Real Madrid take on Eibar for their first game after the three-month postponement of La Liga due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Los Blancos have recovered key players Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio but it’s not clear if they will be ready to start in this first game, especially the latter.

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

Eibar predicted XI: Dmitrovic; Arbilla, Oliveira, Bigas, Cote; León, Diop, Cristoforo, Orellana; Enrich, Charles.

It’s likely that Zidane decides to start Hazard considering how crucial he is to this team. Asensio would wait for his chance on the bench and should be ready to start after the first two or three games, given that he needs confidence and minutes to improve his conditioning after spending the last 10 months recovering from the ACL injury he suffered in the summer of 2019.

Barcelona made a statement with their win in Mallorca last night, proving that they’re ready to take care of business against smaller teams. It won’t be easy for Real Madrid to regain the lead in the table and for the moment all they can do is win their games and hope that Barcelona end up dropping points.
