How Real Madrid could line up against Eibar

Sports Mole looks at how Real Madrid could line up in Friday night's La Liga clash with Eibar.

Real Madrid will be looking to bounce back from last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Real Betis when they welcome a struggling Eibar to the Bernabeu on Friday night.

Los Blancos have only won one of their last four in La Liga but are still in a strong position in the table, occupying second position, just two points off leaders Barcelona.

Friday's match will be played behind closed doors at the Bernabeu as Spain attempts to control the coronavirus outbreak.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Zinedine Zidane's side could line up against Eibar.

Madrid remain without the services of Marco Asensio and Eden Hazard through injury, while Thibaut Courtois and Marcelo will also miss the contest due to muscular issues.

As a result, Alphonse Areola is set to earn a spot between the sticks, while Ferland Mendy will feature at left-back.

There has been some good news on the injury front this week, though, with Isco returning to training following the back problem which saw him miss out last weekend.

Defenders Dani Carvajal and Nacho have also both overcome the flu to make themselves available, meaning that Zidane does have options despite missing some key players once again.

Isco could join Vinicius Junior alongside Karim Benzema in the final third of the field, while there is expected to be a change in midfield with Federico Valverde being tipped to return to the XI.
