It seemed inconceivable before the game, but Madrid enjoyed a visit to Eibar. The center of the Zidane field dominated space and play, Hazard showed his best version, the team returned to resolve the game even in the first part and ended with another win that leaves you plunged into the best moment of the last two seasons.
In Ipurua before the Eibar, with rain and cold, it seemed the day to put on the work overalls and Zidane He saved the praised Rodrygo to add a worker like Lucas Vázquez to his system. Almost as if he had received a message from the bench, Zidane's team neutralized with solvency the foreseeable ambitious start of the premises, moved the ball with speed and generated good situations for their attack players.
From the beginning, Eibar presented its invariable high blood pressure, but Madrid responded with intensity and discipline, He found solutions in the creation and generated danger based on speed and precision.
Hazard It was erected from the beginning as the best partner that Benzema could find and, between the two, they resolved the match in less than five minutes, in the first time that Madrid repeats with a satisfactory feeling this season.
The other piece that varied Zidane was in the center of the field, Modric by Kroos before the need for the Valverde team. The Uruguayan generated the play of the first goal, another potential arrival to the attack of the player that gives amplitude to the white core led to a rejection that fell to a Benzema who is already the top scorer in La Liga.
Three minutes later, Hazard again brought to light a De Blasis who, without the slightest intention, made an unquestionable penalty on the Belgian. Before the 20th minute, Sergio Ramos got 0-2 and the party was sentenced, for the result and for the good feelings of Madrid.
Hazard's growth in the match did not decrease, exhibited fluency with the ball, overflow and self-confidence. Each ball that reached the Belgian was a nightmare for De Blasis and for Mendilibar on the bench.
The decomposition of Eibar was completed with another penalty, from Cote on Lucas Vázquez, as clear as the previous one, which transformed Benzema to place the third goal before half an hour. It was after a collective play that reflected the superiority of a dominant Madrid, omnipresent in the core and with the monopoly of the creation of danger, with another master pass from Hazard that left Lucas Vázquez in frank advantage.
Eibar made a reaction threat in the first half discount, but in the resumption Hazard showed that Madrid was going to dedicate itself to exploit the spaces behind the back of the Eibarresa defense.
Those of Mendilibar complied with the script of territorial dominance, more for dignity than for belief, with the connivance of a Madrid with an increasingly relaxed game. It was a matter of waiting until the fourth goal, and came after another past center of Mendy, among constant superiors of the whites, with a shot from Valverde.
