Real Madrid vs Eibar: Confirmed team news, predicted lineup, latest injuries

Zinedine Zidane will have a full squad to choose from when Real Madrid welcome Eibar at Alfredo Di Stefano on Saturday afternoon in LaLiga action. 

Real Madrid is boosted by the return of Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio. The Belgian has as impressed team-mates and staff with his form since returning to training and is expected to feature alongside Karim Benzema in attack on Sunday.

Zidane has plenty of options for the remaining forward position, but Isco looks the likeliest to start behind those two in a deeper role. The other options include Gareth Bale, Lucas Vazquez, Marco Asensio, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo. 

With five substitutions permitted per match, there should be chances for everyone over the next five weeks.

Los Blancos are spoilt for choice in the midfieldbut Zidane looks like he will start with Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Fede Valverde. Luka Modric may have to settle for a place on the bench.

The only unavailability is defender Nachowho picked upan injury in training last week while Luka Jovic is also out after returning with a foot fracture when sessions resumed after lockdown last month.

This match is the first senior fixture to take place at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, where Real Madrid are playing their remaining home games in LaLiga as renovation works continue at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kroos, Valverde; Isco; Hazard, Benzema

Eibar predicted XI: Dmitrovic; Arbilla, Oliveira, Bigas, Cote; Leon, Diop, Cristoforo, Orellana; Enrich, Charles.
