Eibar vs Real Madrid
Spain- La Liga
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Municipal de Ipurua (Eibar).
The Gunsmiths will host Los Blancos who have found form under the caretaker manager in round 13 of the Spanish La Liga this Saturday.
Eibar is 13th in the table with 4 wins and 5 defeats in 12 matches. They have conceded 18 goals in that period and scored only 12. A win in this match would take them much higher up the table.
They started this league season with 2 consecutive defeats but came back with an undefeated streak in 3 games. That was it, the matches that followed saw an inconsistent team who couldn’t defend their own goal. At the moment they are undefeated in 2 matches with a win included.
In the 6 matches played at home, they have won 3 and lost 2. The last matches played there was a 2-1 win against Alaves, with both teams having a player sent off. They don’t have a clean sheet in 5 of their 6 home matches in the league. Over 2.5 goals came in 4 of those matches as well.
The Whites are on a 4 game winning streak in all competitions. After the disastrous start to the league, Real will be relieved with this recent success. The caretaker manager Santiago Solari has made his mark on the team’s performance so far.
At present, the team from Madrid stands 6th in the table with 6 wins and 4 defeats. A win in this match may put them second in the table depending on the results of the teams that are above them.
In the 6 matches on the road, they have only 2 wins and 3 defeats which came in succession. A total of 13 goals have been conceded by the European champs in that timeline. The main problem has been conceding goals, as the above numbers clearly depict. The team has made chances but fail to convert them into goals.
In 4 of the last 6 away matches they played, the total score was over 2.5 goals. This is the same for 5 of the last 6 matches played by them in all competitions.
So we can see a high scoring match this Saturday, according to the facts that we looked into here.

Eibar vs Real Madrid: Prediction
So there is ample chance that if Eibar can get behind Real’s defense then we may see both teams scoring as well. Real are poor in defense this season in the light of 16 goals they conceded already. They have conceded in all their away matches this season. So we can expect both the teams to score in this upcoming game and place a bet on the same with 1.65 odd.
In 31 of the last 37 away matches Madrid played, over 2.5 goals were scored. Also in 5 of the last 6 matches played by the Whites in all competitions, over 2.5 goals came. So with Solari’s side scoring and leaking goals recently we can expect a score of over 2.5 goals this Saturday. Thus a bet can be placed on over 2.5 goals in this match with 1.53 odd.
