Real Madrid vs Eibar Match preview
It has not been the best stretch for Zidane and his boys since their loss in the Copa del Rey. They have registered only two wins in their last 7 matches across all major contests.
They lost their top spot in the table after the 2-1 loss on the road to Real Betis in their previous encounter in the campaign. Apart from the El Clasico win, Los Blancos have had nothing to boast.
With 11 matches remaining in the league, Zidane’s boys still have hopes to win the title this season. So, each game will be important, specifically home matches.
Eibar is at the bottom of the table this season trailing behind the host with 29 points. They will visit after a 1-2 loss at home against Mallorca in their previous encounter.
Los Armeros have only three wins from their last ten overall fixtures in the schedule.
Jose Luis Mendilibar and his team stand a chance for relegation. Having won only one of their 13 meetings with the host, the odds are against Eibar in the clash at Bernabeu.
Real Madrid vs Eibar Prediction
Real Madrid is at their best when playing at the Bernabeu. The host is unbeaten at home in La Liga this season so far after 13 appearances.
Eibar, on the other hand, has been winless in the last 6 away matches in the campaign. They are one of the worst away teams with just one win in their 13 away fixtures so far.
It has to be noted that Real Madrid has bagged the bragging rights in all but one of their 11 h2h clashes since 2004. Also, they are unbeaten at home when facing Los Armeros.
With their poor away form, it will be hard for the visitor to trouble one of the strongest clubs in the world even in their fallen form.
We can expect a high scoring affair in the match. With 1.50 odds, over 2.5 goals will be the best bet in the clash.
Considering the stats, the host will be the favorites to win. Since home win odds are too low, the punters can go with half-time/full-time results at 1.75 odds in the game.
