Two consecutive 2-1 victories has Eibar hunting a third consecutive La Liga win for the first time since January 2018.

That looks unlikely though, as they take on Real Madrid, a team they’ve only beaten once in ten previous top-flight H2Hs.

Whilst the hosts have scored an average of 1.6 goals per LL home match this season, they are one of two teams yet to score a first-half goal at home.

Despite that, Eibar have kept things level at half-time in three of their five LL home games, but are yet to see a full-time draw here this season.

Although Madrid’s goalless draw with Betis in their last LL match was an underwhelming result, it did contribute to an active run of four competitive clean sheets, and seven from their previous ten games.

Their last four competitive away games have all featured under 1.5 goals, with the last two seeing the sole goal netted by the 20th minute.

In fact, Madrid’s away league games have averaged just 2.0 total goals per match, one of the division’s lowest averages.

The Spanish giants do seem to kick-on as the game draws to a close though, with four of their six away league goals being netted after the 60th minute.

Players to watch: All three of Fabián Orellana’s (EIB) LL home goals this term were scored from the 60th minute onwards.

Meanwhile, Karim Benzema (RMD) has scored in six LL games this term – he netted the opener in five.
