Atlético Madrid vs Eibar
Spain – La Liga
Start date: 01. Sep 2019, 22:00
Location: Madrid Venue: Estadio Wanda Metropolitano
Referee: Santiago Jaime Latre, Spain
Atletico Madrid will be aiming to keep their 100% record in the 2019/2020 La Liga season intact when they host Eibar at their Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday evening. Los Rojiblancos kicked off the new campaign with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Getafe and thanks to Vitolo’s goal the capital club picked up all three points from Sunday’s football match against fellow capital club Leganes.
Diego Simeone’s troops are determined to put an end to Barcelona’s dominance in the Spanish top flight and we are positive that they will go for a win against Eibar. Diego Costa is likely to recover in time to face los Armeros and seeing that summer signing Joao Felix has already started paying off, home win should be considered. The Basques have collected only one point from possible six, which is yet another reason why the visitors are likely to return home empty-handed.
Eibar were in fact one of the four teams to earn anything at Wanda in 2018/19 after battling to a 1-1 draw, however they hold a woeful record against Madrid overall. Los Armeros have never beaten Atleti in the top flight and have lost eight of the previous ten meetings.
After a 2-1 defeat at Mallorca on the opening day and a 0-0 stalemate at Osasuna, Eibar have now won just two of their last 21 La Liga fixtures on the road, losing ten. That record alongside the head to head mean it’s highly unlikely that Jose Luis Mendilibar side can get anything here on Matchday 3.
The hosts should find this a fairly comfortable outing and we expect Simeone’s side to post another victory without conceding. As usual, Atleti will probably only do what they have to, so 1-0 is our correct score forecast.
