Real Madrid were dealt a blow when Ronaldo was ruled out for the Eibar clash to go with Gareth Bale's suspension after his red card during the week along with Alvaro Morata's yellow card suspension and Raphael Varane's injury. Eibar are on the hunt for Europe and will welcome this wounded version of Real Madrid to the Ipurua.
Sergi Enrich, Pedro Leon and Adrian Gonzalez ar not the BBC or the MSN but they have proven themselves to be quite the handful for Eibar this season. All three start after Enrich and Gonzalez were rested during the week when they travelled to the Anoeta to play Real Sociedad in the rain. Fran Rico, however, is out with an issue with an issue with his right knee.
Eibar XI: Yoel, Ramis, Escalante, Capa, Enrich, Peña, Dani Garcia, Dos Santos, Luna, León, Adrian.
After a bruising affair that saw Gareth Bale sent off, two penalties awarded and scored and a late, late comeback by los Blancos, today's visitors might have done with another day or two to relax. They have travelled the 400 or so kilometres just a couple of days after that one to take on a rested and ready Eibar, who played La Real and have had an extra day to recover. Marcelo, who was critical after the Las Palmas game, has been rested with Napoli to come on Tuesday while Asensio played for the first time since January.
Real Madrid XI: Navas, Pepe, Ramos, Nacho, Danilo, Casemiro, Modric, Asensio, James, Lucas Vazquez, Benzema.
