Subs: Takashi Inui, Unai Arietaleanizbeaskoa, Pedro Leon, Sergi Enrich, Quique Gonzalez, Rafa Soares, Paulo Oliveira, Yoel Rodriguez, Recio.
EIBAR (4-1-4-1): Marko Dmitrovic; Unai Dufur, Esteban Burgos, Anaitz Arbilla, Cote; Miguel Angel Atienza; Alejandro Pozo, Sergio Alvarez, Aleix Garcia, Kevin Rodrigues; Kike Garcia.
Subs: Sime Vrsaljko, Mario Hermoso, Vitolo, Lucas Torreira, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Moussa Dembele, Sergio Camello, Ivo Grbic, Felipe.
ATLETICO MADRID (4-4-2): Jan Oblak; Kieran Trippier, Jose Gimenez, Stefan Savic, Renan Lodi; Saul Niguez, Koke, Hector Herrera, Yannick Carrasco; Angel Correa, Marcos Llorente.
It doesn’t get any easier for Atletico up front either, with both Luis Suarez and Joao Felix out injured. Marcos Llorente has replaced the latter up front from the side held by Real Betis; the visitors meanwhile, drop Sergi Enrich to the bench and favour a 4-1-41 approach.
If it’s not followed the plan for the hosts though, spare a thought for their visitors, who hit the foot of the table for the first time this season last matchweek. Jose Luis Mendilibar’s side need the points just as much as their hosts do – which sets up an enthralling contest.
Where has it all gone wrong for Diego Simeone’s side? Halfway through the campaign, they were eight points clear at the summit and looked to be cruising to a second league title of the Argentine’s reign. Now, they’re embroiled in a title fight with two teams in far better form than them.
