Before the quarantine break, the “Royal Club” did not often please its fans with victories. In the four previous rounds, Real Madrid managed to beat only Barcelona at Santiago Bernabeu. In the remaining matches during this period, the “creamy” parted with the modest “Celta” (2: 2), and also lost to “Levante” (0: 1) and “Betis” (1: 2) in La Liga and Manchester City ( 1: 2) in the home match of the 1/8 final of the Champions League. Therefore, perhaps a pause turned out to be just right for the capital’s football players.
The Basques before the pause also looked no better than their rival. For the last five rounds, the team managed to beat only Levante (3-0), losing to Alavesu (1: 2), Barcelona (0: 5), Mallorca (1: 2) and Real Sociedad (1: 2). Three points earned during this period did not allow Eibar to fall into the relegation zone, although the distance to it was only two points. A team from the Basque Country in 16th position.
