Cristiano Ronaldo Brace Sees Real Madrid Past Eibar in La Liga

His double means Ronaldo has now scored in seven consecutive games and has a remarkable 13 goals overall in that period. "The statistics speak for themselves".

Real Madrid have won their three league trips to Eibar, scoring 10 goals on aggregate (3.3 on average).

Gareth Bale and Isco returned, having been on the bench at Paris Saint-Germain in midweek, with the Spain worldwide in particular having a quiet game.

"Luka was out for nearly three weeks, came back and played very well", he said. But Neymar is a very good player. He chested the ball down and slammed it in at the near post.

Eibar started the second half with confidence, and after a fierce cross from Gonzalo Escalante forced a diving save from Navas, the home side was soon level.

Ramos nodded the ball into the bottom corner after meeting Pedro Leon's corner. The Welshmen though glanced his header from the resultant corner just wide of the target.

Eibar showed no signs of sitting back and nearly went ahead on 82 minnutes but Kike Garcia sent his low strike just wide of the upright.

Lucas Vazquez and Karim Benzema replaced Isco and Toni Kroos as Zidane looked to raise the tempo and find a second goal.

Ronaldo put Madrid ahead in the 34th minute after Luka Modric intercepted a ball from defender Aritz Arbilla and placed a ideal pass for the Portugal forward to control with his chest and fire in. His whipped cross found the leaping Ronaldo and he made no mistake.

Sevilla trailed Valencia by eight points before kick-off but that gap was stretched to 11 after two goals from Rodrigo Moreno sealed a comfortable victory.
