FULL TIME: Eibar 1-3 Real Madrid
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Eibar 1 Real Madrid 3 (90 3 minutes – Lucas Vazquez) Real Madrid finally got the job done late in added time! Benzema passes the ball for Vazquez and the winger shows calm to push a low finish into the far corner of the net! That secures the points for Los Blancos!
He was in the back! Bigas was still off set, the ball bounced back over the top, but Ramos made the final trench attack to keep the shot from reaching Courtois. Good chance, that was!
Does Eibar have one last chance in this game? The hosts have carried on and are still looking for an equalizer Real Madrid is hanging a bit
No punishment! The referee has ruled that Ramos’ arm is in a natural position that is going to cause some controversy! It was from the body of the Real Madrid captain that was surely a spot kick?
Criminal claim? Eibar thinks they should get a penalty here for what they saw from Ramos as handball. It certainly hit his arm but was that a natural position? Let’s see!
Eibar will feel they deserve something from this game. The first 30 minutes were tough for the home team but they responded well to the 2-0 and played well
Modric was fantastic in the first half The best player on the pitch But the Croatian midfielder faded away in the second period That’s the effect of the number of games he has played lately
Not far away! Asensio had only been on the field for seconds when he was presented with a free kick from 20 meters away. He got his shot over the wall, but it also flashes right above the bar
Modric is the one eliminated for Real Madrid and he is replaced by Valverde
Arbilla has to be careful here He has already been booked and is walking on thin ice The referee talks to the Eibar player about a foul Could it make sense to withdraw the defender?
It looks like Zidane is making some changes here His team needs them Real Madrid got lost this second half You look like a tired side
Close to an equalizer! Muto comes in at the end of a Kike flank, his header on the near post was good but the ball pinches the top of the crossbar and goes about an inch away!
About to be there! The ball was played for Benzema afterwards, but the French striker couldn’t get there before Dmitrovic! The Eibar goalkeeper quickly got off his line there!
Rodrygo one on one! The Brazilian should have scored a third goal for Real Madrid He was clean through the goal after being played through by Kroos but Dmitrovic comes out to save!
This is a little bit better from Real Madrid They see more of the ball and put some pressure on but the away side looks pretty shaky after the counter attack on the back
They suspect that Zidane is about to make some changes to his Real Madrid team The away side lost their fizz in the second half They look like an increasingly tired group of players
Mendy was back! Real Madrid are grateful for the speed of their French left-back who backtracked all the way to get in and make sure Gil didn’t make it through the gate cleanly! Crucial!
MUTO over the bar! Another shooting opportunity for the home team, but Muto could only send his bet over the bar! Eibar could regret these missed opportunities
Zidane has to calm his players down here Real Madrid were unsettled by that goal from Eibar. They haven’t been the same team since Garcia rolled one up from 25 meters away
Real Madrid played with so much confidence in the first half, but they have lost their way since the restart Eibar has the wind in the sails at the moment! Above!
A gift from Ramos! What did he think? Ramos played a pass directly over his own box, Inui took it, but he could only pull his shot far past the goal if he should have hit
Ramos makes the release! Bigas almost reached the end of a flick but the Real Madrid captain makes a crucial interception and clears high on the pitch!
Diop aims! The seat for the Eibar number eight on the edge of the Real Madrid box was opened His shot was spot on, but he never really had the power to beat Courtois
It goes without saying that the next goal in this game is huge if Eibar gets it they will feel like they can keep winning However, if Real Madrid do it you’d think the game is over / p>
Exaggerated! Mendy flew down the left side and broke into the box. He cut back the pass for Rodrygo, but a diversion shot over the Eibar crossbar. Good chance
Benzema and Modric were the two best players on the pitch tonight, but Kroos also deserves a mention for his way of playing. The German is back at his best
That game seemed so good when Real Madrid took a 2-0 lead after just 13 minutes but Eibar fought their way back into this game, this match is not over yet!
The flag was high! Ramos plays a long ball in Benzema His control was fantastic, he made room for the shot, but the ball flashes past the post. The Frenchman was offside anyway
The second half is underway! Real Madrid are 2-1 ahead of Eibar in this La Liga game!
HALF THE TIME: Eibar 1-2 Real Madrid An extremely entertaining 45-minute soccer game comes to an end Real Madrid were the better team, but Eibar contributed to the competition
At the end of the first half there will be a one-minute break
Can Eibar create another opportunity to reach the level at halftime? They were mostly played out in the first half, but Kike’s stunner gave them a lifeline
Over the face! Mendy storms into the Eibar penalty area and hisses a low cross into the six-yard box.Nobody in a white shirt, however, could reach the end of the delivery
BILD: Eibar made this a battle
There was a quick VAR review after that Benzema goal, which confirmed the linesman’s decision to be sidelined. The French striker’s touch and finish were so good
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NO! Benzema appears to have scored his second goal of the night and Real Madrid’s third, but was sidelined when the ball was overplayed Brilliant finish
A chance for Muto! That was half a chance for the Eibar striker chasing a ball played behind the Real Madrid backline but Courtois quickly got off his line to rally
This is suddenly a different game for Real Madrid It looks like they are trying to take some of the sting out of the game Eibar have puzzled them with that goal
BILD: Benzema has found the network
Real Madrid must keep playing the way they played. You must treat this Eibar goal as a fluke and not let it stop you from making your move. You played so well
That goal will give Eibar a foothold in this game. They barely deserve a stop considering how dominant Real Madrid have been, but you have to make the most of it now that you have it
This has to be one of the best goals Kike has scored in his career Real Madrid haven’t done much wrong, although Vazquez will be unfortunate that he was overcrowded in his own half
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Eibar 1 (28 minutes – Kike Garcia) Real Madrid 2 Impressive! What a way to get back into the game! Eibar pushes up on Real Madrid and wins the ball back in the opposing half Then Kike turns a curling shot into the farthest corner of the net from 20 meters away What an incredible target!
Eibar is fortunate enough to lose only two Real Madrid created three or four really good scoring chances That should have been a third goal Modric had the chance
Rodrygo denied! Real Madrid counterattack, Modric feeds Kroos He throws a pass for Rodrygo behind him and his shot is saved by Dmitrovic The flag was offside
It’s not just Modric who has been in great shape for Real Madrid lately. Kroos has played well too Real Madrid’s midfield unit is so important to them If they play well the team plays well
Most of Real Madrid’s attacks in the first 20 minutes of this game were on the left. Rodrygo has got off to a good start to the game He looks very lively
Shot over the bar! That was an opportunity for the home team to at least test Courtois, but Arbilla’s free kick from around 25 yards flashes over the bar! Not near at all
BILD: Benzema gave Real Madrid the lead
Zidane applauds the last chance He realizes that his side are playing at a very high level early in this game, but that should have been a third Real Madrid goal
What a sitter! That should have been a third Real Madrid goal! Modric picked Benzema with a run to the back post, he was only about five meters away, but he managed to go far!
That was very impressive in Real Madrid’s first 15 minutes. They are two goals for good and they deserve to be Eibar couldn’t handle them
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Eibar 0 Real Madrid 2 (14 minutes – Luka Modric) A second goal for Real Madrid and they could already be out of sight! Benzema and Vazquez have a good exchange on the right side, the former finding Modric with a pass and the Croatian midfielder shoots high into the roof of the Eibar network! Good finish!
The problem for Zidane with Modric is that he is asking a lot of players who are in the twilight of his career. Will Real Madrid pay for that later in the campaign? Will Modric be out of steam?
Modric was in the shape of his life for Real Madrid recently, which says something considering the levels he has reached for the club over the years. He really was that good!
This was a strong start to this Real Madrid game. They have the early lead and are pushing for a quick second Benzema and Modric have started very well
Vazquez shot is saved! Real Madrid crosses into the center on the lower left Vazquez shoots the goal away, but Dmitrovic saves the post
Benzema has been in great shape for Real Madrid lately The Frenchman has really stepped on the plate lately He can’t miss right now! That was a very good finish
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Eibar 0 Real Madrid 1 (6 minutes – Karim Benzema) It’s an early breakthrough for the away team! Rodrygo plays a wonderful pass over the top for Benzema, his first touch is exceptional and the French striker finds the back of the net with a low finish on the near post! Real Madrid is in the lead!
Eibar might have hoped for a rotation from Zidane tonight, but the Frenchman got none of it.He recently stuck with the same core of players
Real Madrid’s form has improved since that loss to Shakhtar Donetsk. They have won their last four games in spin. This run has produced impressive wins against Atletico Madrid and Borussia Mönchengladbach
Okay, let’s go We’re about to get started in Ipurua The start is just a moment away
Real Madrid have played the last three home games. They are back tonight
A win for Real Madrid this evening would bring them to the top of the league together with city rivals Atletico Madrid
Not long until kick-off in Ipurua This can be a difficult place to visit. It’s a winter night in the Basque Country and Eibar has caused shock on its own spot in the past
Vazquez did a good job on the right when Carvajal was injured but kept his place in the Real Madrid lineup on the right flank and has found decent form
Real Madrid are coming into this game after four straight wins. They have found themselves in good form since they suffered a Champions League loss to Shakhtar Donetsk Ascending
More of the same! Zidane largely stuck to the same team for the name of that night against Eibar The Frenchman has stayed away from the rotation lately It has worked, but when does fatigue become a factor?
