Real Madrid are unbeaten at home in LaLiga this season, winning nine and drawing four of their 13 matches. However, each of their remaining home fixtures this term will be staged at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano while the Santiago Bernabeu undergoes renovation work.
MADRID XI (4-3-3): Thibaut Courtois; Daniel Carvajal, Raphael Varane, Sergio Ramos (c), Marcelo; Luka Modric, Casemiro, Toni Kroos; Rodrygo, Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard.
Eibar enter this match 16th in the table, just two points above the relegation zone with 11 matches to go. Jose Luis Mendilibar’s side have lost four of their last five matches, most recently going down 2-1 at home to Real Sociedad on March 10.
Second-place Madrid are aiming to close the gap on leaders Barcelona, who beat Real Mallorca 4-0 on Saturday to move five points clear at the top. Zinedine Zidane’s men won just one of their last four matches prior to the coronavirus-enforced shutdown and cannot afford any more slip-ups if they are to catch Barca.
