MADRID (AP) -- Cristiano Ronaldo scored his Spanish league-leading 38th goal of the season to help Real Madrid ease to a 3-0 win over Eibar on Saturday and keep the pressure on Barcelona.

Madrid pulled to within one point of leader Barcelona which later visits a Sevilla side that hasn't lost at home in over a year.

Ronaldo sent a bouncing free kick over the wall and beyond goalkeeper Xabi Irureta in the 21st minute at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Little-used striker Javier Hernandez doubled the lead in the 31st, and youngster Jese Rodriguez capped the one-sided match in the 83rd.

Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti rested several first-choice players with his team playing at crosstown rival Atletico Madrid on Tuesday in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal.
