Spanish LaLiga match report Eibar v Real Madrid 10 March 2018

Eibar equalised five minutes after the break through Ivan Ramis following a corner-kick.

In the 2016-17 season, of Ronaldo's 42 goals for Real Madrid, 26 (62 percent) came in the second half of the season, including 16 after March.

Ronaldo, who scored in the 2-1 win at PSG on Tuesday as Real Madrid moved into the Champions League quarter-finals, has now scored 13 goals in his last seven games.

But Ronaldo proved the difference again, the 33-year-old taking his tally for the season to 35 goals in 37 appearances.

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

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.

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.

Eventually Madrid appeared to exert a degree of control and Ronaldo - following a moment of Luka Modric inspiration - opened the scoring in the 34th minute, continuing his brilliant recent form.

Eibar started the second half with confidence, and after a fierce cross from Gonzalo Escalante forced a diving save from Navas, the home side was soon level. Sergio Ramos lost his man at a corner and Ramis nodded in from six yards.

Bale had a chance to restore Real's lead in the 63rd minute but his header sailed inches wide of the upright.

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

First Ramos saw his 42nd-minute header fly wide before Dmitrovic made a superb save to tip Ronaldo's deflected shot over his goal.
