A Gareth Bale header and a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty gave Real a much-needed 2-0 victory over Eibar in La Liga Sunday, following their hammering by leaders Barca last weekend, and put them six points off the top of the standings. The Welshman notched up his first goal since the end of August when he nodded in a Luka Modric cross two minutes before half time against the small Basque club who have surprised this season and went into the game with one defeat from eight matches.Third-placed Real now have 27 points from 13 games, two behind Atletico Madrid, while Barca have 33 points.Villarreal have lost their way after a bright start to the season and lie sixth on 21 points, behind Deportivo La Coruna on goal difference, while Getafe are 13th and level with Rayo Vallecano on 14 points.
