Eibar vs Atletico Madrid Prediction & Match Preview

Eibar vs Atletico Madrid
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 20th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.15 UK/ 16.15 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).

Atleti has been booted out of all their competitions, except for the league. Even there, they don’t stand much chance of lifting the trophy. With six match-days remaining, all Barcelona needs to do is post nine more points on the board, and no matter what happens, they would be crowned champions.

But still, the fighting spirit of Diego Simeone and his men would not let the impending champions to walk freely to the title. They will try all they can to make the journey as hard as possible.

Eibar is six points below from the last European spot and has a half-decent chance to make it. But they have to be on their finest to make it within the next six match-days. Considering they are taking on Atleti this weekend, that plan might have to be postponed another week.

Eibar vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

All that remains for Atleti is the league, and they will show their spirit on the pitch until Barca mathematically seals the league. The current toppers had dropped points in the last match-day, and this gives hope to the challengers.

Atleti won eight of their last eleven games, whereas Eibar was winless in 17 of their last 21 matches, and in six of their last ten at home. H2h matches clearly put the team from Madrid as clear favorites. They recorded the last ten wins in a row, and the last they lost against Eibar was 18 years back. At this venue, Atleti has dominated even better recently. They won five of the last six meetings here.

In addition, most of these wins have been accompanied by clean sheets, not that unexpected from the defensively rigid Madrid. To be precise, the last four overall h2h wins and four of the last five wins at this venue have been of this manner.

Keeping in line with the trend, expect the potential runner-up of La Liga to record a victory to nil this Saturday.
