Real Madrid vs Eibar Preview

Tomorrow, Real host Eibar in the 3rd of the 10 finals in La Liga, as they go into the match while missing Sami Khedira, Fabio Coentrao, and Gareth Bale due to injury, and Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez due to suspension. However, these absences are very unlikely to cause problems to Real as they will face a side that was, until the most recent round, on a 11-match winless run in La Liga. Eibar currently sit at 14th place with 8 wins, 7 draws, and 15 losses. They have scored 28 while conceding 40 goals so far this season, which means that Cristiano Ronaldo alone has scored 9 goals more than their entire squad. Eibar have also manage to scored just 4 goals in their last 11 matches in all competitions, which perhaps is reassuring to Keylor Navas who will be guarding Real’s goal tomorrow. Compare that with Real Madrid’s tally of 11 goals in their last 2 matches, and you can already witness the huge gulf in talent and quality between these two sides. And we have not even gotten to the aspect that Eibar will be travelling to the Bernabeu, and as their away record this season shows, an upset is highly unlikely to occur.

One more notable thing is the fact that Real Madrid will play before Sevilla host Barca, therefore there is more chance of pressure being piled on the leaders for arguably their toughest remaining match in La Liga this season. A win by Ancelotti’s men tomorrow will set up the stage nicely for a shift in momentum as Barcelona host Valencia in the next round, so as you can see Real need to capitalise on these relatively simple matches to have even the slightest chance of making a late comeback in La Liga.
