Bernabeu side keep pressure on La Liga leaders Barcelona.
Real Madrid eased to victory over Eibar without ever really having to break out in a sweat.
Carlo Ancelotti brought in Javier Hernandez to replace Karim Benzema whilst James Rodriguez was in place of Gareth Bale in a much changed Real Madrid attack.
Real Madrid were on top from the off and Cristiano Ronaldo, who else, opened the scoring after 21 minutes.
The Portuguese star lined up a free-kick which he struck sweetly though quite what Eibar keeper Xabi Irureta was thinking is hard to fathom.
The ball did swing in the air but should still not have troubled the custodian.
Ten minutes later Chicharito doubled the home side’s lead, having seen an earlier effort ruled out for offside, the loaned out Man United man enjoying a rare start.
Late in the second half youngster Jese, who had also enjoyed a rare start, fired home a third.
The forward took on his man, beat him for pace, before firing a great effort into the bottom corner.
The win reduces Barcelona’s lead over Real Madrid to just one point as Luis Enrique’s side prepare to face Sevilla in a potentially tricky encounter against the top six side.
