NEWS | 09/11/2019 | Javier VázquezThe Whites head to Ipurúa for match day 13 in LaLiga (6:30pm CET).
The team are looking solid in defence, especially in their last four games, where they did not concede a single goal. This will be a key aspect for the team, something that Zidane highlighted in his press conference ahead of the game: “I really value keeping clean sheets because it means that the whole team worked for it”. The Frenchman has called on 19 players for the clash.
This week's European masterclass was a great example of the fine form Real Madrid are in. No player underpins that form better than Rodrygo, who was voted player of the week in the Champions League. Benzema has scored three goals in his last three games and Kroos is the best passer in LaLiga. At Éibar, nothing will be taken for granted, the players need to head onto the pitch and prove it all over again.
Éibar took six games to record their first win, and currently sit 14th in the table. Since that poor start, they have gone on to win two consecutive games and have shown real grit at home, seeing off the likes of Sevilla, Celta and Villarreal.
