Real Madrid host Eibar in what should be an easy game for Los Blancos. Still, Zidane’s men dropped points against Betis, Levante and Valencia at home this season, meaning that they still have to take this game very seriously if they want to earn the three points.
Madrid will take on Fuenlabrada next Thursday and that will be the first leg of their Copa del Rey tie and a good chance for reserves to prove their worth and get some minutes, so Zidane will almost certainly deploy most of his starters against Eibar.
Los Blancos have put on some mediocre performances at the Bernabeu this season and will be looking forward to making a statement. Players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema or Marco Asensio need to gain some more confidence and momentum and this seems like the perfect game for them to do just that. All things considered, Madrid should be considered the heavy favorites here.
