This match will be played behind closed doors due to concerns on the spread of the coronavirus across Europe.
In their latest match in the league, Real Madrid lost 2-1 at Real Betis and lost the chance to seize top spot from Barcelona, aside of course from making a huge follow-up of their recent 2-0 conquest of the Catalan side.
Zinedine Zidane’s men remained second with 56 points after 27 minutes, two points behind rivals Barca, who visit Mallorca on Sunday.
The defeat at Betis was Real Madrid’s second in their last five La Liga games. The other loss was also suffered away at Levante 1-0. They posted two wins in that span, 4-1 at Osasuna and 2-0 over visiting Barcelona, whilst drawing once 2-2 against visiting Celta Vigo.
Eibar are teetering on the brink of relegation as they are 16th in the table with 27 points, two points ahead of 17th placers Celta Vigo and two points up on 18th placers Mallorca.
Jose Luis Mendilibar’s men had only one win, 3-0 at home over Levante, in their last five league matches but their latest game, also at home, was not a success as visiting Real Sociedad handed them a 2-1 loss.
Eibar’s other defeats were 2-1 at Deportivo Alavs, 5-0 at Barcelona and 2-1 at home to Mallorca.
Real Madrid roared back from a 0-1 deficit with two second-half goals from Karim Benzema (59th minute and 81st minute) to subdue Eibar the last time they met in the league at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid also won three other games in that span, one at home and two away, whilst Eibar had lone win at home.

Real Madrid vs Eibar Prediction
• Real Madrid’s form as of late was the reason why rivals Barcelona overtook their lead in the title race. They have lost 3 of their last 4 games, and they wouldn’t want to carry on this momentum against their 2nd round tie with Manchester City in the Champions League next week.
• Eibar are spiralling down the table after a string of losses (4 out of their last 5 games). They are at 16th place and are just 2 points above Mallorca who are on a relegation spot.
• The Los Blancos have won 5 of their last 6 head-to-head matches with the visitors, including a 4-0 thrashing at Eibar early on in the season. We might expect Sarri to rest some of his first-team players for the upcoming Champions League tie in the middle of next week, but it will still be a Madrid win that will cover the handicap.
