Ronaldo Scores Twice In Real Madrid Win

Sports Burst – Back to Reality for Real

Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo help Real Madrid battle their way to a 2-1 win over Eibar in Saturday's clash in La Liga.

However, Ronaldo seized on a mistake from Eibar's defender Anaitz Arbilla and used a brilliant pass from Luka Modric to find the back of the net in the 33rd minute.

Ivan Ramis headed in a deserved equaliser shortly after half-time but Ronaldo popped up six minutes from time to convert Dani Carvajal's cross, leaving Zidane delighted.

His double means Ronaldo has now scored in seven consecutive games and has a remarkable 13 goals overall in that period.

Azulgranas continued to open up Real as Jordan nodded Leon's free-kick wide of the post on the half-hour mark, but there were signs from the visitors as Gareth Bale was denied by goalkeeper Dmitrovic after being played through by Marcelo. He knows that he's going to score, he's very positive.

Luck appeared to have deserted Madrid after they wasted several chances, with Ronaldo among those guilty, but the Ballon d'Or holder produced an emphatic late header with his 17th goal in 10 games, moving them to within four points of Atletico, who face Celta Vigo on Sunday.

BTW - the Wolves are now 6th in the super-stacked Western Conference , so it's unlikely. but crazier things have happened. I'm wholeheartedly invested, even though I just got here. "We just thought he could help the team", Thibodeau said.

But he was back on the pitch to see Cristiano Ronaldo score his second goal of the game with what turned out to be the victor.

Real are 12 points behind leaders Barcelona, who travel to bottom club Malaga on Saturday evening. He is a different player, a special player.

Tiny Eibar are in contention for a European place next season and made the better start to the game, with Zidane admitting his side struggled in the opening stages.

Isco and Kroos made way for Benzema and Lucas Vazquez with 19 minutes left but Eibar had two golden chances to score a second.

Real Madrid have won their three league trips to Eibar, scoring 10 goals on aggregate (3.3 on average).
