Real Madrid's Zinedine Zidane: Cristiano Ronaldo from another galaxy

Luka Modric to Arsenal Gunners table offer Cristiano Ronaldo worried

After almost half an hour, Real's coach Zinedine Zidane was forced to make the first change, bringing in Nacho for Raphael Varane, who left the field after a skull-to-skull collision with Kike Garcia. Ivan Ramis had equalised for Eibar shortly after half-time.

Real now sit just four points behind Atletico in the standings, while Eibar remain in eighth despite a valiant effort against the defending champions.

"This is a very hard ground to come to and they know how to play here".

Isco saw a 23rd minute shot blocked inside the Eibar box, but after Joan Jordan saw his header from a Pedro Leon free-kick fly just wide of the target, Real found themselves in the lead, very much against the run of play.

Spain worldwide 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 Ronaldo's two goals mean he has now scored in seven consecutive games and boasts a remarkable 13 goals overall in that period.

They were below their best and rode their luck late on when Eibar should have converted a pair of excellent chances, before Ronaldo made them pay.

Madrid - who lost Raphael Varane to a head injury - gained a foothold, though, with Gareth Bale forcing the approaching Marko Dmitrovic into action in the 32nd minute.

Eibar continued to threaten though and was nearly in following an under-hit backpass but Navas was out quickly to deny Kike.

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

The tiny Basque club continued to press, but they were made to rue their missed opportunities when Ronaldo steamed into the box to get on the end of a Dani Carvajal cross into the box and head home from close range.

The galloping Ronaldo met an inch-perfect cross from Daniel Caravajal to head home past Dmitrovic.
