Atletico Madrid vs Eibar – Predicted line ups and betting odds – La Liga 2019/20
This has been a summer of change for Atletico Madrid and Diego Simeone. Big names such as Antoine Griezmann, Diego Godin, Lucas Hernandez, Felipe Luis, Juanfran, Rodrigo have all left and most of them have formed the core of Diego Simeone’s side for a number of years at Atletico Madrid.
Understandably, with the number of players leaving, significant number of incomings were expected. The likes of Mario Hermiso, Kieran Trippier, Renan Augusto Lodi and Joao Felix were signed in the summer transfer window. They have had a great start to the season with consecutive wins against Leganes and Getafe.
On the other hand, Eibar have got off to a winless start with a goalless draw against Osasuna last weekend after a loss against newly-promoted Real Mallorca in the opening gameweek. This is not the type of game where they will be confident of finally getting a win, but nevertheless, following last season’s solid 12th place finish, they will be looking to build on that and make progress this season.
They are one of the lowest spenders in the La Liga but have stepped into their sixth consecutive season in the top-flight of Spanish football. They will know that they face an uphill battle to get a point from the game but if they can display their doggedness, they will definitely be causing some problems to Atletico Madrid.
Here are some of the betting odds offered by BigPesa-
Anytime goalscorer - Joao Felix
Coming in for a huge price tag, Felix does not seem to be fazed by the expectations of being the replacement for Antoine Griezmann and has settled in nicely, so far. He has been one of the major bright sparks for Atletico since the pre-season and a game at home against Eibar might be a fine opportunity for him to finally get his first official goal for Atletico, and at a price of 2.01, it seems like a smart punt.
