La Liga: Real Madrid back to winning ways at Eibar

Sunday 5th March , 2017 6:51 am

Karim Benzema scored twice as Real Madrid overcame the absence of injured Cristiano Ronaldo and suspended Gareth Bale to beat Eibar.

The striker scored from a rebound after Yoel had saved his initial effort and then turned home James Rodriguez’s free-kick to double Real’s lead.

Benzema set up the third with a cross which Rodriguez slid home over Yoel.

Marco Asensio scored a fourth after Rodriguez’s effort hit the post before a late Ruben Pena consolation.

Real briefly went top of the table, but Barcelona’s 5-0 win over Celta Vigolater on Saturday restored their one-point lead.
