Great header

Eibar 1-2 Real Madrid

Real Madrid remain third with that win but are now 12 points behind leaders Barcelona, who play Malaga at 19:45 GMT.

FULL-TIME

Eibar 1-2 Real Madrid

And that's it!

Real Madrid have been made to work for this one but two Cristiano Ronaldo goals secured the win.

Eibar 1-2 Real Madrid

Good reflexes by Keylor Navas as he adjusts quickly to hold a deflected Jordán strike.

Eibar pressing, but it might be too little too late.

SUBSTITUTION

Eibar 1-2 Real Madrid

Eibar make a couple of changes as Gonzalo Escalante and Takashi Inui are replaced by Pape Diop and Charles Dias.

Eibar 1-2 Real Madrid

A tad harsh on Eibar, who have been Real Madrid's equals for much of this game but make a mistake in defence against this side and you get punished.

GOAL - Eibar 1-2 Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo

I had to write that previous entry, didn't I?

Another defensive mistake and Real Madrid pounce as a clearance hits a Real player and the ball is worked to Dani Carvajal, who crosses for Cristiano Ronaldo to power in a header.

Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

Into the final 10 minutes and it feels like Eibar were conserving their energy for one last push. Suddenly they are a lot more positive and pressing Real back a bit.

CLOSE!

Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

BIG chance!

Eibar break quickly and Kike is in on goal but his first touch is poor and he panics, lashing the ball into the sidenetting.

Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

Karim Benzema in action for the first time as he bends his run to try and beat the offside trap for Gareth Bale's ball. He moves a bit too early though and the flag is raised.

Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

The introduction of Karim Benzema also means we have the rare sight of the BBC playing together on the pitch.

SUBSTITUTION

Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

Zinedine Zidane wants his side to get another goal and get it soon. He makes a double change as he brings on his two best creators - Karim Benzema and Lucas Vasquez - for Toni Kroos and Isco.

Benzema and Vasquez have created 14 goals between them this season. Can they do something here?

SUBSTITUTION

Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

A blow for Eibar and a blow for Ivan Ramis. The goalscorer injured himself when trying to block Luka Modric's earlier shot and he can't continue.

Paulo Oliveira, the club's record signing, comes on and takes his place in the heart of the defence.

Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

Eibar have dropped off a bit after equalising. It looks like their positive play has sapped the energy.

GREAT SAVE!

Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

Another great save by Marko Dmitrovic. Gareth Bale comes alive down the left and plays a brilliant ball behind the defence. It's on a plate for Cristiano Ronaldo and he aims a shot towards the far post before wheeling away to celebrate, but Dmitrovic gets a hand to it. Superb save.

PENALTY APPEAL

Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

Luke Modric appeals for a penalty as his flick in the box hits Jose Ángel on the arm. Angel was pulling his arm away, no intent there and no penalty.

Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

Marcelo hits an inviting ball into the box but goalscorer Ivan Ramis is there to clear with Cristiano Ronaldo lurking.

Gareth Bale has been very quiet in this game.

Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

Belting run by Luka Modric! The midfielder forces his way into the box, brushing off Eibar players before sidefooting an effort just wide of the far post.

Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

The 6,000 or so home fans are in party mode now. A goal is the least Eibar deserve for their positive football so far in this game.

Now, could they go on and cause an upset?

GOAL - Eibar 1-1 Real Madrid

Ivan Ramis

Well then! Ramis gets better of Ramos.

Eibar win an early corner and former Wigan player Ivan Ramis gets away from Sergio Ramos and powers home a header!

Eibar 0-1 Real Madrid

Similar pattern to the start of the first half at the moment. Eibar very positive with Real Madrid having some defending to do.

KICK-OFF

Eibar 0-1 Real Madrid

Can Eibar get back into this?

The second half is under way.

Eibar 0-1 Real Madrid

If they win this, Real Madrid will remain third in the table but will be 12 points behind Barcelona, who have a game in hand.

Cristiano Rashford?

There's a pretty big game going on in the Premier League right now with Manchester United hosting Liverpool.

Marcus Rashford has just given the hosts the lead with a finish that had shades of Ronaldo about it.

Follow that game here.

YELLOW CARD

Eibar 0-1 Real Madrid

Ivan Ramis is booked for Eibar as he has a whinge at the referee as he makes his way into the tunnel.

HALF-TIME

Eibar 0-1 Real Madrid

Real Madrid have the lead, but the scoreline doesn't reflect the performance on the pitch with Eibar having the better for long periods.

Eibar 0-1 Real Madrid

Marko Dmitrovic is called upon again, this time to deny Luka Modric's strike.

The Eibar had a bit more time for this one, with Modric shooting from distance.

GREAT SAVE!

Eibar 0-1 Real Madrid

Brilliant save! Marko Dmitrovic flicks out a strong hand to deflect Cristiano Ronaldo's fierce strike from the edge of the area.

Eibar 0-1 Real Madrid

Real Madrid win a couple of corners in quick succession, the second of which sees Sergio Ramos power a header wide. The defender really should have done better though, was a bit of a free header.

Eibar 0-1 Real Madrid

That's knocked the stuffing out of the Eibar players and fans a bit and Real Madrid have suddenly come alive.

The hosts really don't want to concede again before the break because that will be game over.

GOAL - Eibar 0-1 Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo

He's not stopped this time!

All that good work by Eibar is undone as they give the ball away inside their half, Luka Modric plays a brilliant ball to find Cristiano Ronaldo, who takes a touch before thumping in a low finish.

Goal number 32 of the season.

Eibar 0-0 Real Madrid

Oh Real Madrid should be ahead but great team defending by Eibar thwarts them!

Eibar's high line is caught out for the first time as Gareth Bale gets to a long ball forward. Marko Dmitrovic is quick off his line to block Bale's shot, the loose ball falls to Cristiano Ronaldo but a defender does just enough to block his shot.

YELLOW CARD

Eibar 0-0 Real Madrid

The referee has let this game flow so far. There's not been much stoppages for free-kicks but he produces his first yellow card of the game as Gareth Bale sticks a high boot in on Jose Angel.

SUBSTITUTION

Eibar 0-0 Real Madrid

A blow for Real Madrid as they have to make an early change. Raphael Varane appears to have picked up and injury so he is replaced by Nacho.

Eibar 0-0 Real Madrid

Dani Garcia drives a cross into the box but Real Madrid head clear. They've been doing a lot of that.

Eibar 0-0 Real Madrid

Look at these stats! Real Madrid with just 40% of the possession so far.

"Eibar! Eibar! Eibar!" chant the home fans. They are loving this.

CLOSE!

Eibar 0-0 Real Madrid

Eibar are really lovely to watch when they break forward and they put together an eye-catching move as Takashi Inui cleverly backheels to Kike, who bends an effort towards the far post but Keylor Navas gets a touch to put it behind.

Eibar 0-0 Real Madrid

Inventive clearance by Kelyor Navas as Sergio Ramos loses his man and the Real Madrid keeper is off his line quicker to head away the danger.
