Eibar welcomes Real Madrid
Eibar welcomes Real Madrid in a match from the 13th round of La Liga. We are going to discuss this game with you during our La Liga predictions for today. Let’s start.
Four wins, three draws, five losses – this is Eibar’s record so far, which is putting the club on 14th place in La Liga right now. What we can say that Eibar are showing positive signs lately, because they lost their last two matches in the league against Villarreal and Leganes. This is the way the manager Mendilibar must try to follow in order to secure his team’s survival this season. But how they will do against a team of a much different quality on Saturday?
Real Madrid are one of the three teams with the same amount of points at the top of the standings, the other two being Barcelona and Real Sociedad. Alongside Atletico Madrid, they are also the team with the less amount of losses so far – just one. Against Eibar Los Blancos will try to redeem themselves after the 0-0 draw with Real Betis last weekend.
They kind of did it during the week when they crushed Galatasaray with 6-0 in the Champions League. The 18-years old Brazilian wonderkid Rodrygo is the player everyone is talking about right now. The Santos youth product scored a hattrick against the Turkish side, proving to be one of Real Madrid’s biggest stars this season. You can be sure that Zinedine Zidane will put him in the starting line-up on Saturday as well. He can’t put a player in such a form on the bench, that’s for sure.
At this moment Zidane can’t use Gareth Bale, Nacho and Marco Asensio, who are injured. Eibar will be without Ramis and Rober Correa.
That’s our La Liga predictions for today for the game between Eibar and Real Madrid on Saturday. Will the young Rodrygo shine again? We shall see.
