Atletico Madrid has won 7 out of the last 8 games at home in La Liga and they are the hot favourites to win the match against Eibar. Atletico have kept a clean sheet in 10 out of their last 13 home games in La Liga.

Atletico Madrid look defensively very strong after getting two 1-0 wins in their first two La Liga games. Atletico Madrid’s record signing João Félix has lit up La Liga with two great performances. Diego Costa has been declared fit and he might start alongside Alvaro Morata and while Felix might be forced to play a wider midfield role.

For Eibar, Anaitz Arbilla will replace Jose Angel at the left-back position who is currently injured. Pape Diop and Gonzalo Escalante are likely to start in the midfield to give stiff competition to Atletico Madrid.
