Spanish LaLiga match report Eibar v Real Madrid 10 March 2018

Share

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane revealed defender Sergio Ramos had to remove himself from the pitch during his side's 2-1 win over Eibar on Saturday afternoon for around 10 second-half minutes after a Gary Lineker-esque trouser incident.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored more than 30 goals in each of the last nine campaigns in all competitions.

"He is an important player for us and what he has done, he has done very well".

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.

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.

Real responded immediately with a good passing move resulting in Modric laying off for Ronaldo but his effort flew over the crossbar, before the Croatian dragged another shot wide of the post after a driving run.

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

However, Ronaldo was perfectly placed late on to snatch the win for the visitors, as Dani Carvajal's cross found its way to the forward with five minutes remaining.

First, the unmarked Takashi Inui headed over from seven yards out and then Kike Garcia hit the side-netting with only Keylor Navas to beat. Valencia tightened their grip on fourth place in the standings and took a giant leap towards returning to the Champions League by winning 2-0 at Sevilla, opening up an 11-point gap with the Andalusians in fifth place.
