Real Madrid goes to Eibar on Saturday, at 7:45 pm.
What’s at stake: Three valuable points. Real Madrid currently sit in second place in La Liga with 56 points, one point behind rival Barcelona but with one less game played. Eibar is aiming to keep its stunning season going, currently sitting in seventh place and in competition for a Europa League spot next season with 39 points.
CR7 Injury Update: Real Madrid could very well be without Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been battling an ankle injury. He did not train with the team on Thursday and was limited to some side work. With the team playing Napoli in a critical Champions League return leg on Tuesday, it is very likely he sits out this contest.
Is Eibar any good: This club is, by far, the surprise of the league. Eibar is in seventh place on 39 points, producing a sensational season. The team isn’t talented but is one of the hardest working teams that displays tremendous teamwork. This won’t come easy for Real Madrid.
