It's on.

Huge game for Real Madrid as they try to bounce back from their disappointing 0-4 loss against Barcelona. Messi and his teammates earned a win yesterday so they are now 9 points ahead of Madrid in the Liga BBVA table, although Los Blancos could reduce that advantage with a win today.

Eibar Starting XI: (To Be Confirmed)

Real Madrid Starting XI: Navas, Carvajal, Pepe, Nacho, Danilo, Kroos, Modric, Kovacic, James, Ronaldo, Bale.

Eibar should be a fairly manageable team to beat, although it's never easy to play in such a small pitch. With Ramos, Marcelo and Varane out, it will be extremely important for Madrid's defensive line to hold their ground against a team expected to apply some intense pressure on the midfield. Eibar's aerial game could also be a threat if Real's defenders are not focused enough.

Kovacic gets another start after his decent performance against Shakhtar Donestks last Wednesday.
