Karim Benzema scored brace as Real Madrid cruise past Eibar 4-0 in the La Liga encounter at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua on Saturday night.

Former France international put the Los Blancos ahead in the 17 minutes when he pounced on a loose ball just outside the six-yard box and slotted into a gaping net before Sergio Ramos doubled his side lead from the penalty spot three minutes later after Eden Hazard was fouled inside the box.

Benzema added a penalty of his own around the half-hour mark when the French striker firing home after Lucas Vazquez was fouled.

And Federico Valverde added a fourth on 61 minutes from a Luka Modric assist to complete the scoring.
