Eibar vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Eibar have recovered from gaining just two points in their opening five league games by winning four of their last seven, including each of the last two – against Villarreal and Leganes respectively.
Real Madrid have undergone a turbulent campaign so far and were held to a scoreless draw by Real Betis in their last outing.
They recently suffered their first domestic defeat of the campaign against Real Mallorca and they have once again underwhelmed with their performances this season and constantly look like they may drop yet more points, although did beat basement side Leganes last midweek.
The visitors are unsurprisingly favourites for this encounter at odds of 63/100 with an Eibar victory priced at 4/1 and the draw available at 16/5.
These games have produced three goals in each of the last four encounters but neither side has been free-scoring this season so under 2.5 goals at 29/20 appears to be a solid bet with under 1.5 at 17/4.
A ‘double chance’ on Eibar to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 5/4 while a Madrid win/draw outcome is at 1/6.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 7/5.
One to watch for Eibar: Experienced striker Kike has netted in each of his last two games and is the dangerman for the hosts. Is priced at 3/1 to find the net in this game.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Karim Benzema netted a highly credible 30 goals last campaign for Madrid and already has seven from 10in the league this time out. Is priced at 49/50 to find the net in this game.
Long shot: Madrid have kept five La Liga clean sheets in their last seven, while Eibar have three clean sheets in this campaign and conceded just one in each of their last two games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 16/1.
