Real Madrid visit Eibar having gained momentum over their last few games. Los Blancos have managed to win their last five matches and seem to be ready to compete for trophies by the end of the season.

Today, they’ll be without Vinicius and Hazard, so coach Zinedine Zidane will have to be creative and find a reliable replacement for the spot on the left wing. Asensio and Rodrygo are the most likely candidates to play there if Lucas Vazquez keeps starting on the right side. This could be a great chance for Rodrygo to prove that he can also contribute through the left wing.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Rodrygo, Vazquez, Benzema.

Eibar predicted XI: Dmitrovic; Rober, Sergio, Bigas, Arbilla; Inui, Diop, Exposito, Gil; Garcia, Muto.

Other players like Valverde or Odegaard could feature in the starting lineup if Zidane decides to make some rotations.
