and beat Barcelona (2-3) in Super Cup semi-finals.

Diego Simeone will now hope to build on such performances and snatching points at struggling rivals will be crucial. However, Eibar have picked it up lately and only saw Valencia (1-0) snatch points in their last five outings – with a draw at Bilbao (0-0) as well as wins over Logrones (0-5), Cacereno (1-2), and Granada (3-0) earned along the way.

Los Armeros have struggled for consistency through most part of the campaign and this wasn’t the case just against the big guns, which will be worrying. They only ended a streak of three home losses as they beat Granada in December and Mendilibar’s men will need to show more here.

We do expect an exciting challenge but we don’t feel they can hold off Atletico Madrid at this point and we’ll now stick with the visitors to snatch the points, going for an Away win at 5/6 with bet365 and hoping they can regain confidence quickly.

Still, we’ve seen Atleti struggling to really keep it together at the back the way we were used to on the road. The clean sheet kept against Real mainly thanks to Jan Oblak was only their second in last nine games away from home, which has us sticking our necks out for goals once again with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 6/4 with William Hill.
