Atletico welcome Eibar to the Wanda Metropolirtano for the fourth match of the 2018/19 La liga season early Saturday afternoon. Diego Simeone’s men are still looking to get their season under control after a stuttering start that has seen them win once, draw once and lose once so far.
They signed off with a 2-0 loss to Celta Vigo that saw them drop to tenth on the log this early in the new season. The loss was compounded by a red card to full back Stefan Savic for two bookable offences. Antoine Griezmann still remains their main danger man even as he continues recovering from a lengthy world cup winning campaign.
Eibar have lost both games played on the road so far, including the opener against newcomers Huesca. They will however be keen to overlook that and focus instead on building on the 2-1 win over Sociedad before they broke for national duty. They showed an ability to come from behind with goals from Marc Cardona and a stoppage time winner from Charles. The duo will again be key figures on this away trip.
