However, Ronaldo was perfectly placed late on to snatch the win for the visitors, as Dani Carvajal's cross found its way to the forward with five minutes remaining.

Real Madrid are third in the Liga standings on 57 points, 12 behind runaway leaders Barcelona, who visit basement club Malaga later Sunday.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates his second goal beside Lucas Vazquez after scoring during the Spanish La Liga soccer match between Real Madrid and SD Eibar at Ipurua stadium, in Eibar, northern Spain, Saturday, March 10, 2018. Ivan Ramis had equalised for Eibar shortly after half-time. Eibar was left in eighth place.

Eibar pushed Madrid back in the first half but were made to pay for a mistake on the half-hour when Luka Modric set up Ronaldo to open the scoring.

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.

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

Ronaldo almost doubled Real's lead just before the break but goalkeeper Marko Dmitrović produced a superb to keep out Portuguese's effort from distance.

The Spain global had been partly at fault for Eibar equalising early in the second half through Ivan Ramis, with Madrid's defence guilty of producing a sloppy performance.

Eibar started the second half with confidence, and after a fierce cross from Gonzalo Escalante forced a diving save from Navas, the home side was soon level.

Real were ragged early on as Takashi Inui, Kike Garcia and Joan Jordan all went close to giving Eibar the lead.

Ronaldo should have restored the advantage but failed to convert an excellent Bale cross and from the resulting corner, Bale flashed a glancing header just wide of the post.
