EIB vs RM Fantasy Prediction: Back at their best, Real Madrid start showing why they are capable of going the distance this season.
They might not be the most daunting or ominous of setups in the La Liga at the moment but what matters is that Real Madrid are getting the job done. After a horrendous November, the team has managed to once again rekindle its aspirations of challenging for the glistening title.
Winning three matches on the spin, the club finds itself climbing the ladder of the points tally to currently occupy third place in the league. Having erased the deficit between themselves and top spot to just three points, Real Madrid will be eager to further wipe away that margin with a win against Eibar this Monday.
While Real Madrid are the outright favourites in this matchup, the visitors will be well aware that this clash is more tricky than it seems. The hosts have managed to fortify their backline to emerge undefeated in their last five matches, results which place them in a healthy 13 th position.
Real Madrid will be made to sweat it out by Eibar but their attack should have enough in the tank to pull off a closely fought win.
Cote, Quique and Rober have all suffered injuries while Esteban is red carded for Eibar.
Probable Playing XI
Dmitrovic, Pozo, Arbilla, Bigas, Rodrigues, Inui, Exposito, Diop, Gil, Muto, Kike.
Courtois, Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Mendy, Valverde, Casemiro, Kroos, Vazquez, Benzema, Junior.
Eibar – Garcia: 3 Goals.
Real Madrid – Benzema: 6 Goals, 2 Assists.
EIB vs RM Fantasy Prediction
The focal point of his side’s defensive resillinace and fortitude, Marko Dmitrovic has been in the form off his late. He’s made life cumbersome for the best of attacks, a player who has made his side’s defence a citadel.
Giving him company is the gritty and gusty Anaitz Arbilla, a player who has taken over charge of coordinating his side’s backline and ensuring their position and focus across the 90 minutes.
Two cleansheets in their last three wins allude to the defensive resillinace and perseverance Real Madrid have as an unit. And with Eibar being in frugal in attack, a club that has scored only on 9 occasions, another cleansheet for Real Madrid could easily be on the cards.
It sees us immerse in the services of Sergio Ramos, Dani Carvajal who assisted the last time around, Raphael Varane and Ferland Mendy.
Where Toni Kroos scored in the club’s foregone win, Luka Madrid pulled off the one assist to see both the midfielders find a place in our team. Eibar will meanwhile see Papakouli Diop be our pick in this unit owing to the one assist he has.
Eibar’s top scorer with the three strikes, Kike Garcia completes the set of picks from the club. Real Madrid on the other hand are going to be represented by their leading scorer as well in the form of striker of Karim Benzema.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Ramos’ two goals were enough to see him be our captain while Karim is the vice-captain.
Dmitrovic, Ramos, Varane, Dani, Mendy, Arbilla, Kroos, Modric, Diop, Karim, Garcia.
