Real Madrid eased the pain of their shock defeat at Wolfsburg in the Champions League as Cristiano Ronaldo scored and provided two assists in a resounding 4-0 win over Eibar.
James Rodriguez opened the scoring from a free kick after just four minutes and Madrid got all four goals before the break. Lucas Vazquez and Jese added to the scoring with the help of passes from Ronaldo, who grabbed Madrid’s third of the afternoon to move on to 30 Primera Division goals for the season.
Madrid kept up the pressure on title rivals Atletico and Barcelona thanks to a sixth consecutive league win, while Eibar stretched their winless run to eight games, although the Basques remain in mid-table.
