Eibar vs Atletico Madrid PredictionEibar vs Atletico Madrid Prediction and Preview for Saturday's La Liga fixture. Following a slow start to the season, Atletico Madrid appear to have picked themselves back up, judging by recent results and performances. Churning out impressive displays week in, week out, Los Colchoneros are now just five points shy of first-placed Barcelona.
Match status: 2019/20 La Liga - Matchweek 20
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar)

Surely, with the kind of form they are in, the club’s supporters can already start harboring hopes of an unlikely La Liga success story this term. With confidence sky-high at the club, there is every reason for the fans to get optimistic.

Meanwhile, Eibar have struggled to get off the blocks this season. They have been so mediocre even on home turf and have garnered no more than 19 points from as many La Liga games.

Diego Simeone and his boys will already be licking their lips at the prospect of coming up against this out-of-sorts Eibar side. They should be able to see this game out with a very comfortable win.

Eibar v Atletico Madrid Team News

Eibar were on the painful end of a narrow defeat at the hands of Valencia on the last match-day, despite putting in a good shift in front of the home support. Despite registering more shots on target than their foes, the hosts managed to lose by a 0-1 score-line.

Jose Luis Mendilibar’s men must have learnt from their mistakes, with their attackers misfiring on all cylinders as profligacy crept in. They failed to capitalize on their numerous openings and were forced out of the game empty-handed.

Now hovering closely above the relegation zone, with no more than four points separating them from 18th placed Mallorca, Los Armeros will be desperate to secure a victory to pull further away from the drop zone.

Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, had their hearts shattered last time out in a Super Cup final clash against Real Madrid. The Madrid derby promised much but fell short of all the hype in the end. With the game goalless after normal time, matters were settled over the small matter of penalty kicks.

Los Blancos edged out Atleti in the shootouts via a 4-1 score-line to lift the Spanish Super Cup trophy. With Rojiblancos desperate to get over that loss sooner rather later, Eibar may fall victim of a backlash from the home side.

The visiting contingent are unbeaten in their previous five games across all competitions and are on a stellar three-game winning streak in the La Liga. Their last league game saw them gun down the resilient Levante via a 2-1 scorecard.

Also, Diego Simeone’s men have cemented their place as one of the better away sides in the league this season. In all their away league fixtures so far, they have admitted defeat just once. They have conceded just six away goals so far, all season. This seems a complete squad!

Finally, taking into account that Eibar have lost five of their previous six encounters against this foe on this ground, Atletico Madrid are sure-fire favorites for the win here.
