In-form Eibar a po­ten­tial ba­nana skin

Sport360 - - La Liga -

Five wins in six have kept Atletico Madrid in the ti­tle hunt, but Diego Sime­one’s side face a tricky task at Eibar to­day. Eibar’s 19 point-haul from a pos­si­ble 21 has pro­pelled them to sev­enth.

“Ipu­rua is a very com­pli­cated place. We have to be hum­ble,” said Atletico mid­fielder Saul Niguez, who is ex­pected to re­turn af­ter miss­ing a 2-0 win over Getafe through sus­pen­sion.

“The first half of the sea­son was pos­i­tive. We had dif­fi­cul­ties: new sta­dium, the first few matches away from home, we couldn’t sign play­ers, but the team have re­sponded well.”
