Real Madrid, the defending champions, had a dream-like season last year but this year, the performance is not up to the mark. Currently, they are 15 points behind rivals and table leader FC Barcelona.

But they certainly played well in the Champions League, recently, Real Madrid showed their collective strength in a clinical 2-1 win over Paris St Germain, with this win, they have entered the quarter-finals of the tournament

Now, Real Madrid is looking forward to maintaining the same momentum in their domestic away form when they travel to face Eibar on Saturday.

This season, Real faced a hoodoo of injuries, from Sergio Ramos to Gareth Bale. In a recent press conference, Zinedine Zidane talked about Gareth Bale form and injury.

He also added, "He knows where he is and that the rest of the players are important too, that's all."

"What I'm trying to say is that there's no problem. You want to make this a problem but there is no problem," he responded to a journalist.

"I have to choose a team every three days, and Gareth is important for me but there are other players who are important too, that's all," he mentioned that every player is important.
