Eibar vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Eibar vs Atletico Madrid Predictions
Eibar will be glad to be back home though their home form isn’t any better. Eibar goes to this game with two straight losses, and the most recent is a very embarrassing one. They lost to Segunda B side Navalcarnero in the Copa del Rey, and now they only have La Liga to play for. One clean sheet is not something they will be too glad to have in the last five matches, especially having conceded two or more in the previous three games. In the last three matches, Eibar has conceded eight goals. The stain of having lost 3-1 to a Segunda B side could stick with them heading to this game but having led in their last two matches and lost both should be a big worry. In fact, Eibar has led in all their previous five matches but won just two. Their struggles are also marked in the manner of their win against Las Rozas in the earlier Copa del Rey round. They led 3-0 in the 69th minute but were forced to win it 4-3 in extra time after their hosts scored thrice in six minutes. Pedro’s three goals have come in the previous two away matches, and they have scored in all their last five away games, so they’ll want to keep that going here. Luis Rioja is a guy who makes a lot of trouble for the opponent on the left flank. He has speed and an excellent one-on-one game.
Atletico is racing towards the title after a fine run in these early stages of the season. The team will open up a seven-point gap should this end in a win for them. They will still have a game in hand. Atletico Madrid overcame the humiliation of losing to Cornella in the Copa del Rey, with a 2-0 win over Sevilla in their most recent game. They have four wins in the last five matches and with three clean sheets. Defensively, Atletico has been the best in La Liga this season and heading to this clash, they have conceded just six goals and have one loss in the 16 league matches they have played. In three of their last five matches, Atletico has scored twice, and after that boost in the Sevilla win, they will be very confident here. Joao Felix enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Diego Simeone seeks responsibility in every game, and it doesn’t matter who the opponent is. The players have to do their best, which is why he is one of the best coaches in the world.
Atletico Madrid is playing great this season, and they are the favorite in this match. The goal is the title this season, and they want to continue their excellent run.
The prediction for this match is over 1.5 goals. This clash should be a real treat for all football fans.
