On Saturday 24th November at 12:00 PM, Eibar will welcome Real Madrid at the Estadio Municipal de Ipura. The La Liga table standings this season is a close call. A drop of points will see a team going several positions adrift. This is the same case with this fixture. Real who are at number 6 is just 4 points apart from the 13th placed Eibar. Eibar is also in just 5 points from the relegation zone something they want to avoid as much as possible. This fixture presents them an opportunity to move as far as possible from the relegation area. However, Real Madrid, despite its relatively bad performance this season is going to make it difficult for this to happen. If their recent winnings are something to go by, then Eibar has an uphill task come this Saturday.
This game will start at 12:00 PM at the Estadio Municipal de Ipura. Since taking the mantle at Real Madrid, Santiago Solari has won four games out of the four players and his side has scored 15 goals and has just conceded only 2. Essentially, his start is the best start after four games ever achieved by any Real Madrid manager in history.
Eibar, on the other hand, is the smallest team in La Liga and their start this season has been unreliable. The Jose Mendilibar’s side has only scored 3 Primera Division goals in their eight matches against Real Madrid. Of these eight matches, Real Madrid has won seven and drawn once.
Real Madrid’s captain Sergio Ramos’s presence in this match is a doubt due to the injury he sustained during the international break. Nacho will be also out as he is nursing an injury. This leaves the task of the centre-back to Jesus Vallejo and Raphael Varane. The good news for the club is that their full-backs; Marcelo and Dani Carvajal should be back for the fixture.
Eibar will miss the services of Pedro Leon who was operated on this week. Others who will miss the match are Papa Diop and Anaitz Arbilla who are both under suspension.
