Eibar vs Real Madrid Prediction
Eibar managed to make a comeback the preceding game week, as they scored two goals in return to the one scored by Leganes. It’s impressive that the victory had come on the road, but it also deserves mentioning that the losers of the day are currently placed dead-last in the league table.
Real Madrid meanwhile lost out on a rare and glorious opportunity to displace arch-rivals Barcelona from the top of the table. After the latter had lost to Levante, all the Madrid outfit had to do was to script a win against the comparatively weaker Real Betis side.
Unfortunately for the 13-time European champions, the game ended as a goalless draw, once more opening up criticism for Zinedine Zidane’s coaching style.
This weekend, the gaffer will be determined to put an end to the doubts of the naysayers. They could further draw inspiration from the struggles at the Nou Camp, where Ernesto Valverde seems clueless about what he’s doing with one of the most expensive squads in the world.
Considering form, Real was unbeaten in 15 of their previous 17 games, and in seven of their last nine on the road. On the other hand, their counterparts lost three of their prior five fixtures and could register just five victories from their past 18 attempts.
Importantly, h2h clashes have been predominantly favorable to Zinedine Zidane’s men, and this further enhances the chances for a Real Madrid win this match-day.
However, understand that Eibar has scored twice or more in their last two match-ups, and impressively in six of their last eight in front of the home crowd. In addition, the Madrid outfit had failed to keep a clean sheet in 17 of their prior 22 road trips, and these stats combine together to pick out the BTTS wager as a promising one.
