Ramos left the field to go to the toilet after 73 minutes at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium, with the match delicately poised at 1-1.

With 50 minutes on the clock, Ramis headed home unchallenged from the resultant corner from Pedro Leon.

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.

The 33-year-old's tally for club and country this season stands at 35 goals in 37 appearances.

Torrey Smith Reportedly Traded to Panthers for Daryl Worley
He's also still on his rookie contract, so the Eagles are getting someone with a good deal of experience for a bargain price. According to multiple reports, the Eagles have agreed to trade Smith to the Carolina Panthers for cornerback Daryl Worley .

Zinedine Zidane had insisted the success in Paris was now "forgotten" and his starting line-up suggested as much, with Karim Benzema the only key player rested. What he does, is always very positive for us; he knows he is going to score. He is a different player, a special player. "The statistics speak for themselves".

The win has now temporarily closed the gap between Real and their fierce rivals Atletico Madrid to four points as Zidane's side look to stay in touching distance of the top two.

Eibar appeared to target Madrid's full-backs and their crosses from both flanks continued to trouble, even if they often just missed the intended target.

Gareth Bale started up front alongside the Portuguese, while Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, fit enough only to come off the bench in midweek, returned.

Italy worldwide Astori captained club team Fiorentina , who retired the number 13 shirt in his honour. Before the match, he said he was proud and happy for me and my new adventure with Milan.

"It's true that after 15, nearly 20 days, Luka came in and played a great game", Zidane said.

Madrid had used all three subs already, one of which saw Raphael Varane replaced by Nacho after just 28 minutes.

A sloppy pass out from the back by Anaitz Arbilla conceded possession to Modric, who quickly picked out Ronaldo.

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.
