Karim Benzema and Luka Modric are performing at an extremely high level and the latter was once again Real Madrid's conductor in chief in their hard-fought victory over Eibar on Sunday, while the former made the difference in the final third.
But who were the other star performers?
✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCE
Luka Modric: 8.3
What a renaissance the Croatian is enjoying at the moment. Modric was once again the best player on the pitch by some distance here in every aspect.
Not only was his winning goal special, lashing into the roof of the net from the edge of the area after good work from Benzema, he rolled back the years in other ways.
He completed four dribbles, more than any other player on the pitch, while creating another Big Chance for a team-mate. He won 1/1 tackle, 1/1 aerial duels and 6/9 ground duels. Modric has staked his claim and he is going nowhere.
⭐ STAR MAN
Karim Benzema: 9.4
Zinedine Zidane needed a response from his team in the last fortnight and thanks to veterans like Benzema, they have been given a spark.
The Frenchman's goals fired Los Blancos into the last 16 of the Champions League earlier in the month, and once again his early goal set the tone for Madrid to grind out the win.
Even more impressive was his tenaciousness to snake down the goal-line and assist for Luka Modric to smash home, before ensuring a hand in every goal by laying on the clincher for Lucas Vazquez in injury time. He is, quite simply, Real Madrid's most important player.
