Eibar vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

Eibar were forced to return to losing ways in their last clash in the La Liga after Valencia edged past them on the road with a narrow 1-0 scorecard. Despite recording more shots on target than their foes in that latter matchup, the hosts failed to capitalize on their efforts and eventually made the trip back home empty-handed.

The home side are now hovering dangerously close to the relegation zone with no more than nineteen points to their name.

On the other hand, Atletico Madrid had their hearts broken by Real Madrid earlier this week in the Super Cup. Nevertheless, the visitors are still unbeaten in their past five games in all competitions.

It is also worth mentioning that the guests have been tasting nothing but success in their previous three fixtures in the La Liga. Their last matchup, which was at home, saw them take down Levante with a 2-1 scorecard.

Furthermore, the guests are one among the top five away sides in the cluster at the moment. Impressively, they have stumbled just once on the road so far. Taking into account that Eibar have also admitted defeat in five of their last six meetings with this foe here, the hosts are left with no reason to have their hopes up in this one.

Additionally, Atletico Madrid’s backline have looked rock solid, even in their outings. They have conceded just six goals on the road this season. Which is the joint least by any side as of now on the table.

Meanwhile, Eibar have lost without so much as a consolation goal to their name in three of their past four fixtures here. Considering that four of their previous five h2h meetings here have also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, expect goals to be hard to come by this weekend as well.
