Real Madrid hold on to third place, still five points behind leaders Barcelona, after a 3-0 victory over Eibar on Sunday evening. Paulo Oliveira headed a Marco Asensio cross in to his own net with twenty minutes gone, and ten minutes later Asensio himself got the second after connecting with a pass from Isco. And with seven minutes to go Marcelo combined with fellow substitute Benzema to score the third.
