Ronaldo scored a brace for Real Madrid vs Eibar on Saturday, extending a superb run in the last two months as Los Blancos earned a 2-1 victory.

Ronaldo's goals were his 17th and 18th in the league this season.

Luck appeared to have deserted Madrid after they wasted several chances, with Ronaldo among those guilty, but the Ballon d'Or holder produced an emphatic late header with his 17th goal in 10 games, moving them to within four points of Atletico, who face Celta Vigo on Sunday.

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 appeared to target Madrid's full-backs and their crosses from both flanks continued to trouble, even if they often just missed the intended target.

Modric was excellent throughout, the Croatian providing a sublime pass with the outside of his foot for Ronaldo's opener.

"He is an important player for us, and what he has done, he has done very well".

A sloppy pass out from the back by Anaitz Arbilla conceded possession to Modric, who quickly picked out Ronaldo.

In front, Real improved but five minutes into the second half and Eibar were level.

And from the resulting corner, Ramis lost Sergio Ramos and headed beyond the helpless Navas to equalise.

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. His whipped cross found the leaping Ronaldo and the Portugese made no mistake.
