Atletico Madrid Vs Eibar Live Online Commentary
Diego Simeone’s tutored team are playing one of the weakest seasons under Argentine manager. Atletico showed dissapointing display in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semifinal tie with Real Madrid losing 3-0 at Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night. Simeone is most likely going to rest his key players for the second leg. On the other note, the team has been terrific at the back in the most recent Primera Division matches as Atletico kept three clean sheets in last four league games. As regards team news ahead of this meeting: it should be a straight swap at centre-back with Diego Godin back from a ban but Stefan Savic suspended for this one. Sime Vrsaljko is still likely to be missing so Thomas Partey or Lucas will fill in at right-back.
On the other hand, Eibar have also been solid at defense in the most recent period. The team led by head coach Jose Mendilibar took four points from matches with Deportivo Alaves and Leganes and they will end the season in the top half of the Liga Santander table. As for visitors team news: right-back Ander Copa is out with a hand injury. Gonzalo Escalante should come into the midfield following a ban.
