The first 30 minutes was dominated by the home side.
They created several chances to break the impasse but against the run of play, a lovely Luka Modric pass sliced through the Eibar defence for Cristiano Ronaldo to open the scoring.
Pedro Leon’s corner was headed home by Ivan Ramis to level 5 minutes after the restart, but Ronaldo finally doubled his tally after earlier being denied by 2 brilliant saves from Marko Dmitrovic to seal all 3 points.
Madrid continued in their struggle as Eibar pressed & the home side were inches from taking the lead 4 minutes later when a teasing cross from Takashi Inui almost found Kike at the near post, but he couldn’t convert.
The visitors were ahead after thirty-four minutes when Modric stopped a pass from Anaitz Arbilla before playing a splendid through-ball for Ronaldo to score at the near post.
Kike fired just wide following another quick break from the hosts, but the reigning Spanish champions proved their quality to move ahead with 7 minutes remaining as Ronaldo headed home Dani Carvajal’s dazzling cross.
