In-form Eibar a potential banana skin
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.”
