Real Madrid To Miss Top Stars Including Cristiano Ronaldo Against Eibar

Real Madrid will be without hit-stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale for its deceptively tough away match at Eibar in the Spanish league on Saturday.
Real will miss Ronaldo due to an injury.

The Portugal international sat out Friday's training session with "muscular problems" and coach Zinedine Zidane has opted to leave him out of his squad for this weekend's clash.

The 32-year-old attacker has netted 18 times in 20 LaLiga outings this campaign.

It is unclear whether Ronaldo is also in doubt for next week's Champions League clash with Napoli, with Madrid defending a 3-1 lead at the Stadio San Paolo.

And as for Bale, he will serve the first of a two-game suspension for the red card he earned for pushing an opponent during a 3-3 draw with Las Palmas on Wednesday that allowed defending champion Barcelona to move into first place.

Backup striker Alvaro Morata is also suspended for the trip, further depriving Madrid of firepower.

The three forwards have scored 46 goals between them this campaign.

Also, Eibar will be without its manager Jose Mendilibar, who is suspended for three matches.
