Los Rojiblancos have been flying this season, keeping a clean sheet in eleven of their last 15 and winning 12 of their last 13. In a season where Real Madrid and Barcelona have stuttered, they’ve flown, and are good value for their lead.
Eibar, on the other hand, have had a battle on their hands this season. Outperforming themselves even by being present in the Primera, they sat in 15th place going into the game, but having never lost the mantle of being exceedingly tough to play against.
Remarkably, in the 12th minute, it was the hosts who took the lead, and they did it through their goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic. He stepped up for the spot-kick and finished with aplomb, going hard left before being mobbed by his teammates.

Amazing 24 hours for goalkeepers in Spain: 41-year-old Jose Juan Figueiras – one La Liga appearance, in 2003! – helps Alcoyano beat Real Madrid, Cornella's goalkeeper Ramón Juan, 21, saves penalty v Barcelona (where he is from) and Eibar's Marko Dmitrovic scores against Atletico!
