Cristiano Ronaldo Stuns Eibar Defender With Stunning Improvisation

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al Khelaifi is reportedly due for crunch talks with star striker Neymar, in the wake of a Champions League defeat to Real Madrid that has left Los Blancos better placed than ever to land the Brazilian.

Ronaldo put Madrid ahead in the 34th minute after Luka Modric intercepted a loose ball from Eibar centre- back Aritz Arbilla and placed a ideal pass for the Portugal forward to control with his chest and fire in past Dmitrovic.

Eibar equalised five minutes after the break when Ivan Ramis headed home from Pedro Leon's corner.

In that time, Ronaldo restored Real's lead, eventually securing all-three points. The Spanish capital outfit lies at the third spot in the La Liga table a massive 15 points behind league leaders Barcelona.

Ronaldo, who scored in the 2-1 win at PSG on Tuesday as Real Madrid moved into the Champions League quarter-finals, has now scored 13 goals in his last seven games, BBC reports.

"What he has is so positive - he knows he is going to score. The numbers speak for themselves".

After the intermission, and with a goal in their pocket, Real Madrid tried to slow the game's pace, but Eibar did not allow them to.

Apart from the two well-taken goals, Ronaldo also stunned the watching crowd with a stunning improvisation while on the counter-attack.

The early loss of Raphael Varane with a head injury upset Real's back four but still, seasoned campaigner Nacho came off the bench.

The tiny Basque club continued to press, but they were made to rue their missed opportunities when Ronaldo steamed into the box to get on the end of a Dani Carvajal cross into the box and head home from close range.

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