Eibar pulled six points from the relegation zone of La Liga

Football News

Eibar tied down a major success at home to Valencia on Thursday night and pulled six points clear from the relegation zone of La Liga. Geoffrey Kondogbia’s shot settled the game in the 17th moment — the central midfielder accidentally discharged past Jasper Cillessen following a tactical mistake from an Eibar corner.

Perhaps Valencia just stayed in the game because of the performance of Dutch goalkeeper Cillessen, which yielded great saves from Jose Angel’s free-kick and also a brilliant save to forestall Sergi Enrich’s header from multiplying the Eibar advantage.

The Basque club was on top of almost all of the game – Valencia had the lion’s share of ownership yet the hosts creating all the huge chances and seven of the eight-goal endeavors in the game came from Jose Mendilibar ‘s side.

Valencia remains eighth in the standings and with only seven matches remaining as their Champions League aspirations appear to evaporate, they ‘re now seven points behind fourth-placed Sevilla.

Eibar remains 17th, however, six points are crucially ahead of Mallorca (26), while Leganes (25) and Espanyol (24 – although on Thursday night they meet Real Betis) keep on languishing.
