Eibar and Real Madrid will face each other at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua, as both sides look to maintain a promising period before the international break.
The hosts are unbeaten in the last three matches, as they’ve defeated Deportivo Alaves 2-1 and played out a scoreless draw with Valladolid in La Liga before outplaying Huesca in a friendly challenge. However, looking at competitive games, the Gunsmiths have failed to collect three straight positive outcomes since the start of the season. Jose Luis Mendilibar’s players have one clean sheet in six home encounters and just two clean sheets overall, having allowed a minimum of two goals per match five times in their opening 12 league meetings. Meanwhile, they’ve failed to find the back of the net on four occasions although they’ve managed a brace three times so far.
Since Santiago Solari took charge of the team in favor of Julen Lopetegui, Los Blancos have clinched four consecutive triumphs across all competitions, including a stunning 5-0 away victory over Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League. The reigning European champions have outscored Celta Vigo just before the international break, securing a 4-2 win on the road. But, before Solari’s takeover, Los Merengues have suffered three league defeats in a row, as they currently trail Barcelona by four points. La Liga giants score an average of 1.67 goals per match while they concede an average of 1.33 goals per game. Moreover, Real Madrid have failed to find the back of the net three times this season, while they’ve struggled to keep a clean sheet eight times in the process.
