Two-goal Ronaldo helps Real win

Red-Hot Ronaldo Fires Real Madrid Past Eibar

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Cristiano Ronaldo overtook Lionel Messi as the season's leading scorer after his brace led Real Madrid to a 2-1 win at Eibar in the Spanish league on Saturday.

Ronaldo struck against the flow of play in the 34th when Luka Modric intercepted a pass and set him up.

Eibar equalized in the 50th minute when defender Ivan Ramis broke free of Sergio Ramos to head home a corner kick by Pedro Leon.

With the score locked at 1-1 after Ivan Ramis cancelled out Cristiano Ronaldo's first-half opener, the Spain global left the field in the 73rd minute.

"We knew this was a tough place to come - they are having a good season".

It didn't matter much - Madrid were fragile and guilty of overplaying in the backline - taking plenty of chances by passing the ball across their own penalty area and back to Keylor Navas in tight areas.

We have not found our game very well, but Cristiano knows what he's doing.

"He's from another galaxy", said Real coach Zinedine Zidane of Ronaldo.

"He knows that he's going to score, he's very positive". He's a different, special player. "The numbers speak for themselves".

But it was the sudden disappearance of Ramos during the 73 minute that raised eyebrows and provoked laughter in Zidane's post-match press conference.

"He has not told me anything; but, if it's up to me, I would open the door right now", he said. You've got to recognise the performance from Eibar, who put in a great display. "We did not find our play today, had a lot of difficulties through the entire game".

Ronaldo scored twice, his second six minutes from the end, as Real won 2-1 and avoided another slip-up in La Liga. "If you lose your concentration in any moment, you pay for it". With 10 more games left in the league campaign and 15 points cushion to Barcelona at the top of the table, Real Madrid's contention in league title is virtually over.
