INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Eibar are unbeaten in their last four league games, with their last home clash in La Liga seeing them demolish Sevilla 5-1.
One defeat in their last nine top-flight games tells the story for Los Armeros, with Mendilibar’s men being one of the biggest banana skins for Barcelona in the coming weeks.
The away side have drawn their last two La Liga games, with their form opening the door a crack for Atletico Madrid to feel as though they can close the gap at the summit of the table.
