Real Madrid vs. Eibar Predictions and Preview
Real Madrid are out of the title race in La Liga – they languish 13 points behind league leaders Barcelona and are also out of all cup competitions.
Recent league victories over struggling Real Valladolid, Celta Vigo and Huesca, coupled with a loss at Valencia, do not carry great significance, although the return of boss Zinedine Zidane has revitalised the club and rejuvenated their confidence.
Eibar are having another successful season in Spain’s top flight – they sit in 10th position with nine wins, 12 draws and nine defeats to date this campaign.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Karim Benzema has netted 23 goals this season including four in his last four, while he is priced at 8/15 to continue his good form in front of goal this season in this clash.
One to watch for Eibar: Brazilian striker Charles is the main goal threat for the visitors and he has already bagged 12 La Liga goals this campaign. He is at 6/4 to find the net at any point in this game.
Long shot: Real Madrid have failed to score in two of their last six domestic games while Eibar have drawn seven of their last 15 games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 33/1.
