Ronaldo brace earns Madrid win at Eibar

Portuguese superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo netted twice for Real Madrid on Saturday as the La Liga champions sealed a 2-1 victory at Eibar.

The win followed Real’s Champions League win at Paris St-Germain, by which they secured qualification for the quarter-finals.

Eibar started well in the game, but Ronaldo got his side ahead with a neat finish from Luka Modric’s ball in the 34th minute.

The hosts equalised five minutes into the second half when defender Ivan Ramis headed in for Eibar and it looked like they would secure a point.

But a defensive error allowed Dani Carvajal to cross and Ronaldo headed in his 33rd goal of the season.

The reigning World best player, who scored in the 2-1 win at PSG last Tuesday, has now scored 13 goals in his last seven games.
