Zinedine Zidane refuses to rule out Gareth Bale exit after more boos

Chelsea may still be hoping they can tie the playmaker down to a new Blues deal, however, with Real Madrid planning on a major summer shake-up, Hazard's days at Stamford Bridge look to be numbered.

Karim Benzema struck twice in the second half following a goal from Marc Cardona, who scored with the first shot on target of the match in the 39th minute.

Since losing Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus last summer, it's been a hard season for the reigning European champions.

"We will see", he said.

Madrid are expected to undertake a major rebuilding job after a disappointing season, with the European champions starting the weekend 13 points behind rivals Barcelona in La Liga - and already out of both the Champions League and Copa del Rey.

This time Sergio Ramos was rested, while Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Lucas Vazquez also dropped out.

Asked if he had made any decisions on incomings and outgoings this summer, Zidane said: "No, I haven't". In came Nacho, Federico Valverde, Isco and Bale.

Among Madrid's worst performers in the first half was reportedly-unsettled galactico Bale, who was whistled even before missing an early one-on-one with Eibar keeper Marko Dmitrovic.

The hosts had the ball in the back of the net after 11 minutes when through Bale's close-range strike, however the Welshman's effort was ruled out for offside.

Madrid scored the victor without him.

Benzema nearly completed his hat-trick late on, striking the woodwork, but now has 26 goals in all competitions this season.

He should have completed his hat-trick towards the end but missed two sitters, while a post denied him from scoring again in added time, though it did not impact the result.
