Atletico Madrid vs Eibar
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 1 September 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Atletico Madrid have got off to a winning start in the new campaign and there can be no surprises there. The Red and Whites have collected maximum points from their clashes with Getafe at home and Leganes on the road, both of which came with a 1-0 scoreline.
Eibar have been forced away from the comforts of their home in their matches so far, and are currently without a win in either of those games as well. The visitors were at the losing end in their opener against Mallorca, while their most recent fixture saw them share the spoils with Osasuna in a frustrating stalemate.
The runners up of last season are showing no signs of slowing down and with their newest recruiters very much in sync with the rest of the squad, Eibar have absolutely no chance of coming away with any points this weekend.

Atletico Madrid vs Eibar Prediction
Diego Simeone’s men are among the front runners to challenge the reigning champions for the title and have already reiterated their intents with back to back victories. Furthermore, Atletico are unbeaten in their last eight LaLiga games on home soil and have scored twelve goals in the process while conceding as few as three.
Their counterparts have been poor in their outings as it, and have picked a win just once in their last five trips on the road in the league. It also needs saying that Eibar’s previous visits to this venue have not ended well for the visitors who have admitted defeat in five of their last eight trips here.
Given the kind of form that the home team are on at the moment, especially in their own back yard, the struggling Eibar will need nothing short of a miracle to get the better of Atletico on Sunday.
Two out of the last three goals that the hosts have scored at home have coming in the opening forty-five minutes of the game. Considering that Atletico have found the back of the net before the restart in two of their last four h2h meetings with this foe as well, you can certainly count on Atletico to slot the ball home before the teams head for the break, in this one.
