  • Sports Burst – Back to Reality for Real

Ronaldo scored a brace for Real Madrid vs Eibar on Saturday, extending a superb run in the last two months as Los Blancos earned a 2-1 victory.

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.

The Spain global had been partly at fault for Eibar equalising early in the second half through Ivan Ramis, with Madrid's defence guilty of producing a sloppy performance.

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.

Madrid beat a PSG side missing an injured Neymar in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash on Tuesday to confirm their place in the quarter-finals.

Eibar's goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic first prevented Bale from getting Real on the scoreboard, while defender Ander Capa anticipated Ronaldo's move to eliminate the danger.

"He knows he's going to score, he's unique and special".

Ronaldo has roared back from a feeble start to the season, when he scored just once in his first eight league games, to reach 18 goals in the campaign.

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.

Zidane added: 'He's from another galaxy.

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.

Ronaldo's goals were his 17th and 18th in the league this season.
