Esteban Burgos scored in the 10th minute and Edu Exposito added a second in the 90th for the win. Eibar are unbeaten in three of their last five La Liga matches versus Atletico Madrid. However, just one of those three matches ended in a win. The other two were draws. Atletico Madrid are rolling in the league. Will they slip up against the minnows from the Basque Country?
Eibar vs Atletico Madrid Betting Odds
Atletico Madrid are atop the current La Liga form table. They took 15 points from their last 18 on offer. Simeone’s side scored 10 goals during that timeframe while allowing just four to opponents. While Atletico Madrid’s title rivals are still playing in the Copa del Rey, Atletico Madrid are not after being eliminated by Cornella. They can focus their energies on the league title and Champions League.
Los Colchoneros go into the match on Thursday night at odds of 5/7 to win away from home. Atletico Madrid’s last win away to Eibar came during the 2018-19 campaign. That season saw Simeone’s team go to the Basque Country and win 1-0. Atletico Madrid are on a two-match winning streak in the league away from home. Overall, they have taken 16 points from 21 on their travels. Their only loss came away at derby rival, Real Madrid.
Eibar have struggled in their last six matches in La Liga. Just five points from their 18 on offer were collected. The Gunsmiths allowed nine goals to opponents while scoring seven times. Eibar are a defensive side that are short on goalscorers. If Eibar cannot hold opposing teams in check defensively, they struggle to get points.
Jose Luis Mendilibar’s team have the worst home points total in La Liga. Just seven points from 27 have been taken by the minnows of the north. How bad has Eibar’s scoring been at home? Just four goals in nine matches have been tallied.
Eibar vs Atletico Madrid Team News
Mendilibar could be without two players going into the game on Thursday night. With Eibar having a small squad, the loss of any player for the manager can be significant. Roberto Correra is listed a doubt for the game due to a muscle injury. Jose Angel has a knee injury that will rule him out until February.
Eibar are led in goals by Kike Garcia with five goals in 17 appearances. Esteban Burgos has bagged three goals to go along with Garcia’s goals.
Atletico Madrid full-back Kieran Trippier has been suspended for eight matches. He is being punished for potentially leaking information to friends over his transfer from Tottenham to Atletico Madrid that allowed increased betting on the move. Trippier is appealing the ban. Koke is ruled out for the match due to a red card. Meanwhile, Mario Hermoso and Hector Herrera are ruled out until the end of the month.
The capital club added striker Moussa Dembele last week on loan from Lyon. The striker comes with a brilliant strike rate and will add to the quality in Atletico Madrid’s final third.
Eibar vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
Atletico Madrid to win to nil @ 7/5 - BET NOW
Atletico Madrid have La Liga’s best defensive record. They have allowed just six goals to opponents in 16 league fixtures. Three of their last four La Liga matches finished as wins to nil. Against a team such as Eibar that struggle to score, don’t expect a lot of scoring from the Basque club.
Luis Suarez to score anytime @ 23/20 - BET NOW
Luis Suarez has transformed Atletico Madrid in front of goal. Joao Felix is still hot and cold. He needs the likes of Suarez to help create goals and take defenders away from him. Suarez has scored nine times in 13 matches. He has two bagged two goals in two of his last three La Liga games. Suarez has accounted for 29% of Atletico Madrid’s scoring.
Under 2.5 goals scored @ 27/50 - BET NOW
Atletico Madrid’s defence is the strongest in La Liga. Eibar’s attack is the second worst in terms of goals. They have scored just 15 times while Atletico Madrid have allowed six. Thursday night’s game should be a low-scoring affair with Atletico Madrid keeping Eibar out of goal. Four of Atletico Madrid’s last six games in La Liga ended with under 2.5 goals tallied. Eibar saw three of their last six La Liga matches finish with under 2.5 goals tallied. Don’t expect an explosive, high-scoring game in this one.
Not only are Eibar coming off of a 2-1 loss to Levante in their last La Liga match, but they lost in the Copa del Rey round of 32 to Navalcarnero 3-1 last weekend. Who are Navalcarnero? They are a Segunda Division B team.
Eibar won’t shock Atletico Madrid like they did last term. This should be a straightforward win for the league leaders as they tighten their grip around the trophy. Eibar should keep the game low scoring but lose in the end to a superior Atletico Madrid on Thursday night.
