Cristiano Ronaldo Brace Sees Real Madrid Past Eibar in La Liga

11 March 2018

Zinedine Zidane praised Real Madrid's character after Saturday's 2-1 victory at Eibar and said two-goal Cristiano Ronaldo was "from another galaxy".

The win leaves Madrid third in La Liga, four points behind Atletico Madrid and 12 points off Barcelona at the top of the table.

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.

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

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

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. Sergio Ramos lost his man at a corner and Ramis nodded in from six yards.

Eibar: Marko Dmitrov 8, Ander Capa 7, Ivan Ramis 8, Anaitz Arbilla 6, Jose Angel Cote 6, Gonzalo Escalante 7, Dani Garcia 8, Takashi Inui 7, Joan Jordan 8, Pedro Leon 7, Kike 7.

Ronaldo should have restored the advantage but failed to convert an excellent Bale cross and from the resulting corner, Bale flashed a glancing header just wide of the post. Subs: Nacho Fernandez (for Varane, 28) 5, Karim Benzema (for Kroos, 71) 5, Lucas Vasquez (for Isco, 71) 6. His whipped cross found the leaping Ronaldo and the Portugese made no mistake.
