Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Real Madrid v. Eibar Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Real Madrid will play this game with the pressure of knowing what happened in Barcelona's game against Real Mallorca, though their main focus shouldn't change much regardless of what happens with Los Blaugranas. Ultimately, if Zinedine Zidane's men want to have a shot at moving to the top of the table, they need to get three points against Eibar. The visitors enter this matchup on a negative run of form, with four defeats in their last five league matches and facing added pressure of a potential relegation threat if they don't turn things around soon. Los Merengues have not fared much better, at least by their lofty standards, winning just two of their last five Liga matches. A win Sunday would rectify their title intentions following the competition's three-month hiatus.
