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

Eibar conceded possession in manner like they did in the build-up to Real's first goal and the Portuguese nodded home the crucial goal off a Dani Carvajal cross.

Heading closer towards the business end of the season and with Madrid qualifying for the quarter finals of the Champions League, Zidane and the Madrid fans will be hoping to have Varane back sooner rather than later for what could be Real's only chance at silverware this season.

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.

But he was back on the pitch to see Cristiano Ronaldo score his second goal of the game with what turned out to be the victor.

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


Zinedine Zidane's men are however still 12 points behind leaders Barcelona.

After securing a 5-2 aggregate victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, Real swapped the Parc des Princes for the Ipurua Municipal Stadium, the smallest in La Liga with a capacity of just over 7,000.

After the win, Real sits in the third spot with 57 points, four points behind second-placed Atletico Madrid, who are scheduled to take on Celta Vigo on Sunday.

Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane sent on Karim Benzema and Lucas Vazquez to look for the victor.

Bale struck his eighth Liga goal of the season by opening the scoring in Real's 3-1 win over Getafe on Saturday, though his half-hearted celebration was also seen as a sign of his discontent at being dropped from the starting 11.

Eibar stormed into the game, pushing Real Madrid onto the other half of the field, with the visitors unable to find the spaces they needed despite their best efforts, reports Efe.
