Ramos went off on minute 73 before Ronaldo had scored his second goal to give Real Madrid all three points in a 2-1 win.

And Eibar's start gave every indication that Zidane's men were in for a long day, as they troubled through Leon in the first minute, the former Madrid winger's cross almost finding Kike Garcia.

With two goals for Real Madrid vs Eibar on Saturday, Ronaldo has averaged 1.7 goals per match over his last 10 appearances.

Eibar's goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic first prevented Bale from getting Real on the scoreboard, while defender Ander Capa anticipated Ronaldo's move to eliminate the danger.

A sloppy pass out from the back by Anaitz Arbilla conceded possession to Luka Modric who quickly picked out Ronaldo with a sublime bending pass. Ronaldo chested the ball down and slammed it in at the near post.

The visitors unsuccessfully sought the equalizer before the break, but all they got were several corners.

Eibar responded well to going a goal behind, though, and restored parity just minutes into the second half, with Ivan Ramis losing Sergio Ramos from a corner kick to head past the helpless Keylor Navas.

But, with Ramos back on the pitch Cristiano Ronaldo headed in his second of the game as Real snatched a 2-1 win. The result strengthened Real's position in the top three.

The hosts nearlty took a surpising lead after two minutes but an un-marked Pedro Leon sent a header of the crossbar from close range.

Despite the victory, Zidane's men remain 12 points shy of league leaders Barcelona and four short of Atletico Madrid, and they have played a game more than both of their rivals.
