The latest of those victories came on Halloween night as goals from Kike and Fabian Orellana secured a 2-1 triumph against Villarreal, and Eibar used that result as a springboard towards getting their first away win of the campaign on Matchday 12, as a further strike from Kike sealed another 1-2 win at Leganes.
With their form on the upgrade, Real’s underwhelming away win ratio and last season’s aforementioned fixture in mind, Eibar are definitely worthy of support this weekend in the double chance market. Jose Luis Mendilibar’s charges are generously priced to claim at least a draw, which they have managed to do in 18 of their last 24 games at Ipurua.
Two consecutive 2-1 victories has Eibar hunting a third consecutive La Liga (LL) 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 (W1, D1, L8).
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 (HT: D3, L2), but are yet to see a full-time draw here this season (W3, L2). Rodrygo could start once again on the right wing ahead of Lucas Vazquez after scoring a hat-trick in midweek.
Key Player: All three of Fabián Orellana’s (EIB) LL home goals this term were scored from the 60th minute onwards.
Eibar Predicted Line-Up: Dmitrovic – Blasis, Oliveira, Arbilla, Cote – Inui, Diop, Escalante, Orellana – Charles, Kike (4-4-2)

With the hosts currently sitting 14th, Saturday’s clash could seem like a fairly straightforward task for Zinedine Zidane’s men at first glance, especially considering that they go into the game on the back of a 6-0 romp against Galatasaray in midweek. Madrid have been far from convincing on their travels for some time now, and they were beaten 1-0 by newly promoted Mallorca when last on the road a fortnight ago.
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 (W3, D1), and seven from their previous ten games. Their last four competitive away games have all featured under 1.5 goals (W2, D1, L1), 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.
Key Player: Karim Benzema (RMD) has scored in six LL games this term – he netted the opener in five.
Predicted Line-Ups: Courtois – Marcelo, Ramos, Varane, Carvajal – Kroos, Casemiro, Modric – Hazard, Benzema, Rodrygo (4-3-3)
