Our football match prediction:
After hammering Las Palmas at Estadio de Gran Canaria Atletico Madrid will be looking to cement their spot in top three with a victory over Eibar at their Estadio Vicente Calderon. Los Rojiblancos proved their worth in the 5-0 thrashing of los Amarillos and they are regarded as hot favourites to win Saturday’s football match. It is well known that over the years Atletico Madrid have turned their Estadio Vicente Calderon into a real fortress and we predict that they will record a routine win over los Armeros on Matchday 35. Thanks to a 2-0 win over Leganes Eibar put an end to their three-game winless run in the league, but they face an uphill task against Atletico Madrid. Los Armeros are not considered good travelers and they are unlikely to spoil Atletico’s party at Estadio Vicente Calderon. Kevin Gameiro scored a brace against Las Palmas, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Highlighted Player (Koke):
Jorge Resurreccion Merodio “Koke” has enjoyed a meteoric rise after coming through the youth ranks at Atletico Madrid, quickly becoming an important player for both club and country. Possessing impressive technical skills and very mature for his age, the highly rated midfielder is capable of covering just about any position in the middle of the park and he has been used as a central midfielder, left winger and right winger by both Diego Simeone and Vicente Del Bosque. Koke has been a key member of one of the best generations in the history of Atletico Madrid, winning the 2013/2014 La Liga trophy and reaching the Champions League final the same year. Widely regarded as one of Europe’s best midfielders, it is only a matter of time before Koke will join an absolute top club and he is believed to be a primary target for La Liga rivals Barcelona. While playing alongside Xavi Hernandez at the 2014 World Cup, Koke is believed to be a worthy successor of the former Catalans star in the national team now that he has retired, and with 20 Spain caps to his name, his international career is just starting.
