Atletico Madrid vs Eibar
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 20 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Wanda Metropolitano, Madrid.
Atletico Madrid showed class on Wednesday when they trashed Olympique Marseille 3-0 in the final to win the Europa League silverware. It was an outstanding display from Antoine Griezmann who bagged a brace, while Gabi notched a goal and an assist. This duo, as well as most of first squad players, could be given a well-deserved rest before the final day of La Liga and the match against Eibar at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.
The game has no great importance whatsoever for any of the sides. The Gunsmiths are looking to save the top-half position, though, as they stand ninth at the moment being just two points above Girona in 11th. Jose Mendilibar will thus likely use the best possible lineup, while it will be interesting to see if Antoine Griezmann will lead the line for the Mattressers given this might likely be his farewell from the local crowd as the Frenchman is almost certainly going to become Barcelona’s player as of July.

Atletico Madrid vs Eibar: Prediction
Looking at the head to head trend, we fancy the 1.61 odds offered for the home win even though Atleti will have no imperative whatsoever here. We don’t expect it to produce a goal fest knowing that Eibar have been fairly tough to break down lately.
Atleti conceded just once on last five occasions in all competitions and they kept a clean sheet in four of last five H2H encounters with Eibar. This is why we’ll try with the hosts to keep things tight at the back here at the odds of 2.20, regardless of the squad Cholo Simeone lines up on the day.
