Real Madrid – Eibar (Sunday June 14, 7.30 p.m.)

Real Madrid, with Belgian superstars Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois, has leader Barcelona clear in its crosshairs. The gap is only 2 points small, so a victory for Los Blancos could mean that they capture the first place from eternal rival Barcelona. That is, if the latter loses. Luckily for Real Madrid, its opposition this weekend isn’t the strongest outfit in La Liga. Eibar is only 16th in the ranking, and with 27 points, it’s one of a handful teams that still needs to worry about possible relegation. Can the minnow beat the odds and slay the giant from the capital?
