GETTY Manchester United will need David De Gea on top form against Sevilla tonight

Zinedine Zidane insists he has no problem with Gareth Bale despite dropping the forward for Real Madrid's win over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

Ronaldo took down a superb crossfield ball from Luka Modric on the left of the pitch before smashing the ball past a stranded Marko Dmitrovic.

Ronaldo gave Real the lead when he blasted into the net in the 34th minute, but Eibar pegged the champions back when Ivan Ramis headed home from a corner in the 50th minute.

With Real chasing a victor, Ramos conspicuously went missing from the visitors' back four with 73 minutes played and the score finely poised at 1-1.

Cristiano Ronaldo's goals were his 17th and 18th in the league this season.

Overlooked for Real's two biggest games of the season so far, the indication is Zidane does not trust Bale when it matters most.

"(Ronaldo) is from another galaxy", Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. He knows he is going to score.


'The numbers speak for themselves and I'm just glad he is with us.

Real skipper Sergio Ramos is said to have found out about Ronaldo's discontent and has passed his concerns onto president Florentino Perez.

Madrid was six minutes away from dropping points when Ronaldo came through with a powerful header to send in Dani Carvajal's cross and grab victory.

The early loss of Raphael Varane with a head injury upset Real's back four but still, seasoned campaigner Nacho came off the bench. They would soon prove costly misses.

Luck appeared to have deserted Madrid after they wasted several chances, with Ronaldo among those guilty, but the Ballon d'Or holder produced an emphatic late header with his 17th goal in 10 games, moving them to within four points of Atletico, who face Celta Vigo on Sunday.

Sevilla trailed Valencia by eight points before kick-off but that gap was stretched to 11 after two goals from Rodrigo Moreno sealed a comfortable victory.
