Real Madrid in a solid run of form at present with Zidane’s men very much alive in LaLiga and facing Liverpool in the quarter final stage in the 2020/21 Champions League with the first leg next week.
Mendilibar’s Eibar are win-less in their past five outings and will need a big, big performance to leave the capital with a point/ points this aftternoon.
Nacho will have to be extremely careful not to get booked when Real Madrid take on Eibar this afternoon. With Sergio Ramos out injured for the next month, Zidane’s third choice centre-back will step in to fill the vacancy.
The corresponding fixture last season, once again saw Real Madrid run out 3-1 winners on the day but the game was a tighter affair than the scoreline would suggest.
In all Eibar’s seven seasons in LaLiga, just once have the Basque side been able to take points from Madrid in the Spanish capital (October 2016) when the Armeros bagged a 1-1 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Into the final ten of the half and Mendilibar will be the happier of the two managers with the current result. Eibar battling to avoid relegation after seven seasons in the top flight.
Madrid being allowed far too much space by Eibar and it really feels like a question of time before we see Dimotrivic retrieving the ball from the back of the net.
Goooooool. This one will stand. Asensio skips through the Eibar defense and slots home after a fine ball from Casemiro.
