Eibar 1-4 Real Madrid

Karim Benzema
Karim Benzema had not scored in his previous seven La Liga games

Karim Benzema scored twice as Real Madrid overcame the absence of injured Cristiano Ronaldo and suspended Gareth Bale to beat Eibar.

The striker scored from a rebound after Yoel had saved his initial effort and then turned home James Rodriguez's free-kick to double Real's lead.

Benzema set up the third with a cross which Rodriguez slid home over Yoel.

Marco Asensio scored a fourth after Rodriguez's effort hit the post before a late Ruben Pena consolation.

Real briefly went top of the table, but Barcelona's 5-0 win over Celta Vigo later on Saturday restored their one-point lead.
