Whistling always affects players — Real Madrid's Nacho

According to the same story, Chelsea FC, Real Madrid and Hazard himself are close to reaching a final agreement for the Belgian playmaker to move to the Bernabeu and link up with Zinedine Zidane.

Benzema has been Madrid's best player in an otherwise disappointing season, when most of his teammates have played poorly. Amid the general apathy through much of the first hour, Karim Benzema again stood out with his goal and general leadership on the pitch. They are also eliminated from the Champions League by Ajax, who simply outplayed them in the second leg of their Round of 16 fixture.

Since his return as Madrid boss last month, Zinedine Zidane has changed up the number one spot a fair few times.

Benzema cancelled out an opening goal by Eibar's Marc Cardona before grabbing the victor in the 81st minute.

"They had two goals and one for us, Madrid have not played well yet you know they will have their chances".

DF Raphael Varane, 5 - The totally unfocused performance of a player seriously considering taking on a "new challenge" elsewhere - most obviously when standing and watching as Eibar opened the scoring nearly in slow motion.

Eibar finished 18th their debut La Liga season back in 2014-15 and would have immediately dropped out of the league had Elche not been relegated instead due to financial issues. In came Nacho, Federico Valverde, Isco and Bale. His inexperience showed though, in his ability to link play and get the team flowing. No, that's why the second half was very good, we took initiative.

Among Madrid's worst performers in the first half was reportedly-unsettled galactico Bale, who was whistled even before missing an early one-on-one with Eibar keeper Marko Dmitrovic.

"Karim is having a great season and he's scoring a lot of goals".

Bale's first involvement in the game did not help his cause: receiving a pass in his own half in the third minute, he miscontrolled the ball, allowing it to run between his legs.

Eibar lost center back Ivan Ramis to an apparent leg injury, just before Benzema leveled in the 59th when he headed in a cross by Marco Asensio.
