Atletico Madrid took a step closer to the La Liga title on Thursday night with a 2-1 come from behind win versus Eibar.

Los Che are unbeaten in three straight La Liga matches including a 1-1 draw with Osasuna in midweek.
Javi Gracia’s team may have improved their form but are still just above the relegation zone going into the weekend fixture in Madrid. Valencia are three points above the relegation zone and need a win – although it looks unlikely – to keep hopes of staying in the league alive.

The game-winning goal came in the 79th minute courtesy of an own goal by Valencia’s Tony Lato. Valencia, up to that point, had played well against the capital club.
Diego Simeone’s team are running away with the league title. They still have a game in hand over Real Madrid, who sit in second place. Can Atletico Madrid keep the gap between them and their Madrid rival?

Atletico Madrid vs Valencia Prediction
Atletico Madrid to win to nil @ 6/5 - BET NOW
Atletico Madrid edged Valencia when they met earlier this season at the Mestalla. The winning goal came courtesy of an own goal by Valencia’s Tony Lato. Atletico Madrid's defence played well and kept Los Che at bay, which should happen again this weekend. Atletico Madrid have kept 14 clean sheets in 25 matches in all competitions this season.
Luis Suarez to score anytime @ 4/5 - BET NOW
Suarez leads La Liga in goals with 11. He has tallied 33% of Atletico Madrid’s goals and is coming off of a two-goal game versus Eibar in midweek. Suarez has tallied six goals in his last six games. The Uruguayan is bagging goals galore for the capital club. He missed this fixture earlier this season and the club missed him in the final third. Suarez could be the difference between a win and draw.
Under 2.5 goals scored @ 10/11 - BET NOW
Four of Atletico Madrid’s last six matches finished with under 2.5 goals scored. They are a defence first team and should keep this game low scoring against a poor scoring Valencia side. Los Che are struggling to get goals and pick up points. Valencia’s last three matches in La Liga finished with under 2.5 goals tallied. The Valencian club will struggle once more in the final third when they take on Atletico Madrid.
Simeone’s team merely need to keep consistent and they will lift a second La Liga title under his leadership. Barcelona are now 10 points back of Atletico Madrid while Real Madrid are seven back. Los Colchoneros have a game in hand which could allow them to increase their lead further in the title race.
Atletico Madrid should get a win this weekend versus Valencia. It could take a little while to break down Valencia’s defence, but they should get the goal – or two – needed for a win.
