Zinedine Zidane labelled Cristiano Ronaldo as "from another galaxy" after the striker's double dragged Real Madrid to a 2-1 win over Eibar in La Liga on Saturday.

Ramos celebrates in the Champions League.

That result sees Real gain three points on city rivals Atletico, though they are still four points adrift of second spot and Diego Simeone's side have a game in hand.

Cristiano Ronaldo's hot streak continued as he scored twice as Real Madrid won 2-1 at Eibar today.

Tiny Eibar are in contention for a European place next season and made the better start to the game, with Zidane admitting his side struggled in the opening stages.

Toni Kroos and Luka Modric returned to the starting line up along with Gareth Bale.

A statement from White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the place and time of the meeting was still to be determined. On Thursday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi urged the United States and the DPRK to hold talks sooner rather than later.

Modric: "He's been out of the side for 20 days and he did well today".

Isco saw a 23rd minute shot blocked inside the Eibar box, but after Joan Jordan saw his header from a Pedro Leon free-kick fly just wide of the target, Real found themselves in the lead, very much against the run of play. He chested the ball down and slammed it in at the near post.

Eibar's leveller led to Real placing more emphasis on scoring a second and it soon became a game of attack versus defence as the hosts attempted to keep hold of a share of the spoils. Sergio Ramos lost his man at a corner and Ramis nodded in from six yards.

Raphael Varane was forced to come off after a clash of heads during Real Madrid's La Liga clash with Eibar on Saturday.

As Eibar floundered to take opportunities in front of goal, Real crowned an improved second-half as Dani Carvajal set up CR7 who dispatched a powerful header into the roof of the net.

Sevilla trailed Valencia by eight points before kickoff, but that gap was stretched to 11 after two goals from Rodrigo Moreno sealed a comfortable victory.
