Real Madrid vs. Eibar Predictions and Preview
Real Madrid’s form has been extremely rocky this month – a 21-match unbeaten run was recently ended and they have lost four of their last seven in all competitions.
Despite their recent 2-0 El Clasico triumph over Barcelona, that was just their sole victory in their last five outings and they are under pressure to start winning again.
Eibar lost at home to lowly Real Mallorca last time out and they are just two points and two places above the drop zone.
The Basque side have lost three of their last four league games and have just three wins in their last 14.
The hosts are big favourites for this encounter at odds of 24/100 with an Eibar victory priced at 11/1 and the draw available at 11/2.
Madrid have 14 clean sheets in 26 and 17 in total all season, so under 1.5 goals at 9/2 with bet Victor appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 31/20.
A ‘double chance’ on Eibar to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 3/1 with William Hill while a Madrid win/draw outcome is at 1/50.
If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 13/20.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Karim Benzema netted a highly credible 30 goals last campaign for Madrid and already has 18 from 33 in all competitions this time out. Is priced at 8/13 to find the net in this game.
One to watch for Eibar: Fabian Orellana is the dangerman and top La Liga scorer this season (7) for the visitors, and the Chilean will once again be a big threat here.
Long shot: Madrid have kept 14 clean sheets in 26, while Eibar have five clean sheets in their last 10. A scoreless draw here is priced at 18/1 with 888 Sport and appears to be notable value considering Madrid’s struggles in front of goal all season.
