Espanyol blank Eibar 1-0 to go 5th in La Liga

Cornella de Llobregat (Spain), Sep 26: Espanyol defeated visiting Eibar 1-0 to climb into 5th place in La Liga with 10 points from six matches.

The hosts started the match brightly in front of their supporters at RCDE Stadium, while Eibar – still in search of their first away win of the season – were likewise energetic, reports Efe news.

But both squads lacked precision in the final third and the score remained 0-0 at the break on Tuesday.

The first real threat came in the second half, a strike by Eibar’s Marc Cardona that left Espanyol keeper with no option but to concede a corner.

The scare stirred Espanyol to react and the goal finally came in the 68th minute, when Mario Hermoso headed-in a corner from Oscar Melendo.

The defeat leaves Eibar in the 11th spot, with 7 points from six matches.
