Real Madrid Concerned After Raphael Varane Sustains Head Injury During Eibar Win

Sports Burst – Back to Reality for Real

Eibar pushed Madrid back in the first half but were made to pay for a mistake on the half-hour when Luka Modric set up Ronaldo to open the scoring. Ivan Ramis had equalised for Eibar shortly after half-time.

Despite losing Varane, Madrid were able to notch a narrow 2-1 win over Eibar thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo double which included a late strike to earn them the win.

The Portuguese forward now has 14 league goals in his last eight matches and has scored in each of his last seven games in all competitions, netting 13 in total in that sequence.

With 50 minutes on the clock, Ramis headed home unchallenged from the resultant corner from Pedro Leon.

It happens to the best of them, just ask Gary Lineker.

But Ronaldo proved the difference again, the 33-year-old taking his tally for the season to 35 goals in 37 appearances.

Gareth Bale started up front alongside Ronaldo, while Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, fit enough only to come off the bench in midweek, returned.

The former Tottenham star had missed the last six matches through injury but slotted back in midfield alongside Casemiro and the returning Toni Kroos easily and gave Real calmness and vision on the ball that they have lacked in his absence. Sergio Ramos lost his man at a corner and Ramis nodded in from six yards.

Eibar showed no signs of sitting back and nearly went ahead on 82 minnutes but Kike Garcia sent his low strike just wide of the upright.

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 bullet header from Dani Carvajal's cross in the 84th minute earned Madrid the three points.
