Eibar will welcome Atlético Madrid back to the Basque Country on Saturday afternoon, as the visitors look to consolidate their spot as subcampeones.
Atlético beat Celta Vigo last weekend and went four points clear of Real Madrid with six weeks to go. It’s all Atleti really have left to play for following failures in the cup competitions, and extending that lead could be difficult against an Eibar team that is good at home (just one defeat in the past six).
Diego Simeone will have to trot out an Antoine Griezmann-less XI at Ipurua as the Frenchman is suspended for yellow card accumulation. The Argentine also will be without Stefan Savić (still injured) and Diego Costa (still suspended and causing problems in training), but he’s welcomed back Diego Godín and Thomas Lemar.
Oblak; Arias, Giménez, Godín, Filipe Luís; Thomas, Rodri, Koke, Saúl; Morata, Correa.
Eibar 1-1 Atlético.
