Cristiano Ronaldo nets two scores, Real Madrid beats Eibar

Cristiano Ronaldo nets two scores, Real Madrid beats Eibar

After the win, Real sits in the third spot with 57 points, four points behind second-placed Atletico Madrid, who are scheduled to take on Celta Vigo on Sunday.

Madrid had to dig deep but their star player was the messiah once again with two very important goals to give them all three points on the day.

"For me he's from another galaxy", Real coach Zidane said.

Ronaldo then netted the victor in the 84th minute to keep Real's slim LaLiga title hopes alive.

They know that the player, who is now undergoing treatment for his injury in Brazil, hasn't settled in well in the Ligue 1. His stats speak for themselves.

"Luka was out for nearly three weeks, came back and played very well", he said.

The early loss of Raphael Varane with a head injury upset Real's back four but still, seasoned campaigner Nacho came off the bench. Ronaldo used his chest to control Modric's pass before scoring.

Sergio Ramos went missing for about 10 minutes in the latter stages of Real Madrid's La Liga game against Eibar on Saturday.

First, the unmarked Takashi Inui headed over from seven yards out and then Kike Garcia hit the side-netting with only Keylor Navas to beat.

Ronaldo seemed destined to restore their lead when Bale passed into the area just after the hour mark, but Dmitrovic produced a sensational save to deny him.

But for Ronaldo's clinical instincts in front of goal, that slip-up should have proved costly and Eibar deserved something from a match in which they poured their heart and soul into.

Ronaldo struck a fine goal in the 84th minute making it 2-1 for his side. 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.
