Eibar – Atl. Madrid : Preview & Prediction
Eibar, only 15th in Liga, is under threat from the relegation zone since the club Elche, 18th and first relegation, is only 3 units behind … Suffice to say that a failure against the leader would put the formation of Mendilibar in a mess. Kike’s teammates (5 goals) obtained only 4 successes in 18 days and have just been eliminated against the modest formation of Navalcarnero (3-1) on January 17 in the Round of 16 of the King’s Cup. A huge disappointment for the resident of the elite of Spanish football who had suffered, a week before, another setback on the ground of Levante (2-1). A third defeat in a row to come against the leader? Atlético Madrid walks on water during this first phase since the Madrid club recorded 13 victories after 16 days and has a fiery attack (31 goals) and an impermeable defense (6 goals). The Colchoneros, except for a surprise elimination at Cornella (1-0) in the Copa del Rey on January 6, are irresistible in the league since they have just aligned 5 victories in the last 5 days. Suarez’s partners (9 goals) defeated Elche (3-1), Real Sociedad (2-0) on Basque soil, Getafe (1-0), Alaves (2-1) away and Sevilla FC (2-0) at Wanda Metropolitano on January 12. The Simeone team, which is 4 lengths ahead of Real Madrid with 2 games late, can increase their lead over their pursuers if they perform at the municipal stadium in Ipurua.
Eibar is only 15th in Liga.
Atlético Madrid are leaders in the Spanish league.
Atlético have the second attack in Liga (31 goals) and the best defense (6 goals).
The last direct confrontations turn to the advantage of the Colchoneros: 12 wins, 3 draws against 1 defeat.
Atlético have won the last 5 days.
Atlético Madrid, which is on a very positive momentum, should logically take the 3 points on the lawn of the 15th of Liga.
