Real Madrid vs Eibar Prediction & Match Preview

Real Madrid


03 April 2021 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET La Liga Alfredo di Stefano Stadium

Real Madrid will be aiming to keep their La Liga hopes alive when they take on Eibar at Alfredo di Stefano Stadium on Saturday afternoon. 

Los Blancos continue to rely on Karim Benzema, who scored a brace in a 3-1 win over Celta Vigo, and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the French attacker when Real Madrid face Eibar in Valdebebas.

Even though Toni Kroos, Federico Valverde, Sergio Ramos, and Eden Hazard remain on the sidelines with injuries, we are tempted to put our money on Zinedine Zidane’s men, who are eager to melt Atletico Madrid’s advantage in the standings. 

Los Armeros sit in the relegation zone, and given their 11-game winless run, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. 

The likes of Yoshinori Muto, Eduardo Exposito, Jose Angel, Pedro Bigas, and Roberto Correa are all out of contention through injuries.

Team News:

Eden Hazard and Dani Carvajal are making progress in their recoveries from injury, but the pair will not be involved for Madrid this weekend.

Federico Valverde and Toni Kroos trained with Los Blancos on Wednesday and could potentially feature against Eibar, although Zidane will not take any risks with the midfield pair ahead of an important period.

Alvaro Odriozola is now available following a spell on the sidelines, but Mariano Diaz remains a doubt.

Isco could be in line for a start if neither Kroos nor Valverde recovers in time, but Sergio Ramos has been ruled out with a calf problem, meaning that there could be a spot in the back three for Eder Militao.

As for Eibar, Yoshinori Muto, Jose Angel, Pedro Bigas and Roberto Correa remain on the sidelines through injury, while Edu Exposito is also unlikely to be available.

The manner of the performance against Athletic last time out means that Mendilibar could decide to select the same XI for a second successive match.

Kike was on the scoresheet at San Mames and should again lead the away side's attack, while Kevin Rodrigues, Bryan Gil and Aleix Garcia are all expected to feature in the final third.

Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Varane, Militao, Nacho; Vazquez, Modric, Casemiro, Isco, Mendy; Vinicius, Benzema

Eibar possible starting lineup:
Dmitrovic; Pozo, Oliveira, Arbilla, Rafa; Alvarez, Diop; Gil, Garcia, Rodrigues; Kike
