Real Madrid vs Eibar Preview & Betting Tips


Real Madrid will be looking to get their title charge back on track when they entertain Eibar at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano on Sunday. Los Blancos have an excellent record against Eibar, while striker Karim Benzema has an envious goalscoring record against them.

Real Madrid Form & News


Real Madrid went into the La Liga break with just one win in five fixtures in all competitions. Their final match before the break ended in a 2-1 defeat at Real Betis, with Karim Benzema scoring for Real.

While on their below par run of form, they did beat title rivals Barcelona 2-0 at the Bernabeu. The dip in form came after Real Madrid lost just one match in 23 in all competitions.

Los Blancos are still in the La Liga title race, with just two points separating them from leaders Barcelona.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane has a near fully-fit squad to choose from, with only striker Luka Jovic out injured.

Eibar Form & News


Eibar head into this fixture with just three victories in 15 La Liga games. In fact, Eibar have only won one of their last five league matches - and that came against Levante three months ago.

That run has included a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Barcelona at the Camp Nou and a disappointing 2-1 home loss to Mallorca. Their last La Liga match ended in a 2-1 loss at free-scoring Real Sociedad.

Eibar's problems are in defence. They have been disappointing in their last five fixtures, with 11 goals conceded in that time. That run of form sees them sitting just two points above the dreaded drop zone.

Midfielder Gonzalo Escalante and defender Paulo Oliveira are both banned for Eibar, while defender Ramis is injured.
