Ronaldo leads Real Madrid to 2-1 win over Eibar

Irene MckinneyMar 11, 2018

The incident came after 30 minutes at the Ipurua stadium as Los Blancos squeezed past Eibar 2-1.

Ronaldo headed in an 84th-minute victor at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium, having earlier put Real in front with an emphatic near-post finish. He's a different, special player.

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

Real´s win in La Liga moves them to within four points of second-placed Atletico Madrid, who play at home to Celta Vigo on Sunday.

Los Blancos come into the clash on a high after they defeated Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 on Tuesday and secured their spot in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Ronaldo couldn't poke a 54th minute shot with the outside of his boot on target following some good build-up play, while Modric probably should have passed to an unmarked Ronaldo at the back post after breaking through the Eibar defence, and pulling his shot just wide.

"He is an important player for us and what he has done, he has done very well". The Welshmen though glanced his header from the resultant corner just wide of the target.

The home side continued to control the early stages of the fixture and in the 19th minute, Kike Garcia and Takashi Inui linked up before Garcia saw his 25-yard curler tipped behind for a corner by Keylor Navas.

Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane sent on Karim Benzema and Lucas Vazquez to look for the victor. They would soon prove costly misses.

The irrepressible striker however, had the final say, meeting a cross from Dani Carvajal in the area andpowering the ball beyond the Serbian goalkeeper in the 84th minute, scoring a 13th goal in his last seven games in all competitions. His whipped cross found the leaping Ronaldo and he made no mistake. The result strengthened Real's position in the top three.

"When he has two goals, he wants three".

When nature calls you've got to answer, even if you're playing for Real Madrid.
