Benzema and Ramos' double strike in three minutes
Real Madrid were at their best in the opening exchanges of the match. It has not always been like this season, especially away from home, but they put daylight between themselves and Eibar inside 20 minutes.
Benzema put Zidane's men ahead after 17 minutes. He picked up a loose ball after Modric's shot was blocked and the Frenchman hit a left footed strike into the corner. He hit home after a combination of a Valverde touch and a Dmitrovic clearance.
The goal was nothing more than what Real Madrid deserved. In fact, three minutes later, they doubled their lead.
Hazard won a clear penalty off De Blasis. The defender was beaten by the Belgian and he fouled the ex-Chelsea man. The referee did not hesitate in pointing to the spot.
Sergio Ramos stepped up to take it and he sent the goalie the wrong way to make it 0-2.
