La Real come into the game emotionally and physically drained following their massive Europa League clash with Napoli in Italy last Thursday. The Basque side qualified for the last 32 of the competition in dramatic late style.
Should Silva come on, he’ll mark his return to first team action by playing against his former club. Silva spent 2004/05 on loan at Eibar while on the books at Valencia.
