Eibar rout Grada 4-0 in La Liga

Eibar, Feb 14: Eibar outplayed Grada 4-0 and vaulted to the seventh place in La Liga here.

Grada, mired in the 19th spot, were hoping to post a second consecutive victory for the first time this season on Monday though they have never claimed all three points from a match at Eibar’s Ipurua stadium here, reports Efe.

The hosts took the lead in the 10th minute as Adrian Gonzalez converted from the spot after Sergi Enrich was fouled inside the area.

Enrich put Eibar up 2-0 with a goal in the 38th minute that left the visitors dazed and discouraged.

Grada maged a shot on goal early in the second half, but Ivan Ramis’ tally off a Pedro Leon corner kick in the 51st minute put the match out of reach.

Leon added a fourth goal 10 minutes later.

The win brings Eibar to 35 points from 22 matches, just a point behind sixth-place Villarreal. IANS
