Eibar take on the visitors Atletico Madrid in the round 33 match of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Saturday, April 20th at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).
Eibar year after year shows us all that a small team with a small budget can deliver a lot of problems even to very, very strong opponents in the best league in the world. Eibar this season has repeatedly brought a sensation (Eibar 3: 0 Real Madrid; Atletico Madrid 1: 1 Eibar; Seville 2: 2 Eibar). The team of José Luis Mendilibar looked great even on the Nou Camp, even though the “gunsmiths” there and lost badly (Barcelona 3: 0 Eibar).

Atletico Madrid is unlikely to lose second place in the current season in Primera (leafing over Real Madrid by four points). Now the main task of Atletico (especially Diego Simeone and his coaching staff) is to determine the transfer goals for the summer and slightly adjust the training process.
It is no secret that in Atletico certain issues are caused by the work of Oscar Ortega (physical training coach in Atletico), because this season the number of muscular injuries passed all imaginable and inconceivable boundaries. This is due to the adjustment of its methods. Perhaps, this spring it will be possible to find a compromise between the complication of physical training and the normal state of the players. Also in Atletico, a number of players also raise questions: Lemar showed himself not very consistent during this season, Filipe Louis just failed greatly this season, Kalinic’s future is incomprehensible, Thomas’s departure is quite possible due to the high competition in midfield (do not forget that the issue with the signing of Hector Herrera is almost resolved).
Atletico will play the rest of the season in mode “reconnaissance by force”. It is necessary to explore the possibilities of players who can leave, and solve all questions about the renewal of contracts. Eibar has little claim for (although there are still chances of getting into the Europa League), they are unlikely to demonstrate anything above their level. It is worth noting that Atletico very rarely plays an optimal composition on the road (Vitolo, Lemar, Correa often appear in the midfield; Kalinic gets a chance to prove his level from first minutes; Montero and Victor Moliejo sometimes appear in defense), so I expect teams to hardly score goals in this match.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 scored goals.
