Goals from Asensio and Benzema seal a 2-0 win for Real Madrid over Eibar.
The hosts scored in the 41st minute when Asensio lifted a shot over Dmitrovic from the edge of the box which cushion into the bottom corner.
Benzema then added a second when he nodded his free header into the back of the net.
Madrid also had three goals ruled out for offside and Asensio hit the bar with a free-kick in the first half.
The win moves Madrid into second, above Barcelona, just three points behind Atletico, with both side yet to play this weekend.
Madrid attention now turns to the Champions League though and their quarter-final against Liverpool. Eibar miss the chance to move out of the relegation zone and are now winless in their last 12 league games, with Levante up next for them.
