Eibar are a tough side. This won’t be easy. But we need all three if we want to stay in the Champions League positions. Atletico are currently on fire and so are Sociedad (Gameiro came off the bench and scored a hattrick in five minutes earlier today to give them the win). We can/should win this match, but that doesn’t always work out as anticipated.
I’m sure the team is also getting excited for the midweek match against Leicester (who just lost while playing with an extra man for 40 minutes to Millwall in the FA Cup). They’ll need to be focused on the job at hand to not accidentally let points drop.
Hoping Kranevitter doesn’t play, but bracing myself for the worst with Iborra out (yellow card accumulation). Full team is: Sergio Rico, David Soria, Rami, Mariano, Mercado, Carriço, Lenglet, Escudero, Kranevitter, Vitolo, Sarabia, Vietto, Nasri, Correa, Nzonzi, Jovetic, Franco Vázquez, and Ben Yedder.
Bring me three points gentlement. If you do it in style, I won’t complain.
