Goals from Karim Benzema, James Rodriguez and Marco Asensio saw Zinedine Zidane's men beat Eibar and reach a couple of all-time bests

Real Madrid's latest 4-1 victory over Eibar saw them set two records for their goalscoring prowess.

The European champions cruised to victory away from home thanks to Karim Benzema's double and further efforts from James Rodriguez and Marco Asensio.

Ronaldo-less Madrid stroll past Eibar

And having hit the target once again to retake top spot in La Liga, they have now scored in 45 consecutive games in all competitions - the best-ever run for a team from the Spanish top flight.

In addition, Zinedine Zidane's men have also equalled their longest run of games with a goal in La Liga alone, with that streak now standing at 37 matches.

They plundered four at Eibar despite the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo, who is their top scorer once again this season with 18 goals in the league.

Benzema has led the way in the Champions League, scoring five, and the Frenchman also has seven to his name in La Liga.

Alvaro Morata and Gareth Bale have chipped in with eight and seven respectively in the division Madrid are attempting to win for the first time since the 2011-12 season.

Madrid lead rivals Barcelona by two points at the top of the table, with surprise package Sevilla four points adrift of Los Blancos.

Real will face both teams again before the end of the season, with the next Clasico falling on April 23 before they face Jorge Sampaoli's men on the final day.
