Zidane: "Cristiano is from another galaxy; he's a special player"

Zidane:

After a few minutes, Ramos re-emerged from the bowels of the stadium and slotted back into Madrid's back four, as they ultimately went on to win 2-1 thanks to a pair of Cristiano Ronaldo goals - number two arriving six minutes from full-time.

The deadlock was broken on 34 minutes as Luka Modric played a sublime long pass to Ronaldo, who fired home at the near post from 12-yards out.

However, Eibar managed to level matters five minutes into the second half when Iván Ramis powered a header into the bottom corner after meeting a cross from Leon.

But Ronaldo's two goals mean he has now scored in seven consecutive games and boasts a remarkable 13 goals overall in that period.

Azulgranas continued to open up Real as Jordan nodded Leon's free-kick wide of the post on the half-hour mark, but there were signs from the visitors as Gareth Bale was denied by goalkeeper Dmitrovic after being played through by Marcelo.

The five-time Ballon D'Or victor has scored 14 goals in his last eight LaLiga matches after netting just four times before the turn of the year. He knows he is going to score. He is a different player, a special player.

Real Madrid have closed the gap on second-placed Atletico Madrid with a hard-fought 2-1 win in Saturday's La Liga clash at Eibar.

They were below their best and rode their luck late on when Eibar should have converted a pair of excellent chances.

Zinedine Zidane had insisted the success in Paris was now "forgotten" and his starting line-up suggested as much, with Karim Benzema the only key player rested.

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

Ramos celebrates in the Champions League.

His double against Eibar allowed him to move into the top three scorers in the league, trailing Barcelona duo Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez on 24 and 20 respectively.
