Real Madrid will be welcoming the 18th placed Eibar to the Alfredo de Stefano Stadium this weekend on Matchday 29 of La Liga Santander. Los Blancos are currently placed third in the points race, which is being narrowly contested by Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. It is absolutely vital for the defending champions to seal the three points against Eibar on Saturday evening.

Real Madrid are scheduled to play Barcelona and Liverpool twice in their next three fixtures, and it is crucial for Real to set the tone right with a victory on Saturday. It is a crucial week for Real Madrid from their season’s perspective, as this week could either make or break their season.

For Saturday, Zidane does not have an entirely fit squad at his disposal, and several key names could be missing. Eden Hazard, Mariano Diaz, Alvaro Odriozola, Federico Valverde and Toni Kroos and not expected to be a part of proceedings at all. Dani Carvajal is a doubt for the clash, having failed to have fully recovered from the hamstring injury he sustained in February. Here’s how the Whites could take to the field on Saturday evening.

Defence

Thibaut Courtois will be taking command between the sticks for Zidane. The Belgian has had an impressive season so far and would want to make it all count in the last few weeks before the season ends. Lucas Vasquez will be resuming responsibilities at the right-back spot, with Dani Carvajal’s availability still up in the air.

Raphael Varane will share centre-stage with Sergio Ramos as always. The two would want to have a solid 90 minutes together before an uphill week begins. Ferland Mendy will be starting at the left-back position.

Midfield

Casemiro and Luka Modric will be starting in the centre of the field for Los Blancos. The injury to Toni Kroos has made it impossible for Zinedine Zidane to leave out any of his two pivotal midfielders from the starting eleven.

Isco could be deployed in the absence of the German. The Spaniard has been struggling for game time this season and will want to grab the opportunity with open arms on Saturday evening. Marcelo could be introduced into a wider midfield position later on in the game.

Attack

Marco Asensio will bulldoze his way into the starting eleven after scoring two goals as a substitute in his last two appearances. The player has been on the receiving end of critics a couple of times this season, and it looks like the perfect opportunity for Asensio to unleash himself, especially at such a crucial point in the season.

Karim Benzema will be occupying the number nine position without a shadow of a doubt. The player is Real’s top goal-scorer this season, and he will be keen on adding to his tally of 17 for the season in the Primera Division. Vinicius Jr will be starting on the left-hand side of Karim Benzema. The youngster has shown some good burst of pace in the last couple of matches and will want to put it to effect against Eibar on Saturday.
