That concludes our commentary of the LaLiga fixture between Eibar and Atletico Madrid! We hope you enjoyed it!
Eibar travel to face Badajoz on Thursday in the Copa del Rey, before visiting Celta Vigo in Sunday LaLiga action. Atletico Madrid face Cultural Leonesa in the cup on Thursday, ahead of a home match against Leganes on Sunday.
Atletico Madrid were simply not up to the task as they fall 2-0 to Eibar in Ipurua, failing to mount a comeback after what proved to be Burgos’ 10th minute winner, before Exposito put the match beyond doubt with a late second following a poorly cleared corner. There was a real lack of creativity in the visiting XI, as Joao Felix and Morata were left isolated at the top of the pitch, as the rest of the team laboured to move up into attacking areas for support. The physically dominant Atleti were kept under control during set-pieces, with Thomas’ poor deliveries from corners doing them no amount of good either. Eibar were content to do their defensive work after scoring, managing their first shot on target after the restart with just four minutes remaining; though their second would lead to a second goal in clinical fashion. The win takes Eibar level with 15th place Real Valladolid, while Atleti remain third - in a tie with Sevilla who are fourth.
90' + 1' The fourth official indicates three additional minutes for stoppages.
Edu Expósito
90' EIBAR MAKE IT 2-0 IN THE CLOSING STAGES! A corner for the hosts is nodded out of the penalty area by Savic, who only puts it onto the edge of the 18 for Exposito. The midfielder manages settles the ball down and calmly rolls it into the corner of the goal!
Sergi Enrich
87' Enrich makes his way slowly to the touchline, as Charles will be given a chance to stretch his legs with three minutes left.
Óscar Clemente
87' Vitolo is called to the bench as Simeone sends Clemente into the match.
86' Exposito volleys an effort towards Oblak, forcing the goalkeeper to scramble to his near post to push it wide for a corner. It’s the first shot on target of the second half for the hosts, but they won’t be too bothered by that statistic as long as they see out the remaining five minutes.
S. Savić
Yellow Card
85' Savic is booked for a cynical, frustrated foul late in the match.
85' Lodi clips it into the penalty area from the left, but he puts it over the head of the unmarked Camello - which allows Cristoforo to carry it away.
Sergio Camello
João Félix
83' Joao Felix will watch the rest of the match from the bench, as Camello comes on to see out the remaining time.
P. De Blasis
Fabián Orellana
80' Orellana is taken off with 10 minutes remaining, as De Blasis comes on in his place.
78' Thomas and Joao Felix stand over it, but it’s the latter who steps up to take it. The young forward goes to curl it, but it ricochets off of the wall and out as the opportunity goes begging.
76' Joao Felix interchanges with Vitolo on the edge of the penalty area and gets taken down just outside the 18, winning his side a free-kick in a dangerous position.
S. Cristóforo
Pedro León
74' Leon goes off to a chorus of applause as Cristoforo takes his place in a defensive switch with just over 15 minutes left.
Renan Lodi
H. Herrera
73' Herrera is taken off for Renan Lodi with 17 minutes remaining, pushing Saul back into midfield.
72' Herrera clips a free-kick into the penalty area from a central position for Felipe, who can only turn his header wide of the post!
70' MORATA WASTES AN OPPORTUNITY! Saul waits patiently on the edge of the 18 and receives a pass from Felix, before driving to the byline and chipping it across for Morata, who turns his weak header directly into the arms of Dmitrovic!
68' Bigas is furious as the referee gives Atletico a free-kick in midfield after Morata stumbled and fell under the pressure of the centre-back.
66' Atleti's Saul has scored three goals in 10 LaLiga appearances against Eibar, more than against any other opponent in the competition.
64' Dmitrovic has been forced into three saves today - none of which have been particularly difficult as Atleti have lacked any creativity around the opposing penalty area. Saul and Arias will continue to encroach forward and provide the width, but Eibar remain relatively comfortable.
E. Burgos
Yellow Card
62' Burgos brings Morata down in midfield, as the goal-scorer attempts to slow the pace of the Atleti striker. The visitors look best on the counter-attack, so it’s a yellow card the centre-back is willing to take.
60' The free-kick is taken short before crossing in order to change the angle of the delivery, but Atleti remain unfazed as they easily clear the danger out of their 18-yard box.
Yellow Card
59' Frustration gets the better of Saul, as the wide defender sticks his knee in the back of Leon during an aerial duel. It’s a yellow card for the Atleti left-back.
56' Saul gets into the penalty area down the left, but his square pass into the centre goes behind Joao Felix, which allows Bigas to clear, but only after some pressure from Morata.
54' Dmitrovic rushes off his line to get two fists to Thomas’ corner, but the play ultimately comes to a halt after Morata is caught pushing the defender in front of him in an attempt to win space.
52' Saul wins the ball after trapping Tejero in the corner near his own corner flag, but the ensuing delivery to the far edge of the penalty area comes to nothing, as Arias’ volley is watched wide by the alert Dmitrovic.
50' Simeone has chosen against making a substitution at half-time, but there are players now warming up on the touchline behind him. It hasn’t been an explosive restart to the match, but Atleti are seemingly making it a point to hold more of the possession.
48' Enrich steps in to win the ball before Correa, but the Atleti winger catches the Eibar striker on the top of his foot with studs, leading to a quick break in play. Enrich hasn’t been a big presence in the match, but he’s been willing to throw his body around for the sake his his team.
46' Eibar get the second half underway from the kick-off!
Atleti were undone in the first-half by set-pieces, as their deliveries from corners and free-kicks have been woefully poor, while the deadlock was broken thanks to an Eibar corner that was not defended properly. With relatively few attacking options of any note on the bench, the side that finished the first 45 must be the ones to dig themselves out. Eibar can sit back in the second half and invite their opponents onto them, a position Atleti are not usually comfortable with.
The first half comes to an end with the hosts deservedly in the lead, after Bigas’ VAR-checked opener remains the only difference. Enrich’s work at the near post opened up the far side after a flick-on, which left Atleti defenders in the box flat-footed. Simeone’s side have been lethargic, failing to challenge the Eibar defence with any real degree of regularity. There has been a lack of quality down the flanks, while Felix and Morata remain isolated, as Mendilibar’s XI continue to put great effort into pressing.
44' The fourth official indicates one minute of time will be added at the end of the 45 for stoppages.
42' Thomas takes a corner into the near post, but Burgos stands his ground and repels it dutifully.
40' Eibar have collected 19 points in 19 games played in LaLiga 2019/20 (W5 D4 L10), their lowest tally at this stage in their history in the competition.
38' Saul drives down the left and turns to lose his man, before chipping a cross into the 18. A poised Joao Felix rises and tries to turn the ball towards goal with his head - but an Eibar defender appears to block the chance.
36' Atletico Madrid take a corner on the left, but it’s another extremely poor effort as the low delivery is driven aimlessly into the 18, where it’s hammered away by an Eibar defender.
34' Atletico have been poor in the first half, labouring to gain any territory on the pitch. Eibar’s constant harrying is doing Herrera and Thomas no favours as they look to supply their team-mates up the pitch.
32' Cote pushes ahead, looking to attack Arias, but the right-back wins out as Eibar loose possession carelessly.
30' Atletico Madrid take a corner short, but the forthcoming cross to Morata ends play, as the striker strayed into an offside position.
28' Leon’s free-kick from the right is repelled by Felipe, who is a dangerous presence during set-pieces at both ends.
26' Alongside Barcelona and Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid are the team with the most wins against Eibar at Ipurua in LaLiga (five).
24' Morata chips the ball to the far post for Correa, who doesn’t expect to win the aerial duel over Cote as he jumps somewhat limply and allows the ball to smash off his face and narrowly out!
22' Bigas catches a weak Morata by surprise in midfield, nipping ahead of the striker and winning possession before turning towards goal and firing an unexpectedly dangerous shot - forcing Oblak into a full-stretch save.
20' Herrera pulls his free-kick towards the edge of the 18, catching his team-mates somewhat off-guard. Felipe does his best to slide and get a shot away, sending it wide.
18' Arias tries to push it forward down the right for Correa, but the full-back slips just before he could dispatch a pass as another Atleti attack breaks down. A hurried clearance gives the ball back to the visitors, who win a free-kick on the wing.
16' The diminutive Leon somehow manages to get to the set-piece first to touch it away. In the aftermath, Savic commits a cynical foul which allows Eibar to clear their lines from a free-kick.
14' Joao Felix tries an effort from distance, forcing Dmitrovic to get across his line and push it away for a corner.
12' Poor defending from Atletico is a rarity - especially at set-pieces. Two defenders, including Herrera, were simply left watching as Burgos stormed in to finish the chance, which will no-doubt infuriate Simeone.
Sergi Enrich
10' Fantastic work by Enrich at the near post allows for a second-chance opportunity at the back stick, where his team-mate turns it home!
E. Burgos
10' EIBAR HAVE A GOAL SCORED AFTER VAR! 1-0! Leon whips a corner-kick to the near post, where Enrich meets it to flick it on with his head. Burgos waits at the other side of the six-yard box and smashes it past the goalkeeper! After a brief check for offside, the goal is allowed to stand!
8' Atleti are having a hard time getting into the match, as they are constantly out of possession. Eibar look comfortable knocking it around in midfield but have had few chances from open play to turn that control into a foray forward.
6' Leon curls a delightful free-kick into the box from the left, dropping it into the six-yard box. Two team-mates attack it, but Orellana is unable to turn it past Oblak - who flies into action and turns it around the post!
4' An Atletico Madrid deep in central midfield is clipped to the left post for Joao Felix, but he misses the ball with the side of his foot from close range!
3' Eibar are pushing their counterparts high up the pitch, looking for a poor touch to gift them back possession. Herrera gets trapped and turns it over, but a rash hit upfield reverses the hosts’ good work.
1' Atleti get the match underway from the kick-off!
1' With less than five minutes in the half, it looks unlikely that the visitors will head into the half-time interval level. They've been well-short of the required quality in the first 45, and will need to come out of the interval with an increased sense of urgency.
Atletico make three changes from their last LaLiga match; a 2-1 victory over Levante. Injuries to Kieran Tripper and Jose Maria Gimenez see Arias and Savic play right and centre-back respectively, while Vitolo starts as the left-winger, pushing Saul into left-back and sending Renan Lodi to the bench.
Eibar make two changes from their last LaLiga outing; a 1-0 loss to Valencia. Paulo Oliveira’s red card gives Burgos a chance to start at centre-back, while a change in systems sees no room for Charles, as Orellana gets into the XI.
ATLETICO MADRID SUBS: Rodrigo Riquelme, Renan Lodi, Antonio Adan, Mario Hermoso, Oscar Clemente, Sergio Camello, Marcos Llorente.
ATLETICO MADRID XI (4-4-2): Jan Oblak; Saul Niguez, Stefan Savic, Felipe, Santiago Arias; Vitolo, Thomas Partey, Hector Herrera, Angel Correa; Alvaro Morata, Joao Felix.
EIBAR SUBS: Miguel Atienza, Sebastian Cristoforo, Yoel Rodriguez, Quique Gonzalez, Pablo De Blasis, Charles, Rober Correa.
Eibar XI (4-2-3-1): Marko Dmitrovic; Alvaro Tejero, Esteban Burgos, Pedro Bigas, Cote; Edu Exposito, Sergio Alvarez; Pedro Leon, Fabian Orellana, Takashi Inui; Sergi Enrich
With 15 minutes to go before kick-off, the team news has been confirmed! Let’s start with the hosts!
Atletico Madrid sit five points back of Barcelona, and eight behind leaders Real Madrid ahead of their clash with Eibar, but Diego Simeone’s side are forced to look behind them as well. Sevilla missed an opportunity earlier today to surpass the Rojiblancos, but their loss against Real Madrid left them level with Atleti, having played a game more. Their 22 goals scored is the worst in the top-half of the table, with no side scoring fewer than 25.
Eibar welcome Atletico Madrid to Ipurua, looking to earn a result that will further distance the 16th-place club from the relegation zone. With a four-point cushion ahead of the weekend’s fixtures already in-hand, coach Jose Luis Mendilibar will surely be happy with a point against Spain’s stingiest defence.
