Atletico Madrid hosts Eibar
One of the contenders for La Liga’s trophy Atletico Madrid hosts Eibar in a fixture from the third round of the Spanish league. Los Colchoneros are big favourites at their own Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday. Let’s preview this clash in our La Liga predictions.
Atletico are flawless since the beginning of the season – two wins from two games played. After the win against Getafe at the Wanda Metropolitano in the first round, Diego Simeone’s boys achieved a second win during the visit to Leganes. Right now they are the only team, alongside Sevilla, with a perfect record of 6 points won so far.
For Los Colchoneros it was not easy to win against Leganes last week. The home side played pretty well in defense, not allowing the visitors to penetrate the defense. But this eventually happened in the 71th minute when Atletico’s new star Joao Felix provided an assist to Vitolo, who scored the winner.
So far Joao Felix is proving to be a great hit for Atletico on the market. The club paid a lot of money for him, so we are going to follow his progress very carefully.
Eibar on the other hand won just one point from the first two rounds. This happened last week when Mendilibar’s boys made a 0-0 draw during the visit to Osasuna in Pamplona.
The big news in Atletico’s camp is the fact that Diego Costa is ready to play again. The Spanish international was suspended for a long time since last season, but now the experienced striker is ready to return. Let’s see if Diego Simeone is going to trust him from the first minute against Eibar.
Meanwhile Eibar can’t use the injured Cote and Esteban Burgos, who are recovering from injuries.
That’s our La Liga predictions for the game between Atletico Madrid and Eibar from the second round of the league. We wish you good luck.
