Prediction and odds for the game: Real Madrid (1/4) v Eibar (11/1)
We are backing the no to both teams scoring at odds of 3/4
When: Sunday, 14th June 2020, Kick-off 17:30
Where: The Santiago Bernabeu
On Sunday evening, Real Madrid host Eibar at the Santiago Bernabeu, in a game that could have massive implications on the race for the Spanish top-flight title.
Zinedine Zidane’s team are still hopeful that they can end Barcelona’s two-year grip on the Spanish title this season. Los Blancos are second place in La Liga, trailing their Catalan rivals by just two points.
The team from the Spanish capital were in poor form before the enforced break. They had won just one of their previous four league outings in La Liga. Last time out they suffered a 2-1 defeat at Real Betis. The defeat was even more disappointing as it came on the back of a 2-0 win over Barcelona in El Clasico.
As is usually the case with Real Madrid, they have been hard to beat at the Bernabeu of late, as they are unbeaten in 13 league games on home soil, having recorded nine wins. A big factor in their recent good home results has been their attacking threat, as Los Blancos have scored at least two goals in nine of their last 12 home matches in the Spanish top-flight.
The visitors will be looking nervously over their shoulders at the relegation zone, as they are only two points clear of the relegation zone. The fact that they have won just one of their last seven league games has not helped their chances of avoiding slipping into the relegation zone. They have also lost four of their last five La Liga matches.
Their poor recent league results may well be largely down to their poor recent defensive displays, as Jose Mendilibar’s team has conceded at least two goals in four of their last five outings in the Spanish top-flight.
It will come as little surprise that Eibar have been travel sick of late considering their recent results. The visitors have won just one of their last 14 matches on their travels in La Liga, having lost four of their previous six league matches on the road. The visitor’s main problem of late is scoring goals, as they have failed to score in four of their last five league matches on their travels.
It is hard not to back the home win in this clash, so we are backing it, even if it is slightly unimaginative. We are also backing Real Madrid to keep a clean sheet, saying that both teams will not score.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 1/4 and/or no to both teams scoring at odds of 3/4. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
