Eibar – Real Madrid
Eibar faces Real Madrid at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua in a fixture from the 14th round of La Liga. Let’s see what we can tell you about this game. Are you ready?
Eibar approach this match against the champions from 11th place in the standings. Mendilibar’s team have won 15 points so far and they have a record of 3 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses. So far it’s a solid campaign for the club because Eibar seem to be on a safe distance from the relegation zone and this is the most important thing at the moment.
We must pay special attention to Eibar’s current shape. We have to note that they are unbeaten in their last five matches in La Liga. In these five games Eibar won once and made four draws. Let’s see if they can continue like this on Sunday as well.
Real Madrid are another team in a fine shape right now. Since their dissapointing home loss against Deportivo Alaves in the capital, Madrid won three consecutive times against Sevilla, Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao. Because of this Real Madrid managed to climb to third place in the table with 26 points – this puts them on par with the leaders Atletico Madrid.
In their last game Zinedine Zidane’s boys achieved their third consecutive win in the league. The reigning champion hosted Athletic Bilbao at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano and enjoyed a 3-1 win. Karim Benzema shined with a brace for the hosts while Toni Kroos scored one as well.
These are our thoughts about the La Liga fixture between Eibar and Real Madrid at the Ipurua. Both teams in a good shape are facing each other on Sunday. The champions must be the favourites here, but be careful with Eibar’s current form – they look solid right now.
