Real Madrid will be hosting Eibar this afternoon just three days ahead of the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Quarterfinals against Liverpool. Los Blancos are six points behind Atletico de Madrid and two behind Barcelona in La Liga table, which means that they must find a way to get a solid winning streak going if they want to fight for the title.
This is the first game after the FIFA break, so it’s likely that some of Madrid’s starters are a bit tired and rusty. All things considered, Real Madrid should be trying to gain some confidence and momentum for Tuesday’s clash but coach Zidane could consider making some rotations in order to keep his veterans fresh.
Eibar are fighting to avoid relegation this season, so Madrid clearly have what it takes to get the three points today, even if they still have to take the game seriously.
