Real Madrid 1/10 to beat Eibar in Sunday’s La Liga showdown
Competition: La Liga
Market: Real Madrid to beat Eibar
Odds: 1/10 @ Bet365
La Liga continues on Sunday with a glut of games seeing clubs at both the top and the bottom of the table locking horns. Barcelona picked up yet another win on Saturday, while Sevilla were hammered by highflying Valencia as the two teams put space between themselves and the rest of the table. Real Madrid, who play Eibar on Sunday, are in desperate need of a win to keep their title challenge alive then.
Real Madrid have been in inconsistent form so far this season as they have won five games, drawn two and lost one, which is uncharacteristic for a side that many perceive as the best in the world. Indeed, a 1-1 draw with Tottenham in midweek is not the best of buildups to their must-win league game. Madrid find themselves eight points shy of Barcelona at the top meaning a win against Eibar is vital. Another loss would see confidence plummet, as Lionel Messi and co look unlikely to drop too many points this season.
Eibar are currently languishing in the bottom half of the table with relegation a real possibility. Just two wins, a draw and five defeats mean they have only picked up seven points this campaign. Worryingly for the away side is the fact they have scored just three goals in eight games, while they have also conceded 17 times, meaning that they can neither call upon their defence nor their attack to dig them out of a tough situation. With this in mind, Bet365 have given Real Madrid odds of 1/10 to beat Eibar on Sunday.
