Zidane laughs off Real 'crisis'

Karim Benzema stepped up for Real Madrid with both Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale out to down Eibar 4-1.

Gareth Bale missed out for Real Madrid as he started his two-game suspension, while Cristiano Ronaldo was not selected due to a muscular problem, leaving Lucas Vazquez and Asensio alongside Benzema in the final third.

James Rodriguez provided the cross for Benzema's second goal and the Frenchman returned the favour for his Colombian team mate to net his first league goal since September in the 29th minute.

He then squared for James, whose curling effort bounced off the post before Asensio reached the rebound and produced an impressive left-footed finish from a hard angle.

Eibar bagged a late consolation goal through Pena, but it proved too little to late and it's Real Madrid who will be taking home all three points.

Ghana global Kevin Prince Boateng took a slight dig at Cristiano Ronaldo after finally scoring his first goal against Real Madrid over the weekend.

Real Madrid broke one Barcelona record earlier this season when they went on a 40-game unbeaten streak and now, they've broken another.

"Beforehand the tie is lost, but with some marvellous circumstances.we can get ourselves back into the tie if we play very well", Enrique told Spanish TV station Movistar. "The past three or four games things haven't gone as we would want, but we are not going to look for excuses in the referees".

Clement also discussed his relationship with Welsh national boss Chris Coleman, and revealed he has had conversations about Bale in the past: "I know him well - we have shared a couple of rounds of goal and there is a mutual respect there".

"Wednesday's result was not a good one for them, but we are aware that even if they don't perform, they are still capable of easily beating you".

"I am happy with our reaction", said Zidane. "We will analyse the negatives, but to come back from 1-3 to 3-3 is a huge effort".
