BARCELONA, Spain (AP) – Cristiano Ronaldo scored for a 19th and 20th time in the Spanish football league this season after setting up Real Madrid’s opening goal in a 4-0 win today at Eibar to stay top of the table.

Ronaldo has scored in all 11 league matches he has played in this campaign and has 25 goals from 18 games in all competitions.

The Ballon d’Or holder passed from an apparent offside position for James Rodriguez to head in Madrid’s first goal in the 23rd minute.

Madrid resisted the push by its modest hosts until Ronaldo put the result beyond doubt two minutes before half-time.

Karim Benzema added a third goal from Rodriguez’s pass in the 69th before Ronaldo got his second from the penalty spot in the 83rd.
