Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as Real Madrid strolled to a 4-0 La Liga win over Eibar.
James Rodriguez gave Real a lead which was added to just before half-time by Ronaldo.
Karim Benzema made it 3-0 with 20 minutes left and Ronaldo’s penalty rounded off a comfortable success and took him to 25 goals for the season, 20 in La Liga.

Real threatened first when goalkeeper Xabier Irureta tipped Gareth Bale’s free-kick onto the top of the crossbar, Sergio Ramos lashing the rebound a long way over.
The opener came when Ronaldo superbly tricked his way into the box down the right wing. His initial cross was met by Benzema, who appeared to be offside and was well off target with his flick, but the Portugal forward stabbed the ball back across to the back post where Rodriguez headed in.
