In what was arguably their performance of the season, Atleti crushed Eibar to restore their four-point lead atop the La Liga table.
A relentless Atletico Madrid cruised to a 5-0 victory over Eibar at the Wanda Metropolitano in La Liga on Sunday.
Diego Simeone’s men took to the pitch without Luis Suarez and Joao Felix but it never looked like they were missing two of their most potent attackers.
It was Angel Correa who opened the floodgates, with the Argentine latching onto Saul’s beautiful heeled effort and giving his side the lead with half-time in sight, before quickly adding another to make sure his side go into the break with a two-goal advantage.
Four minutes into the second half, Yannick Carrasco made problems worse for Eibar with a cheeky goal.
Marcos Llorente also got on the scoresheet twice within 15 minutes to round off a dominant win for the La Liga leaders.
