Cristiano Ronaldo continued his scoring run by netting a brace to guide Real Madrid to a 2-1 win over Eibar at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Despite starting poorly, Cristiano Ronaldo gave Real Madrid a first half lead, getting on the end of a through ball played from deep by Luka Modric to smash home a clever finish at the neat post.

Eibar conceded possession in manner like they did in the build-up to Real's first goal and the Portuguese nodded home the crucial goal off a Dani Carvajal cross.

Ronaldo now has 17 goals in his last 10 games in all competitions and his 18 league goal tally has him closing in on Lionel Messi who has 24.

Madrid - who lost Raphael Varane to a head injury - gained a foothold, though, with Gareth Bale forcing the approaching Marko Dmitrovic into action in the 32nd minute.

The five-time Ballon D'Or victor has scored 14 goals in his last eight LaLiga matches after netting just four times before the turn of the year. What he does, is always very positive for us; he knows he is going to score.

Madrid remained third, 12 points behind leader Barcelona which visits Malaga later Saturday.

Currently, the club is in the best shape possible and their form means they can go all the way to make more history in the Champions League.

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

That result sees Real gain three points on city rivals Atletico, though they are still four points adrift of second spot and Diego Simeone's side have a game in hand.

Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane sent on Karim Benzema and Lucas Vazquez to look for the victor.

The Real Madrid vs Eibar match was just further proof he's once again at the top of his game.

After securing a 5-2 aggregate victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last-16 on Tuesday, Real swapped the Parc des Princes for the smallest ground in La Liga, with a capacity of just over 7 000.
