Analysis of Atletico Madrid Vs Eibar Betting Tips
The start of the weekend of Matchday 4 in La Liga this season, back from the international break, with the match Atletico Madrid against Eibar. The hosts witnessed a surprising loss against Celta Vigo, with a red card for Montenegrin International, Stefan Savic, capping up a miserable weekend, the centre back having been booked for two yellow card offences.
The hosts started brightly, with French international, Antoine Griezmann, going close in the 27th minute. However, Celestes went into the lead, when a slip from Uruguayan defender, Diego Godin, let Maxi Gomez in on goal, the striker driving through to slot past Jan Oblak.
The second goal by in-form Spanish striker, Iagos Aspas, and Los Rojiblancos were made to leave the Estadio Municipal de Balaidos empty-handed.
With Atletico having made successful buys in the transfer market, putting the Reds-and-Whites in contention for La Liga this season, Los Rojiblancos would feel this loss puts them off the mark.
The international break has come and gone, and with players like Spanish international, Saul Niguez, putting in a man-of-the-match display in the 2 – 1 win against England in the UEFA Nations League, Los Rojiblancos would be hoping this performance is translated to club games.
Eibar, however, capped off an impressive weekend with a win against Real Sociedad. The visitors had gone down in the opening fifteen minutes of the game but clawed back up to make the scores level on the 26th minute, when a well-worked goal through to Spanish striker, Marc Cardona, went into the back of the net.
However, Los Armeros would not stop there, as Brazilian striker Charles notched in the winning goal, just on the verge of full time, sending club fans, Armeros, going crazy around in the pitch in jubilation.
Club manager, Jose Luis Mendilibar and fans would be hoping that resilience and team performance showed would be able to get them over the odds come the weekend.
