Cristiano Ronaldo despair in Real Madrid 1-1 Eibar in La Liga 2016-17

Real Madrid couldn't beat Eibar today at the Bernabéu and allowed the visitors to come out of the Spanish capital with a 1-1 draw in the bag. Gareth Bale scored the Merengues' lonely goal still in the first half, but unfortunately that proved to be insufficient...

They don't wear yellow, but Eibar found a way to stretch Real Madrid's bad form to a 4th consecutive draw in all competitions, this time with a 1-1 tie for La Liga at the Santiago Bernabéu. The Merengues struggled throughout the entire game and just like in previous weeks, their finishing and defending was quite poor. The visitors were the first to draw blood in the first half, when Fran Risco was granted enough space to finish off from a free header. Madrid reacted soon after, with Bale also scoring from a header following a great assist from Cristiano Ronaldo on the left. Surprisingly, Zinedine Zidane's men failed to find the back of the net in the remaining of the game and dropped another 2 valuable points in the title race.

All Cristiano Ronaldo actions vs Eibar:

Another game and another draw, but it's hard to really point fingersin this game. Real Madrid played well for the first part, but they just couldn't break down a determined Eibar side that frustrated Los Blancos.

There were a lot of changes in this match. With the news of Modric's injury, Isco was brought into the starting lineup alongside Kroos and Kovacic. Pepe and Varane were given a run out at the back, as captain Sergio Ramos was rested as well. Danilo deputized again at left-back.

Real Madrid seemingly can't win a game at the moment, the finishing in front of goal is poor and by all accounts, the BBC seems to have gone a bit stale, especially Benzema, who looks woefully of the pace.

Eibar started well, getting a surprising goal early in the first half. Rising high to meet the ball after Pepe slightly misjudged the flight and Fran Rico sent his header down into the ground and past Keylor Navas.

Real Madrid upped the ante immediately, looking for a quick equaliser. And they got it from the head of Gareth Bale just a few minutes later. A lively looking Ronaldo dribbled right by his defender on the wing, just before playing a perfectly placed cross to the Welshman. And there it was, 1-1 at the Bernabéu.

Unfortunately that would be it. Madrid would try again and again in the second half, but they would continue to find it difficult to hit the back of the net. It's becoming a little alarming, Madrid's inability to finish in front of goal. In fact, the upcoming international break may be good, as the players can hopefully recharge and come back anew.

Real Madrid just need to tighten up and start games with far more intent. They have been allowing these games to get away from them and end up chasing a result late, but that cannot occur on a recurring basis. Now it appears that the lead they built up early this season is now completely wasted and Real Madrid probably won't have much more margin from error after this weekend...
