We have against the pick that Eibar is surpassing all expectations this season, the 3rd consecutive of its history in 1ª Division.
March 9th classified in the competition of the regularity to 5 points of European positions, whereas in Cup already is in these for him historical 1/4 of end that are the first of its history.
However, I do not think that the accumulation of efforts between two competitions can take its toll on the template armor, which is not enough of a closet fund.
For this match, in addition, counts up to 5 casualties.
Specifically the goalkeeper, Asier Riesgo, 3 of his defenses, and one of his forwards.
He faces a much broader Atletico Madrid to face several competitions at the same time, to give players entry for refreshment without the team noticing too much.
With his 1-0 victory over Betis last weekend Athletic has 3 consecutive league games to win and has won 5 of his last 6 official matches, plus he has left his goal in 0 of 3 of the 4 games he has played In 2017.
In addition, it has to be said that Simeone has won all his matches with Eibar since training Atlético (5 matches), and without going any further by 0-2 in Ipurúa on league day 12 days ago.
In the table of the league 8 points separate to Eibar, 9º classified, of Atlético, 4º, and that now it would dispute the previous one of the Champions.
