Real Madrid vs. Eibar 2017 live stream

Substitute Karim Benzema was probably the most obvious culprit, missing the target after Cristiano Ronaldo's effort fell to him with the goal at his mercy and was nearly made to pay when Kike Enrique hit the side netting.

Eibar's Paulo Oliveira gifted Real the lead in the 18th minute when he deflected Marco Asensio's cross into his own net.

Fellow substitute Karim Benzema slipped through a brilliant pass, Marcelo spinning clear of his marker to plant a low finish across Dmitrovic and add gloss to the victory.

You can relive all the Bernabeu action as it happened with Tom Bassam's live updates below.

"We've been doing well, people (who have criticised us) forget how hard it is to play a game in La Liga, the best league in the world, you have to be patient".

This was been a wildly inconsistent season for Real Madrid in La Liga so far, winning just one of their matches at home in the Santiago Bernabeu, leading to them sitting five points adrift of first-place arch rivals Barcelona entering the weekend.

The coach brought in Asensio for Benzema, despite his staunch defence of the Frenchman on Saturday after criticism from former Spurs and Barcelona striker Gary Lineker among others, and the decision paid dividends.

The hosts went ahead when Oliveira nodded Asensio's cross past Dmitrovic under pressure from Sergio Ramos after a short corner routine.

Goalkeeper Keylor Navas has suffered a relapse of the groin strain he suffered on global duty and will be replaced by Kiko Casilla, while Theo Hernandez could also return to the side at left back if Zidane opts to give Marcelo a rest.

Earlier, Gameiro's strike earned Atletico the points in Galicia where Celta, in 10th spot, impressed but could not break down Diego Simeone's typically rock-solid backline.

However, on his first league start of the season, Kevin Gameiro fired home a loose ball from a corner from close range on 28 minutes for the only goal of the game.
