Zinedine Zidane has been forced to shuffle his side for this afternoon’s game against Eibar after bad news about Luka Modric’s injury.
The Real Madrid manager has named an attacking side, with Casemiro still out injured the midfield three is made up of Kroos, James and Isco. Eibar will hope to capitalise on the lack of defensive solidity in this setup, but will have to be careful themselves as Zidane’s team look to out-score their opposition.
