Eibar – Real Madrid
After scoring six goals against Galatasaray in the Champions League, Real Madrid visit Eibar at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua in a match from the 13th round of La Liga. Let’s take a look at it.
After a dissapointing draw against Real Betis last weekend, Real Madrid bounced back in the best way possible, doing a true spectacle in the Champions League. Zinedine Zidane’s team hosted Galatasaray at the Santiago Bernabeu and excited the fans with a 6-0 win. It was an amazing night for the 18-years old Brazilian Rodrygo, who scored his first hattrick for the club. Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos also scored for Los Blancos.
The new star Eden Hazard might be not as impressive as everyone expected in his first months at the Bernabeu, but on the contrary Rodrygo is impressive so far. Despite of being just a teenager, the Brazilian is already becoming a constant starter in Zidane’s team. After his performance against Galatasaray, we shall expect to see him starting against Eibar as well.
In La Liga Real Madrid are in a good position to attack the top, because right now they are second in standings with 22 points, but on par with the leader Barcelona. If Barca make a wrong step against Celta on Saturday, Los Blancos could become leaders again.
Eibar are 14th in La Liga with 15 points and a record of 4 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses. The moment is good for them, because Eibar won their last two matches in La Liga against Villarreal and Leganes. Right now the mood among Mendilibar’s players.
In their last match Eibar visited Leganes and enjoyed a 2-1 win. They got behind really early in the game, but with goals from Charles and Kike managed to win.
Can Real Madrid repeat their great performance against Galatasaray in La Liga as well? Eibar will try to bring them back on Earth, but Real Madrid are looking good at the moment.
