Our football match prediction:
Having dropped two points in a 3-3 draw with Las Palmas, Real Madrid face a must-win situation in Saturday’s football match against Eibar. Los Blancos aim to regain top position in the La Liga standings, but it has to be noted that Wales international Gareth Bale misses the match through suspension. Anyhow, Zinedine Zidane’s troops need to find their best form as soon as possible if they are to clinch the domestic trophy and, no doubt, the game against los Armeros is of big importance for the title-chasing team. Eibar played out a 2-2 draw with Real Sociedad in midweek and they are definitely capable of upsetting the Spanish giants at their Estadio Municipal de Ipurua. Los Armeros have been scoring goals for fun in the second half of the season and we predict that both teams will find the net in Saturday’s La Liga clash.

Real Madrid are a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 11 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world. Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards.
