More about the game

Carlo Ancelotti said he hasn't made a decision about who will replace Luka Modric this game. It'd make sense to start Khedira, considering that Real Madrid might need the German's strength to overcome Eibar's intensity. The Basque side always like to kick-off matches by playing with heart and pressing high on the pitch, so Khedira's strong presence in the midfield would be useful.

Real Madrid Projected XI: Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo, Kroos, Khedira, James, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.

It will be very important for Real Madrid to keep a clean sheet, as Los Blancos' firepower should at least give them a goal. If the midfield manage to keep things under control, this should be a manageable game for Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates.
