Cristiano Ronaldo strikes twice as Real Madrid beat Eibar

Cristiano Ronaldo strikes twice as Real Madrid beat Eibar

Los Blancos' three points over Eibar lifts them four points clear of fourth-placed Valencia having played a game more; a gap which could be reduced to one - with Los Che Els Taronges leading 1-0 at Sevilla at the time of writing. Spain global Rodrigo Moreno scored either side of halftime to inflict a third home defeat in little more than two months on Sevilla, whose best chance of getting back into Europe's elite competition now likely rests on them winning the tournament.

But he returned just in time to see in-form Cristiano Ronaldo grab his second goal of the match - and 33 of the season - to secure a 2-1 victory.

A sloppy pass out from the back by Anaitz Arbilla conceded possession to Modric, who quickly picked out Ronaldo.

Eibar equalized in the 50th when defender Ivan Ramis broke free of Sergio Ramos to head home a corner kick by Pedro Leon. He chested the ball down and slammed it in at the near post.

Sergio Ramos thundered a shot wide after good defending from Ramis, while Ronaldo was denied his second goal by a fantastic save from Dmitrovic and Modric fired straight at the Serbian as Los Blancos improved just before the break.

From the resulting corner, Bale got above the Eibar defence, only to divert his glancing header wide of the post, but the opportunity suggested that the visitors were starting to up the tempo.

REAL MADRID defender Raphael Varane was forced after a nasty clash of heads with Eibar forward Kike Garcia.

Isco and Kroos made way for Benzema and Lucas Vazquez with 19 minutes left but Eibar had two golden chances to score a second. They would soon prove costly misses.

But a defensive error allowed Dani Carvajal to cross and Ronaldo headed in.
