But he was back on the pitch to see Cristiano Ronaldo score his second goal of the game with what turned out to be the victor.

And the Portugal forward took centre stage once again as Los Blancos fought hard for all three points in the Basque country.

Ronaldo put Madrid ahead in the 34th minute after Luka Modric intercepted a ball from defender Aritz Arbilla and placed a flawless pass for the Portugal forward to control with his chest and fire in.

Five minutes into the second half, Ivan Ramis drew level for Eibar with a great header off a corner by Pedro Leon.

Zidane told realmadrid.com: "He's from another planet".

"He knows he's going to score, he's unique and special. The statistics speak for themselves".

"He's very good. You have to value the opposing team, too". "If you lose your concentration in any moment, you pay for it". Today we had difficulties with the ball, technically we made a lot of mistakes in our passing, playing out from the back.

Armoured police cars, ambulances, three police helicopters and a number of fire engines were deployed to the scene. The sheriff's office reported that a shot had been fired, but there were no immediate reports of any casualties.

After securing a 5-2 aggregate victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, Real swapped the Parc des Princes for the Ipurua Municipal Stadium, the smallest in La Liga with a capacity of just over 7,000.

His double against Eibar allowed him to move into the top three scorers in the league, trailing Barcelona duo Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez on 24 and 20 respectively.

Despite starting poorly, Cristiano Ronaldo gave Real Madrid a first half lead, getting on the end of a through ball played from deep by Luka Modric to smash home a clever finish at the neat post. "They were the better team".

"This is a very hard ground to come to and they know how to play here".

And Eibar's start gave every indication that Zidane's men were in for a long day, as they troubled through Leon in the first minute, the former Madrid winger's cross almost finding Kike Garcia.

"We knew it was a complicated game".
