Cristiano Ronaldo was Real Madrid's hero yet again as the in-form Portugal star scored twice in Saturday's 2-1 win at Eibar, including the late victor that prevents them losing further ground on LaLiga's top two.

The home side dominated the first 30 minutes and created several chances to break the deadlock but against the run of play, a delightful Luka Modric pass sliced through the Eibar defence for Cristiano Ronaldo to open the scoring.

Eibar equalized in the 50th when defender Ivan Ramis broke free of Sergio Ramos to head home a corner kick by Pedro Leon.

But it was right back Dani Carvajal who intercepted a pass by Leon and crossed for Ronaldo to head in his second goal with six minutes remaining.

Ronaldo almost scored his second of the game in the 62nd minute from a delightful Gareth Bale cross but his effort was saved by the Eibar goalkeeper. "He knows that he will score".

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.

"This victory makes me feel very good, because they were the better side for a while, they played very well", added the coach.

Eibar appeared to target Madrid's full-backs and their crosses from both flanks continued to trouble, even if they often just missed the intended target.

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

Alves found success in Barcelona during his seven seasons at the club where he won three Champions League titles in 2009, 2011 and 2015.
