It was a busy day for the striker who also had two goals disallowed, missed two easy chances and hit the post.

Marc Cardona sent Eibar ahead in the 39th minute, lofting over Keylor Navas after a good team move.

However Marco Asensio crossed for Benzema to head in before Toni Kroos repeated the trick for the Frenchman to nod home the winner in the final stages.

Madrid are 10 points behind leaders Barcelona, and 13 ahead of fourth place Getafe, hanging in limbo until the end of the season.
