Eibar's Ivan Ramis had equalised in between to give the home side hope.

After the intermission, and with a goal in their pocket, Real Madrid tried to slow the game's pace, but Eibar did not allow them to.

The win has now temporarily closed the gap between Real and their fierce rivals Atletico Madrid to four points as Zidane's side look to stay in touching distance of the top two.

Real Madrid are on the surge for an unprecedented third Champions League crown in three years, having once again advanced to the quarter-finals of the competition.

Ronaldo couldn't poke a 54th minute shot with the outside of his boot on target following some good build-up play, while Modric probably should have passed to an unmarked Ronaldo at the back post after breaking through the Eibar defence, and pulling his shot just wide.

"He's an important player and there are other players in the team that are also important", Zidane told a news conference ahead of his side's Liga game away to Eibar on Saturday.

Memo: No Tanks, 'Older' Aircraft at Trump's Military Parade
The planned route for the parade will be from the White House to the Capitol Building, which is 1.8 miles long. Trump's military parade is estimated to cost around $30 million in taxpayer money, according to Politico .

But he returned just in time to see in-form Cristiano Ronaldo grab his second goal of the match - and 33 of the season - to secure a 2-1 victory.

The Portugal captain was the main man, as Madrid ousted Paris Saint-Germain from the Champions League in midweek and opened scoring again with a fine finish from Luka Modric's pass.

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. They would soon prove costly misses.

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 he made no mistake.

Sergio Ramos simply couldn't hold out for full time when his stomach began urging him to visit the bathroom late on in Real Madrid's La Liga clash with Eibar.
