      Tip Reasoning

      Including a win on the final day of last season, The Basque club have picked up 10 points from their last 4 Primera Liga matches, having only taken 5 from their previous 18 games. It is an incredible turnaround from the side who were strong favourites to be relegated this year having survived only virtue of financial troubles at Elche last term.

      However the word is clearly out now that Eibar aren’t going to be as soft as everyone thought and Atletico will have no reason to take them lightly as they might have had this been in week one or two. Eibar’s wins over Granada or Athletic Bilbao were certainly no fluke but perhaps they thrived a little off being written off as they were also at the start of last season. Atletico Madrid represents a real step up in class though and Diego Simeone’s side have started well also with big wins away to Sevilla in the league and Galatasaray in the Champions League already to their name.

      They look as defensively assured as ever and both those triumphs came without conceding and you can certainly see that being the case again here given Barcelona are the only side to have managed to score against them so far.

      Eibar lost 11 of their 19 home games last season and failed to score in 8 of those losses. Atletico Madrid are real specialists in terms of winning to nil and have managed it 3 times out of 4 already his season. A professional display is a near certainty and they look good value to win without conceding again at 11/10.

      They’ll have to work for it though against an Eibar side who have only conceded 1 goal in 3 games this season. With Antoine Griezmann in red hot form, they should find the breakthrough eventually though and have more than enough defensive quality to see out the win and even though at 15/4, the odds are short, a 1-0 away win looks like a very likely outcome here.
