Eibar vs Real Madrid: Visitors arrive in inspired form after PSG win

Eibar vs Real Madrid: Visitors arrive in inspired form after PSG win

March 9, 2018 Off By Sports Writer

Real Madrid will travel to Ipurua feeling inspired after their win over Paris Saint Germain on Tuesday evening.

Zinedine Zidane’s side proved too strong for Unai Emery’s Ligue 1 leaders as Los Blancos progressed to the quarter-final stages of the Champions League.

And, it is expected that they will push on from the result, hoping to push closer to second placed Atletico Madrid.

The La Liga title is now out of their grasp, unless Barcelona do come out of form, which seems unlikely, and Zidane’s side will be hoping they can end the season with unbeaten league form.

Eibar, have been in tremendous form this season and Jose Luis Mendilibar has his side looking towards a Europa League place, something that seemed very unlikely before the season began.

History speaks for itself if your Madrid fan in this fixture, having beaten their opponents six times out of the last seven.

The home side will be without striker Sergi Enrich (knee) and Fabian Orellana (hamstring) for the game, whilst Ruben Pena will also miss out with a strain.

Madrid will be have a fully fit squad to select from and it is expected that both Toni Kroos and Luka Modric will return.
