Atletico Madrid 7/10 to beat Eibar in Thursday’s La Liga matchup

Posted January 20th, 2021 | By: Tom Dunstan

Competition: La Liga

Market: Atletico Madrid win

Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport

Looking to extend their buffer at the top of the La Liga table in midweek, Atletico Madrid will make the trip to Eibar on Thursday night.

Starting with the hosts, slumping back to losing ways over the past week, Eibar have continued freefalling down the La Liga table and are desperately seeking a real bounce. In their 18 top-flight matchups so far this year, they have recorded just four wins, seven draws and seven defeats, scoring 15 and conceding 18 in return. Along with managing to muster themselves just a points tally of 19 and opening the midweek fixtures sat holding just a two-point buffer from slipping into the drop zone, it is worth highlighting that Eibar do hold the second-worst attacking record in the division. As for their recent run of results, suffering back-to-back defeats across all formats, Thursday’s hosts have also managed to record just a single La Liga victory in their last seven matchups, a run that stems back to the end of November.

As for the visitors, continuing on what has been a real La Liga purple patch this season, it is no secret that Atletico Madrid are tipped as the leading title contender this year. In their 16 top-flight matchups so far this season, they have recorded 13 wins, just two draws and only one defeat, scoring 31 and conceding six in return. Along with mustering a points tally of 41 and already opening up the midweek fixtures sat four points clear at the top of the table, it should be noted that Atletico comfortably holds the best-defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, including a 2-0 victory against Sevilla last time out, Atletico have won each of their last five matchups on the bounce and have won 12 of their last 13 top-flight contests. Given the recent gulf in class, we’re backing an away victory on Thursday night.
