After failing to win in their last La Liga games, SD Eibar will be put under a lot of pressure when they host Atletico Madrid at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium in the 17th round of the Spanish first division.
Tough situation for the hosts
Eibar are sitting in 8th place in the league table with 23 points from 6 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses. They have scored 22 goals and conceded 20 since the start of the season.
The home side have been struggling to get the three points in the recent weeks before the winter break. Eibar have been in a really good form since the start of the season but they have failed to win in their last three La Liga games. The team have collected a total of 8 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game finished in a 1-1 draw when they visited Leganes.
Asier Riesgo is available again after injury and starts in goal for the home side in league action. Antonio Luna will certainly start at left-back, as David Junca has been struggling with flu of late. Ivan Ramis is still out with a long-term injury, which sees Alejandro Galvez continue at centre-back.
Atletico looking to bounce back after the winter break
Atletico are sitting 6th in the league table with 28 points from 8 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses. They have scored 29 goals and conceded 14 since the start of the season.
The visitors have been struggling with their away fixtures in recent weeks. Atletico have won only one game of their last four away games in the Spanish top flight. Regarding the overall form, Atletico have also been struggling with consistency. They have collected 7 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game in La Liga was against UD Las Palmas at home where they won 1-0.
Moya will continue in goal, due to Jan Oblak long-term injury problem. Yannick Carrasco has an Achilles complaint. Filipe Luis is fit to start in the league once again and will be deployed at left-back, with Sime Vrsaljko at right-back.
